Duncan Aviation names new director of modifications in Battle Creek

Duncan Aviation has announced that Nate Darlington has accepted the position of director of modifications at the company’s full-service facility in Battle Creek, Michigan.

Darlington will continue in his role as manager of the Battle Creek Paint department, and he will also assume responsibility for the avionics and interior shops. In addition to his current and new responsibilities, Darlington was welcomed as a member of the Duncan Aviation senior management team.

He is taking on these new roles and responsibilities after vice president of modifications and completions, Andy Richards transitioned to executive vice president and chief operating officer of the Duncan Aviation Battle Creek facility. Richards took on his new role after the retirement earlier this month of executive vice president and COO Tom Burt.

“Tom has had a tremendously positive effect on the Battle Creek facility. As we usher in the new era of leaders, we are excited for the opportunity to carry on his legacy, while continuing to raise the bar on quality and customer service,” says Darlington.

“We want to ensure that our facility provides professional development and team member growth because everything starts with our team members—whatever we put into them, we get out.”
