Textron CEO Scott Donnelly stated on an earnings call with analysts that the supply chain affected the number of aircraft Textron Aviation delivered. 


“We were a few hundred million dollars lighter versus our initial guide, based on the fact that we continue to see supply-chain challenges,” he said. “I think we’ve had a number of suppliers that were challenged [but] are getting better. But you always have a couple out there that are still struggling. We kind of anticipated that in the back half of the year...There’s still going to be supply-chain challenges along the way, but we think we’ve taken that into proper consideration in terms of the 2023 guide.”
