Jet Aviation completes Boston/Bedford FBO refurbishment, welcomes Duncan Aviation avionics shop

October 17, 2018

Jet Aviation has completed the refurbishment of its new Boston/Bedford FBO with a contemporary “cozy chic” style designed to be comfortable and attractive for customers - and is delivering even more customer service by housing a new Duncan Aviation satellite avionics shop in a hangar.

"Our focus on customer service means not only a new style and comfort for customers in the FBO, but also adding a valuable new service by locating a new Duncan Aviation satellite avionics shop in our hangar," said Pam Day, director of FBO Services at Boston/Bedford.

“In the FBO, we’ve applied a new, warmer color scheme and some new wall coverings, in addition to replacing all of the temporary furnishings, décor and design elements that were here when we opened the new FBO last year. We changed the feel and the experience of the FBO. It’s more modern, but still cozy and comfortable. And some of the accents pieces are kind of funky and that’s a fun touch. We call it ‘cozy chic,’ and we’re inviting all of our customers to come in and enjoy the new look.”

The FBO features 30,000 square feet over two stories, with two customer lounge areas, two pilot shower rooms, a snooze room, a pilots’ lounge with two privacy rooms and two conference rooms with full video- conferencing capabilities.

It opened last year shortly after the dedication of the new 40,000 square-foot hangar that can handle aircraft up to Gulfstream G650 and Global 7000. It brings total hangar space to more than 124,000 square feet and total facility space to more than 360,000 square feet.

The facility also has 80,000 square feet of remote, private parking. The location at Hanscom Field just outside of Boston offers easy access to local attractions.

Duncan Aviation has opened an avionics shop in a Jet Aviation hangar with a staff of expert technicians that will also provide maintenance service. Duncan noted the shop not only increases services to customers in the Boston area, but also began operations in time to update aircraft ahead of the FAA’s January 1, 2020, deadline for installing Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B).
