Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) today announced it will participate in Egypt’s AVEX International Airshow on Nov. 7-10 at the Sharm El Sheikh International Airport. During the biennial expo, HBC and its local distributor Premier Aviation will jointly host guests at HBC’s chalet, as well as showcase its flagship aircraft, the Hawker 4000. With its innovative composite construction, the Hawker 4000 is the world’s most advanced business jet, delivering an exceptional combination of speed, climb performance and range.
“The region continues to show great interest in our entire product lineup, particularly the Hawker business jets and King Air turboprops,” said Sean McGeough, HBC president, Europe, Middle East and Africa. “In fact, Hawker Beechcraft leads the turboprop market with more than a 65 percent share in the region.”
Most recently, the company received certification on its King Air 350i in Egypt. 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, entertainment and flexibility while delivering unmatched fuel efficiency and the lowest operating cost per seat mile, making it one of the greenest aircraft available to business travelers today.
On display at the show, the composite fuselage Hawker 4000 sets the standard for quality, performance and value in the super-midsize business jet class of aircraft. 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.
