While construction continues at Duncan Aviation’s third, full-service FBO in Provo, Utah, the fully functioning, 90,000-gallon capacity fuel farm is online and staffed.
The new hangar at the airport opened in January 2019 and a new line services team has been recruited to meet the needs of both scheduled and drop-in customers, the company has announced.
In the three months that the new hangar has been open, the Line Services Team has moved 538 aircraft, provided 85 fuel loads and pumped thousands of gallons of fuel. The team operates two 5,000-gallon-capacity fuel trucks, and the fuel equipment is certified and is capable of pumping an industry-standard 230 gal/min.
“We are set to have the Stage One IS-BAH audit of our facility in May. We had an internal audit of our services in March, and we met the Air Transport Association of America (ATA) 103 standards for jet quality fuel, National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 407 standards for aircraft fuel servicing and World Health Organization (WHO) standards for potable water and ice,” said line services supervisor Bob Cornett.
Additional facilities soon to open include 275,000ft2 (25,500m2) of maintenance, modifications, and paint facilities. In the meantime, the line services team is providing a full array of line service support and all fuel services.
