WICHITA, Kan. (Oct. 18, 2013) – Beechcraft Corporation today announced it will bring an impressive aircraft lineup to NBAA’s 2013 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, Oct. 22-24 in Las Vegas. The company will display eight aircraft from its commercial and military portfolio, as well as a historical Staggerwing, at its static display at Henderson Executive Airport, while featuring its Global Customer Support (GCS) organization at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“We are bringing great momentum with us as we return to NBAA this year as Beechcraft Corporation,” said Shawn Vick, executive vice president, Sales and Marketing. “Our rebranded static and conference center exhibits send a clear message for our company: we design, build and support versatile and globally renowned aircraft. At static we’ll have our full line of piston-engine, turboprop, special mission and military aircraft, while the exhibit hall will showcase the products and services our Global Customer Support team offers Beechcraft and Hawker operators.”
The aircraft display at Henderson Executive Airport will debut the AT-6, T-6C and a 1943 Staggerwing.
