Dallas satellite shop performs scheduled and unscheduled work on UAVs

Duncan Aviation’s Dallas satellite shop recently started performing repairs to commercial cargo drones, the company said Tuesday. The first Duncan Aviation service facility to add the capability, the satellite shop provides scheduled and unscheduled work, troubleshooting, wire harness repair, GPS signal inspection, and replacement of failing components on UAVs.

With the increased popularity of the use of commercial drones in the U.S. for aerial photography to delivery of items such as groceries, medicines, and food, Duncan sees an opportunity to meet the growing demand for maintenance in the UAV sector.

As Duncan Aviation works to anticipate industry needs, the company said it continues to research and invest in additional resources to keep expanding the services associated with emerging technology.

“We are excited to begin serving customers who are investing in this emerging technology,” said Mark Cote, v-p of Duncan Aviation components, services, and satellites. “Providing services for UAV operators is an extension of our core business and a good example of how we grow and innovate to better serve the industry and our customers as they evolve.”

Along with complete facilities in Battle Creek, Michigan; Lincoln, Nebraska; and Provo, Utah, Duncan operates 30 satellite stations throughout the U.S.

Recently, eVTOL aircraft developers Joby and Archer announced they have secured FAA Part 145 approvals as they prepare to support their vehicles.
