Duncan Aviation Launches Avionics Work-Away Location in Sunny San Diego

LINCOLN, NEB —Duncan Aviation is pleased to announce the opening of its new San Diego, California, avionics work-away location, giving area customers access to the company’s trusted avionics repairs, installations and upgrades. With a dispatch office located at the McClellan-Palomar Airport, Joe Vittling, Satellite Crew Lead, and Christian Ramirez, Satellite Avionics Technician, will travel to owner/operator’s aircraft and hangars at McClellan-Palomar.

Vittling and Ramirez will also provide avionics support to customers located at numerous area airports, including San Diego International, Montgomery Field, Brown Field Municipal, Gillespie, Long Beach and John Wayne. Long-time Manager of the Duncan Aviation Van Nuys Satellite Shop, Tony Russo, will provide direction and oversight for the San Diego team.

“We’re really excited to have the opportunity to serve another great customer base in southern California,” says Manager of Satellite Operations Matt Nelson. “We have some high performing avionics experts who are ready to support customers in the San Diego area. We’re confident operators will also benefit from the leadership and support of Tony Russo and the team at the nearby Van Nuys Satellite Shop.”

Vittling brings more than 20 years of avionics experience to his new position at Duncan Aviation, and he’s worked on everything from the smallest piston plane to the far larger Boeing Business Jets (BBJs). Originally from small-town Sherrodsville, Ohio, Vittling first experienced California’s sun as an Electrical and Environmental Technician during his four years in the United States Air Force.

As soon as he completed his service, he found his first job in civilian avionics at the Van Nuys airport working on various corporate jets. This was just the beginning of a long and successful career in avionics installation and service.

“It’s great to be working for Duncan Aviation, and we intend to provide the best service possible for the general aviation owners and operators in the area,” says Vittling.

This latest Duncan Aviation work-away team provides even more opportunity for owners and operators in Southern California to schedule time now to install the mandated Autormatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) equipment in their aircraft before the deadline.
