Duncan Aviation marks the 20th anniversary of the first mobile engine RRT (Rapid Response Team) located at Dallas Love Field.
In 2000, a dedicated team of mobile-ready turbine engine technicians was formed in the Dallas, Texas, area, becoming Duncan Aviation’s first Engine Rapid Response launch office. Other teams quickly followed in Chicago, Illinois; Denver, Colorado; Phoenix, Arizona; and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The teams provided mobile troubleshooting and AOG engine support for the Honeywell TFE731 engines. The goal was to support operators with much-needed engine support in the field.
As time went on and word got out, each team developed relationships with local customers. Business started trending closer to home as more calls came in for small, routine inspections for the TFE731. At the same time, the teams were being asked to perform more work on the Honeywell AS907, as well as additional engine platforms like Pratt & Whitney, Williams, and GE.
