Brad Thress, senior vice president, dustomer service at Textron Aviation, says: “Our customers are excited about our new Paris facility and with good reason. The new facility is three times larger than the original and offers faster service, easier facility access, and first-class customer areas.”

“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,” adds Thress.

More than 200 customers and guests attended the grand opening event and toured the new facility, including the service bay, double the size of the service bay in the former Paris service centre.

The Paris centre was opened in 1997 at Le Bourget and was the first service centre outside the US. The new centre is one of six company-owned Textron Aviation service centers in Europe.
