Hawker Beechcraft Corporation Touts Special Mission Strength at Paris Air Show

PARIS – Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) will highlight its flagship commercial product during this year's Paris Air Show June 15-21 at Le Bourget Airport in France. HBC's Paris Air Show 2009 exhibit will showcase the Beechcraft King Air 350ER and Hawker 4000.

The King Air series, a turboprop lineup, includes the King Air 350ER, which offers extended range, long endurance, and can be configured with a variety of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities, as well as air ambulance and other special-mission capabilities. HBC markets, produces, and supports a whole range of special-mission aircraft for militaries and governments worldwide. The King Air 350ER recently made news with the completion of its inaugural combat mission in Iraq as part of the U.S. Air Force MC-12W fleet.

Winner of the prestigious 2008 Robb Report Best of the Best award, the Hawker 4000 is an advanced business jet. It is faster than competitors and delivers superior cruise and range performance.

Also on display at HBC's exhibit will be a mock-up of the newest member of its family, the new Beechcraft Premier II light business jet. Evolving from the Premier IA, the Premier II will feature higher cruise speeds, a 20 percent longer range with four passengers, and an increased payload.
