Hawker Beechcraft King Air models receive New Zealand certification, begin first deliveries

Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) today announced it has received type certification from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of New Zealand for its Beechcraft King Air 350i turboprop. First deliveries of the aircraft commenced in January. The company and its regional distributor Hawker Pacific are displaying the 350i at the Australian International Airshow and Aerospace and Defence Exposition this week at the Avalon Airport near Geelong, Victoria.

"The King Air 350 has traditionally been popular in this market due to its impressive payload, speed and range – offering low operating costs, increased performance and greater system redundancy over previous models and other aircraft," said Dan Keady, HBC vice president, South Asia Pacific. "The 350i also features Rockwell Collins avionics and cabin management system, which greatly reduce pilot workload and increases passenger comfort. They are ideal airplanes for this region."

The King Air 350i delivers exceptional performance and value. Now equipped with Rockwell Collins' Venue™ cabin management system and state-of-the-art Beechcraft FlexCabin capability, the new 350i sets the standard for versatility and comfort while delivering outstanding fuel efficiency and the industry's lowest operating cost per seat mile, making it one of the most environmentally friendly aircraft available.
