Codie Sharpe has joined the Avionics Sales team

Duncan Aviation has announced that Codie Sharpe has joined the Avionics Sales team at the company’s facility in Provo, Utah.

Sharpe has been a long-time aviation enthusiast and joins the Duncan Aviation team after obtaining her Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) licenses.

During her career she has spent several years flying as a commercial pilot in both business and regional airline settings.

Sharpe brings to this position her knowledge as a pilot and user of the various avionics in the flight deck.

Her experience as a pilot has taught her to rely on the systems and the many safety features of modern avionics.

This hands-on experience on the flight deck will provide our customers with a pilot’s perspective as they consider upgrades to their aircraft.

After taking an aviation technology class at Utah State University, Sharpe’s interest in flying was piqued, which lead to her earning a Professional Pilot’s Bachelor’s degree.

“I was always interested in machines and seeing how they worked; however, until I took the class in college, a career as a pilot never crossed my mind.”

Sharp learned to fly in a Diamond DA-40 equipped with a Garmin G1000 all-glass avionics suite.

After becoming a pilot, she worked three jobs while attending school in order to achieve her dream.

“It was a nice machine, and as a school teaching students to fly, it was far safer to have an aircraft with all the bells and whistles,” says Sharpe.

“I found it super helpful, and I liked knowing I wasn’t going to get lost.”
