Textron Aviation Owned Service Center Gains Recertification

Textron Aviation’s dedication to sustainability has been reaffirmed with the recertification of its global service network as a Green Aviation Business by the National Air Transportation Association (NATA).

This recognition is part of NATA’s Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses program, which promotes environmental sustainability within the aviation industry.

Textron Aviation Inc., a subsidiary of Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT), provides Beechcraft, Cessna, and Hawker customers with factory-direct support, maintenance, and modifications through its global network of service and part centers, mobile service units, and 24/7 1CALL AOG support.

Four of Textron Aviation’s 20 company-owned service centers — located in Singapore, Paris, Zurich, and Indianapolis — have recertified their Tier 1 status, exceeding NATA’s certification requirements by implementing additional sustainable practices.

These practices include phasing out single-use plastic items, installing motion-sensor lighting, ensuring energy-efficient kitchen appliances and plumbing fixtures, and developing policies to reduce idling in ground support equipment.

Additionally, the Valencia Service Center achieved Tier 2 status for the first time this year.

“We continue to invest in our processes and facilities to promote sustainable solutions globally, understanding the significance of fostering economic growth while preserving our natural resources,”

Brian Rohloff, senior vice president of Customer Support at Textron Aviation said.

To attain base-level certification, all facilities must establish a baseline carbon footprint and work towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions. They must also offer recycling programs, implement paperless systems, install LED lighting, and reduce the use of plastic water bottles.

By the end of 2025, the company aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20% and achieve a 10% reduction in energy consumption, water usage, and waste generation.
