The mobile service location can conduct minor service tasks including troubleshooting and AOG support at any given time. With this expansion, Textron Aviation is increasing its team support in Madrid with the addition of two technicians and one office administrator. The company has more than 450 Textron Aviation employees in Europe providing customers local access to factory-direct expertise.

 


Textron Aviation leads the European market with nearly 1,800 jet and turboprop aircraft operating in the region. Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, expanded its footprint in Germany last fall at its Stuttgart facility, now a satellite service center.
