As Beechcraft Corporation announced a 75% increase in its second quarter 2013 deliveries year on year, Hawker Pacific, leading aircraft sales and product support company in Asia, Pacific and the Middle East, congratulated the manufacturer on the significant results and indicated that market sentiment for Beechcraft aircraft in the Asia Pacific region continues to gain momentum.
According to Hawker Pacific’s Senior Vice President, Aircraft Sales & Flight Services Group, Tony Jones, Beechcraft continues to exceed targets and expectations because of the unprecedented quality of all aircraft models it manufactures.
“We’re thrilled, yet not surprised, by these results. There are always going to be customers unwilling to compromise on quality when searching for their new aircraft and thus we’re expecting King Air, Baron and Bonanza sales momentum to remain solid in the region.”
“Only recently, Beechcraft handed over the keys to its 4,000th model 36 Bonanza – an unquestionably robust aircraft that holds a special place in the heart of aviation enthusiasts. The latest Bonanza, the advanced G36 model, has been a great product for the region, with some of the highest volume of sales in the world going into our market.”
“Beechcraft hit yet another landmark only nine months ago too, with delivery of the 7,000th King Air, a significant percentage of which have been sold by Hawker Pacific into the Asia Pacific region over the years. We’re backed not only by the quality and performance of the aircraft, but also the vast and wide support network that we provide to our customers.”
Hawker Pacific is Beechcraft’s Authorised Sales and Service Representative for South-East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific with a partnership that continues to build on the strong foundations established at the beginning of their relationship 34 years ago.
