Wichita, Kan. - Textron Aviation welcomed more than 500 Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker aircraft operators together for the first time at the Textron Aviation Customer Conference last week in Wichita. This was the first joint customer conference since the Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker brands combined last year.

“The inaugural joint customer conference provided us a great opportunity to showcase the customer benefits of the integration of these three storied brands through the sharing of company knowledge and customer experiences across the fleet,” said Brad Thress, senior vice president, Customer Service. “The conference also provides an important forum for us to hear firsthand from our operators. We greatly value this feedback, which always plays a role in future products and services we offer.”

Throughout the two day event, customers had access to Textron Aviation leaders and attended a variety of seminars from subject matter experts and numerous supplier representatives on nearly every aspect of aircraft maintenance and operation. Conference seminars were grouped either by aircraft model or by general aviation topic, such as new products, fleet operations, airspace management, international operations or other general interest topics.

Suppliers exhibited technologies and services for aircraft across the entire turboprop and jet product range. Attendees were also offered tours of the various Textron Aviation facilities throughout Wichita, as well as given access to the full turboprop and jet product line – including the new Citation Latitude.

Throughout the remainder of 2015, Textron Aviation will be hosting additional operator forums in Europe, Asia and South America for customers based in those regions.
