Beechcraft to Display Two Aircraft at Russia’s Jet Expo 2013

WICHITA, Kan. (Sept. 9, 2013) – Beechcraft Corporation today announced that it, along with its local sales distributor, Premier Aviation, will display a King Air 350i and King Air C90Tx at the Jet Expo 2013 event in Russia. The seventh annual international business aviation show will take place Sept. 12-14, at the Vnukovo-3 Airport near Moscow.

“The King Air product line is evident in this region and we continue to experience a growth in deliveries to the Russian and CIS markets,” said Scott Plumb, vice president, Europe, Middle East and Africa. “This is largely attributed to the country’s flourishing business aviation market, along with the King Air’s versatility to land anywhere and transport more passengers farther on less fuel, which is a great benefit in this region.”

The King Air family of turboprops can meet the challenging mission requirements found in Russia with its large land mass, arctic regions and wind-swept tundra belt. Beechcraft has a 50 percent market share in its competitive segments in the country.

Beechcraft will feature the following products at booth D110 at Jet Expo:

  • King Air 350i – The Beechcraft King Air 350i turboprop features next generation capabilities and efficiency, providing a responsible, sustainable alternative for business air travelers. Not only is the King Air 350i its segment’s greenest aircraft, but it can also take more passengers farther on less fuel – meaning consistent savings for its operators. This, combined with state-of-the-art design and performance enhancements, represents new heights of power and durability, while its new interior means that it has the most comfortable and capable cabin ever offered in its class.
  • King Air C90GTx – With advanced payload and performance enhancements, the Beechcraft King Air C90GTx is part of a long line of hard–working turboprops. With greater range and efficiency, this entry level twin–turboprop aircraft is ready to meet the needs of owners and pilots, as well as value–conscious corporations around the globe. Furthermore, the King Air C90GTx now comes standard with a fully integrated Collins Pro Line 21™ avionics system – the same sophisticated system found in large 30 million dollar jets. Unchanged, however, is the King Air’s singular blend of versatility, ruggedness, comfort and quality.
