Textron Aviation expands King Air service


Textron Aviation’s company-owned service centers in Sacramento (California, USA), Mesa (Arizona, USA) and Paris (France) have gained certification for Beechcraft King Air 90-, 200- and 300-series aircraft service and repair.

“The combination of Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker under the Textron Aviation umbrella continues to pay dividends to our customers, this time with the expansion of company-owned King Air services for our operators in both the Western USA and Europe,” said Brad Thress, senior vice president, customer service. “Throughout 2015, we’ll continue our Beechcraft and Hawker service expansion across our global, company-owned service network.”

The Sacramento and Mesa facilities are the first Citation service centers in North America to gain US FAA authorization for Beechcraft King Air service, opening up factory service options to King Air operators on the West Coast and in southwest USA.

The added King Air service capability at the Paris facility comes shortly after the opening of Textron Aviation’s larger service center at Paris-Le Bourget Airport. Textron Aviation operates two more European company-owned service centers, in Dusseldorf (Germany) and Zurich (Switzerland), with full-service capability for most Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker aircraft.

Globally, Textron Aviation has a network of 21 company-owned service centers, offering maintenance, inspections, parts, repairs, avionic upgrades, equipment installation, refurbishment and other specialized services. Textron Aviation also offers AOG on-site service support through more than 40 mobile support units, an Air Response Team and its Go Teams.
