View Service Map

We noticed Textron Aviation’s attention to detail. That contributed to us looking at a Citation jet more directly.

John DiMarco II, DiMarco Group President & COO

They know you by name, and you know them. You have a personal relationship, which is really critical because you’re flying an airplane that not only transports yourself, but also family, friends and business associates. Because of that, I want the work performed by the best, and in my opinion, that’s a Textron Aviation service center or MSU.

There’s no way anyone else would have dispatched my aircraft so quickly.

Marc Dulude, Citation M2 Owner

If you’re not in the area of an authorized Citation service center, Textron Aviation is very good at sending out one of their mobile service units. While the additional cost of labor to have them come out isn’t covered, it is negligible. Using Textron Aviation’s mobile service unit is like having my own worldwide network of maintenance shops. It allows me to operate a coast to coast fleet of aircraft.
