WICHITA, Kan. (July 9, 2024) – Textron Aviation today announced the relocation of its parts stockroom in Alaska from Fairbanks to Anchorage to improve the accessibility and efficiency of parts distribution in the region. Based on customer feedback, this move builds on the company’s previous investment of increased parts availability in Alaska to better support customers who utilize Cessna and Beechcraft aircraft, including the new twin-engine Cessna SkyCourier turboprop aircraft. The stockroom is located at the Northland Aviation’s Anchorage facility, a Textron Aviation Authorized Service Facility that has been supporting customers since 1986. 


Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker customers receive factory-direct support, maintenance and modifications by Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, through its global network of service and parts centers, mobile service units and 24/7 1CALL AOG (aircraft-on-ground) support. 


“Aviation in Alaska is essential to the transportation infrastructure. Many of our Alaskan customers rely on our products to access their homes, their communities, and run their businesses,” said Brad White, senior vice president, Global Parts and Distribution. “Logistically speaking, Anchorage is the central distribution hub for Alaska. Increasing parts availability and relocating inventory to Anchorage will enable faster delivery times of the critical parts customers need to get back in the air.” 


Textron Aviation is committed to the Alaskan community, ensuring support for the right parts in the region for operators. The company’s parts stockroom in Anchorage is part of a global network of seven parts distribution centers and 17 stockrooms. With over 150,000 unique part numbers and a dedicated team of more than 600 professionals, Textron Aviation is well-equipped to support its customers' parts needs worldwide.   


The entire Textron Aviation team is dedicated to supporting customers throughout the life of their aircraft, wherever they are in the world. Learn more about how Textron Aviation experts are standing by to support them.
