WICHITA, Kan.

The company’s static display – measuring an expansive 36,000 square feet – will feature its entire family of commercial aircraft under one roof at the DeKalb Peachtree Airport. In addition, for the first time HBC’s indoor exhibit at the Georgia World Congress Center will be dedicated to its Global Customer Support organization.
“We’ve designed our exhibit and static display to align with our top priorities in our business – our customers and our aircraft,” said Shawn Vick, HBC executive vice president. “Our static display will be the largest to date and, for the first time, all of our commercial aircraft, mock-ups and meeting rooms will be available under one roof. We are creating an environment out at static that is conducive to what NBAA is all about – conducting business.”
HBC’s indoor exhibit, located at Booth #947 in Hall B at Georgia World Congress Center, will focus on all aspects of the company’s world-class customer support organization. Representatives will be on-site to provide immediate attention and solutions for inquiries regarding warranty, technical publications, parts and distribution, Hawker Beechcraft Services and XPR performance upgrades. Commercial customers who sign a letter of intent on-site during NBAA for a significant aircraft upgrade or modification will receive a free Apple iPadTM.
