Duncan Aviation’s Satellite Facility At Houston Hobby Earns Mexican Certification

Duncan Aviation’s satellite avionics facility at Houston’s Hobby Airport recently received certification from Mexico’s Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil (DGAC), which is the civil aviation authority for the Mexican state. The certificate is good through April 2017.

The certification will allow Duncan Aviation to expand avionics services for our customers based in Mexico. “This authorization provides our Mexican customers with a sense of solidarity, commitment and respect for their processes and procedures,” says Matt Nelson, Duncan Aviation’s manager of Satellite Operations. “We expect to see an increase in our business from Mexico.”

Duncan says it is important to be able to provide service to all of their customers, regardless of location.

“Duncan Aviation continually evaluates its certifications and is constantly communicating with customers and prospects around the world to secure new and maintain current certifications when it makes sense to do so,” says Chris VanderWeide, Duncan Aviation’s chief inspector of International Airworthiness.

Duncan Aviation’s locations in Lincoln, Nebraska; Battle Creek, Michigan; Provo, Utah; and now Houston, hold certificates for 10 additional civil aviation authorities around the world. The Lincoln facility has certifications for Argentina, Bermuda, Brazil, Cayman Islands, China, EASA, Mexico, South Africa, Venezuela and India. The Battle Creek facility has authorizations for Argentina, Bermuda, Brazil, Cayman Islands, EASA, Mexico, South Africa and Venezuela. The Provo facility has certificates for Brazil, EASA and Mexico. And now Houston has a certificate for Mexico.
