BLR Winglets are Key Upgrade in New Beechcraft King Air 90x Package

Everett, WA, Aug. 7, 2009 — A new Beechcraft King Air upgrade package from Hawker Beechcraft Services (HBS) is good news for King Air C90/E90 operators and for BLR Aerospace.

Speak with BLR representatives in Exhibit No. 5116 (Static Display Area) at the Latin American Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (LABACE) Aug. 13-15 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

HBS recently announced that it is offering a Beechcraft King Air 90x upgrade package, including BLR Aerospace winglets, to enhance handling and performance for King Air C90 and E90 aircraft. The HBS upgrade package also includes a gross weight increase.

“We congratulate Hawker Beechcraft Services on its new product launch,” said Dave Marone, vice president of Sales and Marketing for BLR Aerospace. “We are proud to support this fine organization and its legendary King Air product line.”

Already certified and installed on the King Air 200, King Air 200GT, and King Air 300, winglet systems deliver impressive improvements in stability, cruise speed, and rate of climb. Approximately 190 systems have been delivered to date. Winglets also deliver a range of financial benefits, including reduced fuel consumption, tax deductions, and increased resale value.

The winglet system increases wing aspect ratio to reduce induced drag, allowing the King Air to fly faster on less fuel. By increasing wing surface area, the winglet system provides superior handling qualities during slow flight speed and at higher flight levels.

The BLR King Air 90 winglets are sold exclusively in the United States through the 10 HBS locations. For more information, visit
