Business Segments Description

Bell Helicopter

Bell Helicopter is one of the largest suppliers of helicopters, tiltrotors, and helicopter-related spare parts and services in the world. Bell Helicopter manufactures for both military and commercial applications. A commercial tiltrotor model is also in development.

Bell Helicopter supplies advanced military helicopters and support (including spare parts, support equipment, technical data, trainers, pilot and maintenance training, component repairs, aircraft modifications, contractor maintenance and field and product support engineering services) to the U.S. Government and to military customers outside the U.S. Bell Helicopter is one of the leading suppliers of helicopters to the U.S. Government and, in association with The Boeing Company, the only supplier of military tiltrotors. Bell Helicopter makes sales to non-U.S. military customers only with the concurrence of the U.S. State Department.

Bell Helicopter is teamed with The Boeing Company to develop, produce and provide life cycle support for the V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft for the U.S. Department of Defense. Tiltrotor aircraft are designed to provide the benefits of both helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. The Department of Defense continues to support the V-22 program via Acquisition Decision Memorandums that recorded the results of Defense Acquisition Board meetings in May and July 2003. Through Production Lot 8, the U.S. Government has procured seventy-six V-22 aircraft. An expanded V-22 flight test program is currently under way.

Bell Helicopter is engaged in the engineering and manufacturing development stage of the H-1 upgrade program for the U.S. Marine Corps. This program will produce an advanced attack and a utility model helicopter, the AH-1Z and UH-1Y, which are uniquely designed to have 84% parts commonality, which meets the U.S.  Government intent to reduce operational life cycle costs. In December 2003, Bell Helicopter received a contract from the U.S. Government to furnish six UH-1Y aircraft and three AH-1Z aircraft for Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP)  Lot 1.

Bell Helicopter is also a leading supplier of commercially certified helicopters to corporate, offshore petroleum exploration and development, utility, charter, police, fire, rescue and emergency medical helicopter operators.

Bell Helicopter is a member of Bell/ Agusta Aerospace Company, L.L.C., a joint venture with Agusta, a leading helicopter manufacturer based in Italy, for the design, manufacture, sale and customer support of a commercial tiltrotor, the BA609, and a new medium twin-engine helicopter, the AB139. BA609 development is progressing. Ground run testing of the BA609 commenced in December 2002 and the aircraft achieved its maiden flight on March 7, 2003, in helicopter mode. The aircraft is now undergoing manufacturing modification to add equipment and upgraded software for additional flight testing to be conducted beginning in the third quarter of 2004.

Bell Helicopter supports helicopter operators by providing off-the-shelf spare parts from strategically located distribution centers throughout the world and real time technical services through an extensive network of technical personnel. Bell Helicopter also engineers, manufactures and distributes spare parts for helicopters made by other original equipment manufacturers.

In the light and medium helicopter market segments, Bell Helicopter has two major U.S. competitors and one major European competitor. Bell Helicopter markets its products around the world through its own sales force and through independent representatives. Price, financing terms, aircraft performance, reliability and product support are significant factors in the sale of helicopters. Bell Helicopter has developed the world’s largest distribution system to sell and support helicopters, serving customers in over 100 countries.

Defense & Intelligence

Defense & Intelligence is a primary supplier to the defense and aerospace markets. Defense & Intelligence manufactures “smart” weapons, airborne and ground-based surveillance systems, aircraft landing systems, hovercraft, search and rescue vessels, armored vehicles and turrets, reciprocating piston aircraft engines, and aircraft and missile control actuators, valves and related components. Defense & Intelligence is involved in supplying the U.S. Air Force with some of its premier smart weapons as prime contractor for the Sensor Fuzed Weapon (SFW) and is a subcontractor to The Boeing Company for tail actuation systems on the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM). Defense & Intelligence also holds a primary systems integrator role on the U.S. Army’s Future Combat System for unattended ground systems and sensors. While Textron Systems sells most of its products directly to U.S. customers, it also sells an increasing number of products in over 35 other countries through a growing, global network of sales representatives and distributors.

Actuation products for the aerospace, defense and industrial markets are sold under trade names of HR Textron and APCO. Specialty marine, land vehicle, and turret products are sold under the trade names of Textron Marine & Land Systems and Cadillac Gage. Weapons, surveillance, and landing systems are sold under the Textron Systems name. Reciprocating piston aircraft engines are sold under the Lycoming name directly to general aviation airframe manufacturers and in the aftermarket through domestic and international distributors. Lycoming also is the exclusive supplier of engines for Cessna’s product line of new single engine aircraft.

Cessna Segment

Based on unit sales, Cessna Aircraft Company is the world’s largest manufacturer of general aviation aircraft. Cessna currently has four major product lines: Citation business jets, single engine turboprop Caravans, Cessna single engine piston aircraft and after-market services.

The family of business jets currently produced by Cessna includes the Citation CJ1, Citation CJ2, Citation Bravo, Citation Encore, Citation Excel, and Citation  X. The Citation X is the world’s fastest business jet with a maximum operating speed of Mach .92. By the end of 2003, Cessna had delivered its 4,064th business jet. Under development are the mid-size Citation Sovereign, the light-size Citation CJ3 and entry-level Citation Mustang. First customer deliveries are scheduled in early 2004 for the Citation Sovereign and late 2004 for the Citation CJ3. First customer deliveries of the Citation Mustang are anticipated in late 2006. In the second quarter of 2004, Cessna will begin deliveries of the XLS, which is a faster, longer-range, modernized version of the Excel, and the 2004 Citation  X, which has an improved interior design.

The Cessna Caravan is the world’s best selling utility turboprop. Caravans are offered in four models: the Grand Caravan, the Super Cargomaster, the Caravan Floatplane and the Caravan 675. Caravans are used in the U.S. primarily to carry overnight express package shipments. International uses of Caravans include humanitarian flights, tourism and freight.

Cessna now has six models in its single engine piston product line: the four-place 172 Skyhawk, 172 Skyhawk SP, 182 Skylane and Turbo 182 Skylane, and the six-place 206 Stationair and T206 Turbo Stationair.

Reliability and product support are significant factors in the sale of these aircraft. The Citation family of aircraft is supported by 11 Citation Service Centers owned and operated by Cessna, along with authorized independent service stations and centers in more than 16 countries throughout the world. The Cessna-owned Service Centers provide customers 24 hour a day service and maintenance. Cessna Caravan and single engine piston customers receive product support through independently owned service stations and 24 hour a day spare parts support through Cessna.

Cessna markets its products worldwide primarily through its own sales force, as well as through a network of authorized independent sales representatives, depending upon the product line. Cessna has several competitors in the business jet market. Cessna’s aircraft compete with other aircraft that vary in size, speed, range, capacity, handling characteristics and price.

Cessna engages in the business jet fractional ownership market through a joint venture with TAG Aviation S.A., a worldwide aircraft management and charter enterprise. This joint venture, called CitationShares, began in late 2000. Initially, it offered shares of Citation aircraft for operation east of the Rocky Mountains. It has now expanded to the entire contiguous United States.
