Duncan Aviation has developed new, roll-around Hawker landing gear, which allows aircraft to be moved through all phases of maintenance at the same time the aircraft’s landing gear is being overhauled.
Dan Fuoco, Hawker Airframe Service Sales Rep, estimates that customers will be able to shave at least two weeks, if not more, off of their downtime when a Hawker landing gear overhaul is added to scheduled maintenance, such as a 12-year inspection and paint.
“When the aircraft arrives at Duncan Aviation, the gear is immediately removed and sent to our authorized Hawker landing gear overhaul specialists in our Accessories Department and the roll-around gear is installed, keeping the aircraft mobile,” Fuoco says. “Because the 12-year inspection will be completed ahead of the landing gear overhaul, the roll-around allows the aircraft to go directly to paint without any delay.”
Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln, Nebraska, headquarters has been an Authorized Hawker Service Center since 1998. For more information: DuncanAviation.aero
