Beechcraft Baron and Bonanza receive China certification, deliveries to commence

Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) today announced it has received certification for its Beechcraft Baron G58 and Beechcraft Bonanza G36 piston-engine aircraft from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). Both aircraft were approved by the CAAC on June 21, 2010. The first Bonanza in the region, which is scheduled to be delivered in third quarter 2010, will be based in Shandong Province in Northern China.

"The market in China for our entire lineup of aircraft continues to expand, especially as the growing customer base in the region becomes more familiar with the range and capabilities represented by our family of products," said Justin Firestone, HBC president, Asia-Pacific region. "With exceptional records of performance, durability and economy, the Baron and Bonanza provide another level of affordable and practical transportation to both businesses and individuals."

The Baron and Bonanza add to the growing list of CAAC certified HBC aircraft, which includes the Hawker 4000, Hawker 900XP, Hawker 850XP, Hawker 800XP, Beechjet 400A, Beechcraft Premier IA, Beechcraft King Air 350 and King Air C90GTi.

The newly configured aircraft will include Garmin's SVT™ for G1000 as the centerpiece of the enhanced panels. Using sophisticated graphics modeling, it recreates a visual topographic landscape from the G1000 system's terrain-alerting database. The resulting virtual reality display offers pilots a supplemental, color enhanced 3-D depiction of ground and water features, airports, obstacles and traffic – all shown in relative proximity to the aircraft.

Additional equipment added to the Baron and Bonanza standard equipment list includes the GTS 820 Traffic Advisory System and related hardware, the GTX 33ES Mode-S transponder with ADS-B out functionality (replacing the existing GTX-33), an upgraded GDU 104x Multifunction Display that adds an auxiliary video port and provides for potential third-party Enhanced Vision System certifications, and GRC10 and GRT10 wireless remote control systems for XM satellite radio – all supported by Garmin's FliteLevel five-year warranty.

The Bonanza G36 is the most prestigious high-performance single-engine piston on the market, offering six passenger comfort and cabin flexibility not found in similar priced four-seat aircraft. The Bonanza G36 features Garmin G1000® avionics and a GFC 700 flight control system.

The twin-engine piston aircraft that pilots aspire to own, the Baron G58 offers unmatched performance and range/payload capabilities in its segment. It also features a premium cabin that provides the best ride of any twin-engine aircraft, including flexible seating that allows for seating of two, four or six people, with the option to reconfigure and remove seats to accommodate mission needs and large baggage items. Its flight deck includes fully integrated Garmin G1000® avionics with a GFC 700 flight control system and new GWX 68 color weather radar.
