Duncan Aviation to locate Satellite Repair Station within New Chantilly Air DC Facility

LINCOLN, NEB — Duncan Aviation is pleased to announce it is opening its newest Satellite Repair Station in the Washington, DC, area at Chantilly Air’s newly completed Jet Center. The companies have been meeting the needs of business aviation customers for decades, and this latest endeavor will offer complementary services to maintenance and avionics customers in and around the Manassas Regional Airport (HEF) in Northern Virginia.

Located roughly 30 miles from downtown Washington, DC, Chantilly Air’s new FBO adds 60,000 square feet of hangar space along with a state-of-the-art FBO that includes:

  • Conference rooms
  • Pilot lounge with private snooze rooms
  • Crew fitness center and private shower facilities
  • VIP waiting and screening area
  • Rentable office space
  • Go Rentals onsite

Manager of Duncan Aviation’s Satellite Operations Matt Nelson says staffing for the new Satellite is well underway, and the company is planning to start serving customers in the Mid- Atlantic region in April of this year.

“Duncan Aviation is excited to have a presence in this region and honored to be housed in this gorgeous new facility,” says Matt Nelson. “Additionally, our relationship with Chantilly Air allows both of us to build on our brands to create a strong, local presence.”

One year ago, Duncan Aviation celebrated the 35th year of serving customers through its network of 28 Satellite Repair Stations and workaways ( Originally developed to offer avionics support for aircraft owners/operators in times of critical and remote-location needs, the teams located at high-volume business aviation hubs around the country provide popular avionics installations such as:

  • ACA Air Purification Systems
  • Wi-Fi air-to-ground or satellite-based
  • Cabin Systems
  • Flight Management Systems
  • Cockpit Modernizations (Displays, FANS 1/A, ADS-B)
  • And much more

The original concept of placing Duncan Aviation’s experienced, talented avionics technicians closer to customers hasn’t changed, and neither has the desire to place Duncan Aviation’s Satellites in facilities owned and operated by reliable and esteemed aviation companies like Chantilly Air, which has been providing maintenance, fueling, and charter-management services for nearly 30 years.

Satellite Shops are supported by the full-service Duncan Aviation Avionics & Instrument Shop at its headquarters in Lincoln, Nebraska. The Satellites, including this newest station in the

Chantilly Air hangar, will inspect, install, troubleshoot, service, and repair virtually every type of equipment business aircraft have aboard.
