Introducing the Textron Aviation Returnship Program
At Textron Aviation we’re excited to support returners like you. We appreciate the skills, experiences, and perspectives you bring to our company and teams.

Our 16-week, paid returnship program is open to professionals with at least five years of experience who are returning to the workforce after a career break for caregiving of one or more years. If you meet these criteria, we welcome you to apply!

During the returnship, you’ll have the opportunity to revamp your skills, update your resume with new experiences, make connections, contribute to a team, and possibly convert to a full-time position. Along the way, you’ll receive invaluable advice, support, and mentorship from Textron Aviation program managers and from Path Forward.
