Duncan Aviation has officially added Charlotte, North Carolina, to its mobile engine Rapid Response Team (RRT) network.
Operators in the southeast Atlantic region now have more convenient access to Duncan Aviation services like engine AOG and most scheduled and unscheduled events, including engine changes.
“There is a large presence of business aircraft in this area,” says Andrew Arcuri, East Coast RRT Assistant Manager.
“Having access to a qualified technician in the region allows operators to minimize unplanned downtime and expenses with onsite AOG support within hours.”
The Duncan Aviation RRT has provided mobile engine services to Charlotte and the surrounding area by sending teams from its dispatch locations in Atlanta, Ga., and other areas in the Northeast region.
DiMatteo’s aviation career began in 2013 when he earned his A&P from the National Aviation Academy in Clearwater, Fla. He has hands-on experience with several engine platforms, including Honeywell (AS907/TFE731), Rolls Royce, Pratt & Whitney, and Williams.
In 2016, DiMatteo joined Duncan Aviation on the engine line in Lincoln, Nebraska. Within two years, he was a lead tech on the team and training new technicians.
“It is exciting to have this opportunity of enhancing Duncan Aviation’s brand and building the Rapid Response business in this area,” he says.
“I have been knocking on doors, introducing myself. I want them to know what I can do for them. I want to be their local resource for technical questions and engine Rapid Response needs.”
