Hawker Pacific, Asia Pacific’s leading aircraft sales, services and product support company, is pleased to announce that it has renewed its Dealer Agreement with Beechcraft, formally Hawker Beechcraft, as the manufacturer officially emerges from Chapter 11 and reinforces its commitment to the Asian Pacific market.
The contract, signed today at the 2013 Australian International Airshow and Aerospace& Defence Exposition at Avalon Airport, will see Hawker Pacific continue to lead and represent Beechcraft products across South-East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. Tony Jones, Hawker Pacific’s Senior Vice President, Aircraft Sales Group, stated today’s signing was a significant vote of confidence in Hawker Pacific and a testimony to the solid partnership forged with Beechcraft over many decades.
“This renewal is an absolute win-win for all parties. Hawker Pacific maintains its representation of one of the finest aircraft manufacturers in the world, while Beechcraft continues its partnership with the region’s most renowned aircraft sales, services and product support company with an unmatched record in infrastructure and sales clout. Importantly, it’s also a winning combination for owners and future owners of the company’s products.” “We’ve already booked a number of sales in 2013 and see continuing improvement in the economy. Beechcraft has emerged from the reorganisation as a trusted and globally recognised brand with stronger financial and operational strength. As the company refines its focus on the ‘hot selling’ King Airs and Beechcraft piston line, we’re very bullish about the next decade and congratulate Beechcraft on their successful restructuring.”
Hawker Pacific is committed to providing the highest level of support to all operators of Beechcraft aircraft based in the region, and has represented Beechcraft – known originally as the Beech Aircraft Company - since 1978. Today, Hawker Pacific is Beechcraft’s Authorised Sales and Service Representative for South-East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific with a partnership that continues to build on the strong foundations established at the beginning of their relationship 34 years ago.
