January 4, 2017 – Munich-based 328 Support Services GmbH (328) has partnered with USA-based Duncan Aviation to deliver and certify a full cabin completion on a Finnish registered Bombardier Challenger 604 aircraft. Following 328’s work on the EASA certification, the aircraft was delivered to the customer on time in December 2016. 328 Support Services was responsible for verifying all the engineering data involved in the project as well as certifying the modification with a new EASA Part 21 Minor Change Approval. Duncan Aviation undertook all the production, installation and testing activity at its full service facility in Battle Creek, Michigan.
