I can't believe nothing is brewing - somebody must know something?

You're absolutely correct. It's like when you have cancer, you get the treatment or have it cut out. When Textron bought Beech, they failed to treat or remove the cancer and now it has a new host. If left untreated by leaving Beech supervision and management in place, Textron Aviation will die a slow and painful death.
Employees suffering from low to no morale. Why? No work in the shop! Again road trips are being turned down stating no one to send - lies, there are plenty of aviation professionals available to do the work - remember there's no work in the shop. Instead management allows another company to do the work. Employees are getting fed up and leaving to work at places like Signature. Textron used to be a company that wanted to build and sell planes, service the customer's aircraft and build a good rapport so that customer would return and buy more planes. GSO management is about keeping it simple but creative, less is more - no planes to work on means less to manage, quality control issues go down, no overtime, employee injuries drop so that causes a decline in WC claims, less parts are needed (no parts on hand - does that affect the budget?). Covid in late 2020 came at an optimum time to blame loss of work on but beginning of 2021 work jumped back up and has now taken a huge drop. It is not covid related now or before. TEXTRON needs to kick some management a– and get the shop back on track providing customers with the highest level of service they deserve and their skilled, seasoned aviation professionals work on a consistent basis. Less work, turning work down and furloughing employees does not make the books look profitable.
It will be ok for now...but come late spring or summer...well that is another story...for another day.
Running very low on work in certain departments at CMF wouldn’t be surprised to see reductions soon.
