QAA tapped for Duke fuel pump overhauls

Dukes Aerospace has designated Quality Aircraft Accessories (QAA) as the only factory authorized overhaul source for Dukes General Aviation Fuel Pumps.

This designation allows QAA to overhaul Dukes Fuel Pumps with the support of the Dukes factory to include manuals, drawings and 100% OEM detail parts, company officials said.

“Having the ability to overhaul Dukes Fuel Pumps at our facility in Tulsa, Oklahoma, gives QAA control of the turnaround time. Our customers have come to expect their parts overhauled and returned to them in 10 days. By doing the work in house and with the support of the factory, we can now add Dukes Fuel Pumps to our list of parts that meet these expectations,” says Brett Benton, Chief Executive Officer, Quality Aircraft Accessories. “In addition to 10 day turnaround on overhauls, we will also have the full line of Dukes Fuel Pumps available on an exchange basis.”

Starting July 9, all fuel pumps requiring overhaul should be sent to QAA’s facility in Tulsa. Dukes Aerospace will continue to offer a factory rebuilt option as well.

    So one maintenance supplier means very high costs to owners like me and 10 day (long) turnaround – that means the airplane is down for over 2 weeks (shipping, removal, and installation plus the maintenance) which is unreasonable for us that really use our aircraft. One supplier is risky and unAmerican (we are a capitalistic country that bases its business concepts on competition, sole sourcing is a very bad idea. This is really a sad sitaution. Us owners will have to look for alternative sources. My Duke is coming up up on maintenance time. I heard an exchange is like $1,400.00 plus shipping, that is ust too high for one pump.
