Hawker Beechcraft Launches Zero-Cost Maintenance on Purchase of Premier IA

Delivering value, performance and unprecedented savings – at tax time and now at service time

WICHITA, Kan. (June 15, 2009) – Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) today announced that the world’s largest, fastest, most technologically advanced single-pilot business jet – the Beechcraft Premier IA – is now a better value than ever before. From now until Sept. 30, 2009, the Premier IA is available for zero-cost maintenance for five years or 1,000 hours, whichever occurs first. In addition, customers can take advantage of bonus depreciation in 2009, which could provide significant tax savings.

The Premier IA is not only the fastest, largest-cabin light jet in the world, it also has the lowest operating cost and is the best supported according to a 2008 Professional Pilot Magazine Corporate Aircraft Product Support survey. It delivers the performance and capabilities of a much larger jet while providing the economy and efficiency normally found in light jets. The Premier IA has the largest cabin in its class – at nearly 30 percent larger than what you find in its nearest competitor. As the first and only composite fuselage light jet on the market, the Premier IA’s composite structure has unprecedented structural strength, efficiency and extremely high resistance to fatigue and corrosion. Its fully integrated state-of-the-art avionics suite combined with the quietest cabin in its class make the Premier IA the best value light jet on the market.
