In a move to further broaden its customer support and service capabilities, Textron Inc.'s Bell Helicopter segment has acquired SkyBOOKS, an innovative aviation management solutions business that provides comprehensive information necessary for compliance with the regulations of the FAA and international regulatory agencies.
