Members of Duncan Aviation’s line service team based in Battle Creek and Kalamazoo, Michigan, and Lincoln, Nebraska, recently completed Gulfstream Ground Handling & Servicing Training with FlightSafety International.
The training they received covered aircraft parking, fuelling, towing and mooring, water servicing, lavatory servicing, window cleaning and snow and ice removal for Gulfstream’s G150, G200, G280, G450, G550, and G650 aircraft types.
According to statistics from Gulfstream, Duncan Aviation is one of only eight FBOs worldwide to receive the mid-cabin qualification and one of only 53 to receive the large cabin qualification.
Troy Hyberger, Duncan Aviation’s FBO Services Manager in Lincoln, explained, “The ground service training to support the large and mid-cabin Gulfstream fleet was a valuable tool to increase our expertise on these models. The formal training also provides peace of mind to our Gulfstream customers because it is the most comprehensive training available for fuel service involving their aircraft.”
