Duncan Las Vegas ready for Mexico



Duncan Aviation’s satellite avionics facility located at McCarran International (LAS) in Las Vegas, NV, recently obtained an approval from Mexico’s Civil Aviation Authority (Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil or DGAC).

The approval allows Duncan Aviation to perform avionics services on Mexican-registered aircraft at its McCarran facility. According to a company statement, the certificate is good for two years.

“This authorization provides our Mexican customers with a sense of solidarity, commitment and respect for their processes and procedures,” explains Duncan Aviation Satellite Operations Manager Matt Nelson. “We have had several requests from customers with aircraft based in Mexico and we anticipate that will only increase, especially with the upcoming ADS-B mandate.”

Duncan Aviation anticipates upcoming avionics labor shortages as the industry works through the mandated ADS-B upgrades and modifications. Duncan Aviation has access to or holds 37 FAA-approved solutions for ADS-B, which allows the company to perform upgrades on more than 100 aircraft models.
