Textron Aviation opens larger service center in Paris


Textron Aviation has opened a larger service center at Paris-Le Bourget Airport, France, offering maintenance and repair services for Citation business jets and Beechcraft King Air turboprops. The 156,000ft² facility includes a 42,000ft² service bay, double the size of the service bay in the former Paris service center.

“The new facility is three times larger than the original and offers faster service, easier facility access and first-class customer areas,” said Brad Thress, senior vice president, customer service, Textron Aviation.

“With the combination of Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker under Textron Aviation, and with the increased business aviation activity in Paris, we wanted a larger and more robust center there to match the other facilities across Europe. The feedback from customers has been very positive.”

Textron Aviation’s business jet and turboprop aircraft product support organization includes a worldwide network of authorized service centers and 21 company-owned facilities with thousands of expert service engineers offering maintenance, inspections, parts, repairs, avionic upgrades, equipment installations, refurbishments and other specialized services. Textron Aviation also offers Airespond, a mobile service program featuring more than 40 mobile service units, multiple aircraft, and on-site service technicians and support.
