Visitor Guide

Welcome to Wichita

We are honored to have you as our guest.

As aviation’s first manufactured airplanes filled the skies above Kansas in the early 1900s, Wichita appropriately became known as the “Air Capital of the World,” but there’s more to this community than airplanes. Wichita celebrates its diverse past and cultural heritage in museums with extensive art, history, world events and aviation exhibits.

On behalf of the Textron Aviation team, we welcome you to our company and our city. On each of our campuses, you’ll see aviation’s finest business and military aircraft being designed, built and delivered. In every part of our operations, Textron Aviation is hard at work maintaining the industry’s most stringent standards and working to raise those standards even higher.
