DUNCAN AVIATION DESIGNS AND FABRICATES UNIQUE GLOBAL EXPRESS STEP TREAD

Duncan Aviation recently designed and fabricated a new and innovative airstair and entryway treatment for a Bombardier Global Express.

“The Global Express was a recent purchase and the operator had seen a new stainless steel airstair treatment on a different model of aircraft at an aviation trade show,” said Matt Spain, Duncan Aviation Completions Sales Rep.  “He was impressed with how clean and modern it looked and approached Duncan Aviation to see if we could duplicate the look for his new aircraft.”

Duncan Aviation’s Fabrication Shop welcomed the challenge and dove in head first, said Bryan Hart, Fabrication Shop Team Leader. They developed a concept and design going on nothing but a few pictures sent by email while researching a step tread material that matched the customer’s vision and met required flammability requirements. They found the perfect materials and went to work. They were soon able to present a sample to the customers that had the brushed stainless and black rubber accents he had envisioned. “He was more than impressed,” Hart says.

After the customer’s design approval, Duncan Aviation’s Fabrication Team stepped into action and created the unique airstair and entryway.
