Textron adds Flightdocs to recommended providers
Cessna, Hawker and Beechcraft owners now have a Flightdocs option plus a free year of service. Maintenance information will be easily available at both ends of the customer supply chain.
Flightdocs CEO Rick Heine.

Flightdocs has been named a recommended provider of maintenance tracking services for all Textron Aviation business aircraft. The Cessna, Hawker and Beechcraft OEM will now offer Flightdocs as an option for all new and pre-owned factory delivered turboprop and turbofan aircraft, with a free year of service on Flightdocs Enterprise Maintenance and Inventory modules. As part of the relationship, Flightdocs can support all customers enrolled in Textron Aviation's ProAdvantage programme and any in-service Textron Aviation business aircraft.

“We are very happy to announce this new relationship with Textron Aviation,” says Flightdocs CEO Rick Heine. “This is a big win for us, and it is a giant win for Textron Aviation customers. Choice and free market competition always produces the best products and services and now Textron customers get to choose what's best for them. We currently support approximately 1,000 Textron business aircraft worldwide and this relationship will further enhance each customer's experience.”

Using API integrations, the two organisations aim to create a seamless flow of maintenance information and documentation to enhance customer experience. While customers may select Flightdocs' products and services immediately, Textron Aviation and Flightdocs plan on a full integration of systems for enhanced services in Q3 2019.
