The company is implementing a phased-in return to work plan to align with employee safety, building access and manufacturing priorities. In some cases, employees may be temporarily reassigned to other areas of the business where assistance is required.

Textron Aviation is prioritizing continued care and support of our employees who were injured and assistance to those who were otherwise impacted, determining the structural integrity of the building, ensuring the safety and security of our employees and response team personnel, and coordination and cooperation with all investigations as to cause.
