Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) today announced it will display three of its leading aircraft at Jet Expo 2011, Sept. 14-16, at the Vnukovo-3 Airport near Moscow, Russia. The super-midsize Hawker 4000 and the best-selling midsize business jet, the Hawker 900XP, will be on display along with the Beechcraft King Air 350i. In addition, the company and its regional distributor, HBC Aviation, will have an indoor booth at the event’s exhibition center.

“Russia is a particularly attractive market for us as it offers great potential for the private aviation sector,” said Sean McGeough, HBC president, Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Not only are there a growing number of ultra-high net worth individuals in the region, but given the country’s large land mass, the economic benefits of flying privately is greater than many other countries.”

The company will feature the following products at the show:

  • Hawker 4000 – The flagship of the Hawker line, the composite fuselage Hawker 4000 sets the standard for quality, performance and value in the super-midsize business jet class. With a 3,280 nautical mile non-stop range and cruise speeds up to Mach 0.84, it features a sophisticated composite fuselage, all metal supercritical wing, powerful Pratt & Whitney Canada FADEC-controlled engines and state-of-the-art Honeywell Primus EPIC avionics. The company is anticipating an early 2012 certification of the Hawker 4000 in Brazil.
  • Hawker 900XP – From the best-selling midsized business jet lineage (the Hawker 800 series), the Hawker 900XP has combined new Honeywell engines with enhanced winglets and a large cabin for increased performance, range, efficiency, comfort and unprecedented value.
  • King Air 350i– Now equipped with the Rockwell Collins Venue™ cabin management system and state-of-the-art Beechcraft FlexCabin capability, the King Air 350i sets the standard in cabin comfort, business capability, in-flight productivity and entertainment. It delivers unmatched fuel efficiency and the lowest operating cost per seat mile, making it the greenest aircraft in its class. The King Air 350i is the perfect addition to any corporate fleet.
