Aerobatic pilot Sean D. Tucker will keynote Textron Aviation’s 2019 Customer Conference, which will be held April 29 to May 1 in Wichita. Tucker, who has flown more than 1,600 performances at some 575 airshows since 1976, is one of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s 25 Living Legends of Flight.
“The Textron Aviation Customer Conference is an exciting opportunity for owners to ask questions, learn more about their aircraft, and hear from industry legends like Sean Tucker,” said Textron Aviation senior v-p of global customer support Kriya Shortt. “It’s a pleasure to host our customers for a mix of education and fun, and it’s also a chance for us to learn more about their needs and wants so that we can better serve them in the future.”
Technical and industry topics at the conference will include trends and challenges for flight department operations; a review of 2018 air safety investigations; program and supplier updates; and analyzing data recorded on AReS II devices. Also on the agenda are an outdoor sportsman day, a hangar social, and tours of Textron Aviation facilities.
The conference is free and open to owners of Beechcraft, Cessna, and Hawker airplanes, but there is a limited number of available spots.
