Duncan Aviation Releases Its New Certification Straight Talk Book

LINCOLN, NEB. — Duncan Aviation understands not only the importance of certification to the business aviation industry, but also the often complicated process of certifying work on an aircraft. In an effort to make the cumbersome-seeming process a little clearer and less frustrating for operators, experts from Duncan Aviation’s Engineering, Certification and Installations teams have written a Certification Straight Talk Book.

This new book takes a clear and concise look at the process of certifying and documenting repairs and modifications to aircraft. The book also includes a section on importing and exporting aircraft, an explanation of the process of obtaining a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC), and a summary of the current state of global harmonization.

To download a free copy of the new Certification Straight Talk Book, go to the Duncan Aviation website, click the Resources drop-down menu and select Publications, or copy and paste this direct link:
