Duncan Aviation unveiled a recent Gulfstream G550 project updated with a new paint scheme at its design centre in Provo, Utah.
The G550 was an early project for the facility’s lead designer, Molly Foster, who joined Duncan Aviation in December 2019, bringing three years of aviation experience.
“The existing scheme had a dated design featuring a palm tree that gave it a Miami Vice look,” said Foster. “The new design now has a light-to-dark blue fade on the nose and engines, and the tail features a hand-painted sunset. I cannot give our paint team here in Provo enough credit for how perfectly that intricate design turned out.”
Foster has been working with customers to create design solutions blending comfort, utility and artistry. The site’s capabilities include exterior paint work and custom interior refurbishments.
“In developing our new Provo design centre, we worked closely with the architects to create an extension of our other two facilities located in Nebraska and Michigan,” said Mary Lee, senior lead designer and team lead. “Molly, our lead designer on site in Provo, has excellent attention to detail and expertise, and she quickly works to put our Provo customers at ease to make their experience in planning their completion project inviting and enjoyable.”
Foster is currently working on the details of a large-scale interior refurbishment for a Global Express customer. The aircraft is due to arrive in Provo in December 2020. The workscope also includes full exterior paint work, avionics upgrades and a 20-year inspection.
Duncan Aviation noted the project would showcase the range of capabilities that the Provo site now has to offer. It added that Provo, its third full-service facility, is providing the same range and quality of services that customers have come to expect in Lincoln, Nebraska, and Battle Creek, Michigan, for the past 64 years.
