A new director of production operations has been appointed at Duncan Aviation’s facility in Provo, Utah. Cobi Lane will lead airframe, engine and modifications production areas at the full-service site.
“I’m confident that under Cobi’s leadership our airframe, engine and modifications business will continue to grow and flourish,” said Chad Doehring, executive vice president and COO of Duncan Aviation’s Provo facility. “We are excited that Cobi has joined the team here in Provo, and we know he’ll serve our customers well.”
Lane brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this new position, having worked as a Tech 2 mechanic, senior tech, mechanical team leader, shift leader, service team manager, operations manager and director of customer service over the past 21 years. Prior to beginning his career in the business aviation industry, Lane served in the US Air Force for seven years and worked on maintenance for the KC-135R model tanker.
“I’m looking forward to using my relationship-building skills as I meet with fellow team members, learn the various teams and get started working with our customers,” said Lane. “I’m also looking forward to getting to work and executing on behalf of Duncan Aviation and its customers so we can continue being the best of the best.”
Lane earned a bachelor’s degree in professional aeronautics from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida, and subsequently earned his Airframe and Powerplant licenses.
After settling into their new home in Utah, Lane and his wife Tiffany look forward to spending time with their children and family. Although transitioning to a new job in a new state and moving into a new home are a bit demanding, Lane is looking forward to settling in so he can again fish, work out and go bowling.
