Gancarz has worked for Duncan Aviation for nearly 13 years, and he brings a great deal of knowledge and experience to his new position. He began flying at the Northeast Philadelphia Airport while he was still in high school, and he earned a degree at the Spartan School of Aeronautics in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1997.
“I wanted to learn something new, get to turn wrenches, and continue to pursue my passion for aviation,” says Gancarz.
Gancarz went to work for Hughes AMI Instruments in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, building simulators for F-16s. After accepting a position at Raytheon Aircraft Service in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Gancarz continued adding to his resume and building his line skills.
When Duncan Aviation acquired Mather Avionics Shop in 2008, Gancarz made the transition to the company, and within a few years worked his way to Avionics Team Leader at the Sacramento Satellite.
“Although we’re always sorry to see long-time managers retire, and we’ll truly miss Bob, we’re confident that Greg will do well in this leadership role and continue to serve Duncan Aviation’s customers well,” says Manager of Satellite Operations Matt Nelson.
