Duncan Expands Disinfectant Service To Satellite Shops

Crews trained to use the system can also travel to the customer's hangar with a portable unit.

After introducing aircraft disinfection service at its three main MRO facilities in March in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Duncan Aviation has expanded it to five of its satellite avionics shops, with plans to add more locations in the coming weeks. The company’s satellite locations now offering the service are in Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Houston; Seattle; Teterboro, New Jersey; and Van Nuys, California.

“We’ve had a lot of interest in the disinfectant service,” said Duncan Aviation Fort Lauderdale satellite shop manager Brian Redondo. “We’re planning to take the unit to a couple of local FBOs on the airport to fog their lobbies, and a lot of our customers would like their aircraft disinfected before they start flying again.”

Duncan crews trained to use the system can either perform the service at one of its participating facilities or travel to the customer's hangar with a portable unit. The unit sprays an Environmental Protection Agency–registered and hospital-grade disinfectant on an aircraft’s interior surface via an aerosol, fogger, or spray application. The 100 percent biodegradable disinfectant is non-corrosive and safe for various custom surfaces and avionics, according to Duncan.

The service was initially launched at Duncan's main facilities in Lincoln, Nebraska; Battle Creek, Michigan; and Provo, Utah.
