About the Trust

Who We Are

The Duncan Aviation Family Trust was created in 2004 as a way for the Duncan family to give back to the communities that have helped Duncan Aviation become the largest family-owned business aircraft service facility in the world.

Duncan Aviation currently employs more than 2,600 aviation experts at its full-service MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) service centers in Lincoln, Nebraska; Battle Creek, Michigan; and Provo, Utah; as well as dozens of Satellite and rapid-response locations across the United States.

Mission & Values

The mission of the Duncan Family Trust is to enhance the quality of education, create positive change in the community, and increase awareness and interest in the aviation industry in Lincoln, Nebraska, Battle Creek, Michigan, and Provo, Utah.

The Duncan Aviation Family Trust is based on many of the same values that Donald Duncan instilled in Duncan Aviation when it was established in 1956. Chairman Todd Duncan carries on those values today, which include: honesty, integrity, loyalty and trust, as well as a commitment to focusing on solutions rather than problems and leading through action.

Funds distributed through the Duncan Family Trust center around a vision of life-long learning by exposure to different ideas and cultures. The trust distributes funds and empowers people in the community in order to work toward our vision in a collaborative effort.
