GENEVA (May 22, 2019) – Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, announced a new Aircraft Maintenance Data Hub for owners and operators of Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker aircraft at this week’s European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition. The new data hub will be available in summer 2019 and will offer a more comprehensive record of all aircraft maintenance performed on Textron Aviation products by working with multiple industry tracking system providers.
“It’s important to our customers that they have a clear understanding and record of work done on their aircraft,” said Kriya Shortt, Textron Aviation senior vice president, Global Customer Support. “This new data hub will offer customers more choices in their tracking system and a comprehensive picture of maintenance records across all their Textron Aviation products.”
Textron Aviation named CAMP, Flightdocs, SierraTrax and Traxxall as recommended providers of aircraft maintenance tracking for the new data hub. While previously exclusive to CAMP, customers now have the flexibility to select the recommended provider that best fits their needs.
The data hub will be a new feature in the Textron Aviation Customer Portal. Customers will benefit from receiving a one-year free subscription from their choice of recommended provider for new and pre-owned aircraft purchased from Textron Aviation.
