Textron Aviation made additional investments in its European service network, with an expansion of its Stuttgart line station facility becoming a satellite service center. The company is expanding its factory-direct service options at Stuttgart Airport delivering shorter downtime and increased flexibility to its customers with twice the amount of hangar space and the expert engineer team set to double in size. This added footprint and expertise at Stuttgart satellite station will now add service capabilities for the Beechcraft King Air series this fall, further enhancing its service offerings for more than 100 operators in Germany. 

Textron Aviation hasmore than 1,800 jet and turboprop aircraft operating in Europe. “We have strategically enhanced our footprint and capabilities in Europe due to the growing demand for services to ensure access to factory-direct service and support to customers,” said Phil Jones, vice president, European Service Centers.  “This new service center model allows us to provide additional factory-direct support and deliver expert care to our aircraft owners and operators, regardless of where they are in the world.” 

As a satellite service center, Stuttgart can provide the same scope of work as our factory-direct service centers but in a smaller capacity. In addition to Stuttgart, Textron Aviation continues to operate two additional line stations in Cannes and Geneva and five company-owned service centers located in Düsseldorf, Paris Le Bourget, Prague, Valencia, Zürich and Geneva. 

The company has a team of more than 450 Textron Aviation employees in Europe providing customers local access to factory-direct expertise, as well as a parts distribution center located in Düsseldorf with more than 40,000 parts available in the region to serve the European Cessna, Beechcraft and Hawker fleet.


Textron Aviation, through its Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker brands, is renowned for its unrivaled global service network dedicated to complete life-cycle support. Textron Aviation’s support organization includes 21 company-owned service centers located around the world with expert service engineers offering maintenance, inspections, parts, repairs, avionic upgrades, equipment installations, refurbishments and other specialized services. In addition to its company-owned footprint, Textron Aviation’s jet and turboprop customers have access to a global network of nearly 200 authorized service facilities. Textron Aviation also offers a mobile support program featuring more than 60 mobile service units, three dedicated support aircraft, and on-site service technicians and support.
