To our valued customers, suppliers, and partners:
It is my distinct honor today to be introduced as the new president and CEO of Textron Aviation. As a pilot and engineer, I’m proud to join with our 12,500 global employees who share a passion for aviation and, more importantly, care about your success. Your confidence in Textron Aviation and our products is what drives our focus every day.
Leading this company is a great privilege, and this is an exciting time to be at Textron Aviation. Our company is strong, and our outlook is bright. I want to thank Scott Ernest for his leadership, vision for product innovation, and oversight of the historic Beechcraft and Cessna integration under Textron Aviation during his tenure.
Meeting with many of you and listening to how we can have an even greater impact on your success is important to me. It is our pleasure to serve you as we embrace Textron Aviation’s promising future.
Ronald W. Draper
President and CEO
