Textron Aviation Announces Multi-Year Agreement With University Of Dubuque

Eleven Skyhawks Ordered By The University

A multi-year agreement has been signed between the University of Dubuque and Textron Aviation establishing the university’s commitment to purchase new flight training aircraft solely from Textron Aviation through 2026 to modernize its fleet. As part of the new agreement, Textron Aviation will provide product support, parts and training for the university’s new Cessna Skyhawk 172 aircraft, which will be equipped with the next-generation Garmin G1000 NXi integrated flight deck.

To launch the new relationship, the university has placed an initial order of 11 Skyhawk aircraft and will begin taking delivery in the third quarter.

“As we continue to strengthen our relationships with leading aviation programs, University of Dubuque will play a key role in bringing state-of-the art technology to future aviators,” said Doug May, vice president of Piston Aircraft. “We are thrilled that the university has chosen the world’s leading flight trainer to modernize its fleet and we are excited to work together to advance the future of general aviation.”

University of Dubuque’s Aviation Department provides students with a modernized training experience and the academic and professional tools necessary to be successful upon graduation.                                                

“This purchase completes University of Dubuque’s transition to an all ADS-B 2020 compliant fleet of 23 aircraft,” said Steven Accinelli, director of Aviation Programs at the University of Dubuque. “The Cessna Skyhawk platform provides increased situational awareness, which is critical to flight operations, and the enhanced weather and traffic information is particularly beneficial for new pilots.”

Textron Aviation continues to partner with top aviation programs to support the advancement of general aviation and the modernization of aircraft training fleets.
