Hawker Pacific, Asia, Pacific and the Middle East’s leading aircraft sales, services and product support company, is delighted to announce a trio of King Air 350 sales in the Asia Pacific Region: two brand new King Air 350i aircraft sold in Australia and Malaysia, and a King Air 350 supplied in the Philippines.
Tony Jones, Hawker Pacific’s Senior Vice President, Aircraft Sales Group, says the sales reinforce Hawker Pacific’s commitment to servicing the pre-owned and new aircraft segments, and recognise the Beechcraft King Air as the right choice for new and existing customers. “The momentum for the King Air 350 range of aircraft, both new and used, remains incredibly strong as the need for extended range, high performance aircraft continues to grow and economic conditions improve. Only months ago, Beechcraft announced the delivery of its 7000th King Air, and we’re expecting to see this number climb considerably over the coming years,” Tony Jones said.
“Hawker Pacific is a long -term partner of Beechcraft - formerly Hawker Beechcraft Corporation - and the hat-trick of orders is a fantastic start to 2013 as the manufacturer formally emerges from Chapter 11 proceedings, with stronger finances and a greater focus on their strongest performing products. The sales reinforce the outlook for solid growth in production rates of the Beechcraft King Air range, and we are confident that the aircraft will provide long-term value, reliability and comfort for the new owners.”
The King Air 350i utilises high technology for increased efficiency, providing a responsible, sustainable alternative. Not only is the King Air 350i the segment’s greenest aircraft, it can also travel farther on less fuel – meaning consistent savings for operators.
The King Air 350i’s state-of-the-art design and performance enhancements represent new heights of power and durability, and a new interior means that it has the most comfortable and capable cabin ever offered in its class. Its legendary ruggedness, reliability and large cabin cross-section also make it the ideal platform for special missions enhancements, including air ambulance, aerial surveillance and reconnaissance.
Hawker Pacific is displaying the King Air 350i aircraft at this week’s 2013 Australian International Airshow and Aerospace and Defence Trade Exposition. Visit Hawker Pacific at Exhibition Hall 1, stand 1L9 for more details.
