Duncan Aviation, an aircraft services provider based in the USA, has completed a hangar renovation at its Battle Creek, Michigan, location. The updated facility, formerly an aircraft stripping hangar, has been transformed into a state-of-the-art aircraft paint shop. It has 12,000ft² of space, big enough to accommodate a Bombardier Global Express.
Equipped with a computer-driven sidedraft airflow system that triple-filters the air, an aircraft can be stripped, painted and primed at the facility. Another feature is the adjustable, energy-efficient LED lighting.
The renovation was managed by Tectonic Management Group. With another paint shop located in Lincoln, Nebraska, Duncan Aviation can now paint up to 100 aircraft per year, handling some of the biggest models in the industry.
Doug Bohac, paint manager, Duncan Aviation, said, “The new hangar is a great addition to our paint services in Battle Creek. Customers will see some additional paint capacity and more flexible scheduling.”
