As champions of progress, Textron Aviation works to solve problems, and promote health and wellness. This year, the need for communities to come together to stop the spread of COVID-19 has been more important than ever.
The health and well-being of our employees, suppliers, contractors, customers and community continues to be our highest priority, which is why we collaborated with our local government officials and health service provider to set up an on-site clinic to administer COVID-19 vaccinations as an efficient and effective way to stop the spread of the virus.
We’re thrilled to highlight these efforts on World Health Day, celebrated on April 7, 2021, and celebrate this milestone in the fight against COVID-19 with our employees, suppliers, contractors, customers and community.
Throughout March, legendary employee-volunteers helped run the on-site vaccination clinic, so employees and their families were able to quickly and securely receive their vaccination shots.

Textron Aviation employees Patrick and Andrea Smith elected to get the vaccine. "We both have parents that fall in the severely affected category,” said Patrick. “We felt it was the best way we could support a path to protect them.”
As we take time to recognize World Health Day, we are also grateful for the healthcare heroes who have worked tirelessly for those who live and work in the communities we call home. We were proud to be able to donate personal protective equipment (PPE) and use our manufacturing facilities to produce supplies that assisted essential workers caring for COVID-19 patients, but we know that donation paled in comparison to the expertise and dedication these frontline heroes displayed on a daily basis.
Thank you to our incredible employees, suppliers, contractors, customers, community and frontline workers for their efforts in the continued fight against COVID-19.
