Jet support facility Duncan Aviation has upgraded its calibration lab so that it can service a range of FBO equipment used to ensure quality of fuel.
This equipment is required by FBO operators to comply with Airlines for America’s ATA 103 standard for jet fuel quality at airports and for military compliance.
The services now offered by Duncan Aviation include instrument calibration for master hydrometers, working hydrometers, multimeters, torque wrenches, and conductivity meters, as well as fuel truck and fuel farm master fuel gauges.
“Because there are so few calibration labs capable of handling numerous calibration specialties, it is not unusual for FBOs to send tools to multiple locations, experiencing several weeks of downtime,” said Ed Sabata, Duncan’s line services trainer and quality assurance specialist.
Turnaround of said instrument calibration is typically within two weeks, according to the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) company, with a tracking service available to inform customers when recalibrations are due.
