WICHITA, Kan. (June 9, 2010) – Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) will display its Hawker 4000, Hawker 900XP and Hawker 750 business jets in Macau, China, this week at the Asian Business Aviation conference at Macau International Airport. As part of the event June 10-11, HBC will exhibit at Chalet C-4 and display its aircraft at Static position #8.
“China is a major part of an expanding market for business aviation and especially Hawker Beechcraft,” said Justin Firestone, HBC president, Asia-Pacific Region. ”This particular event is designed to reach executives and entrepreneurs who are in the market for reliable and versatile air transportation and we expect to generate significant interest from our participation.”
All three of the Hawker Beechcraft models scheduled for display in Macau are currently in operation in the region. The flagship of the Hawker line, the composite fuselage Hawker 4000, is the most advanced super-midsize business jet in the world. It sets the standard for quality, performance and value in the super-midsize business jet class of aircraft. It was recently certified in China and posted its first delivery in the Asia-Pacific region in November of 2009.
From the best-selling midsized business jet lineage (the Hawker 800 series), the Hawker 900XP has combined new Honeywell engines with enhanced winglets and a large cabin for increased performance, range, efficiency, comfort and unprecedented value.
The latest evolution of the famed Hawker 800 lineage, the Hawker 750 is a new light-midsize business jet that redefines its class with unmatched range/payload capabilities, a large midsize cabin, additional baggage space and proven efficiency.
