David Stanley, a Beechcraft® King Air® pilot, who has found purpose in serving with an organization that has an incredibly altruistic goal; the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) of Australia.
The King Air platform for us is the greatest platform there is. It can operate from short and unpaved runways, and we have enough maintenance centers available within Europe.
The cabin experience is one of the most personal and unique parts of aircraft ownership.
My name is Jorge Gutierrez and my position at Textron Aviation is Crew Chief at the service center in Paris.

Countries around the world are implementing a new way for pilots and Air Traffic Control (ATC) to communicate. Called Controller Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC), the technology aims to supplement traditional radio traffic with text-based messages.
At Textron Aviation, both new and legacy aircraft owners have access to manufacturer-exclusive expertise.

Deciding on the right aircraft for your mission can be difficult.
At the root of any successful working relationship, you will find evidence of trust, communication and reliability.
LuxAviation is one of the oldest private jet operators in Europe.
It started with a recognized opportunity. Taking the time to assess clients' needs, missions and unrealized potential. For BHS Aviation CEO, Daniel Suter, potential would lie within a fixed-wing AOC (Air Operator Certificate).
Private aviation has the potential to unlock a world that propels your business forward unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
I bought my 2007 Mustang in 2018. As I started to fly the airplane and get more and more excited about being a jet pilot for the first time, and saw all the other airplanes on the market that were new, I decided it was time to think about a refresh so I could feel like I was flying a brand-new plane.
Each aircraft tells its own story. It has its own mission and carries its own purpose.
“We have over 50 Textron Aviation products currently in operations worldwide, basically the whole past and present Citation line,” said Robert Fisch, the president of Aviation Services at Luxaviation. “The Citation jet line has been incredibly reliable and economical to run, and the clients just love them.”
“Economy, airport performance, maintenance and parts availability. These are the strong points from Textron Aviation and their products, and this is why we choose them.”
“When I think of Citation, I think of dependability,” Durbin said. “Our primary mission is to get our executives from Point A to Point B safely and quickly as possible. The Citation gives us the ability to do that.”
So the King Air definitely was a decision for lifestyle. We needed to fly with friends and family and needed enough space and endurance. We wanted to go into airfields which are not approachable for most of the other planes and we needed two engines. This was important for us,” said David Hain, King Air owner based in Stuttgart, Germany.
As told by Tim Gallien, a pilot who sat on Textron Aviation’s Customer Advisory Board and gave insight into creating the CESSNA CITATION XLS Gen2 jet.
Hi, my name is Fabian Geckler, I'm the maintenance manager of the Stuttgart facility. We are a satellite station as part of Cessna Düsseldorf Citation Service Center.
When many cargo aviators think of hauling through the skies, they often immediately think the CESSNA CARAVAN turboprop. For one on-demand cargo company based out of Hawaii, it was the aircraft that changed everything.
I’ve owned a bunch of different airplanes but I’ve only had interactions with one jet manufacturer brand and that’s CESSNA. And that’s because I don’t want to leave.
