Beechcraft to display five aircraft at AERO Friedrichshafen
Beechcraft is displaying five aircraft at the AERO Friedrichshafen show which is being held between April 24 – 27.
The static exhibit at Friedrichshafen Airport will include a King Air 350i, King Air 350ER special mission demonstrator, King Air C90GTx, Baron G58 and Bonanza G36. AERO Friedrichshafen is the largest light aviation and general aviation air show in Europe.
“Germany has one of the biggest economies in the world and is one of the most influential in the European Union,” said Scott Plumb, Beechcraft vice president of sales for Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Not surprisingly, Germany also continues to be a growing market for business aviation.”
Germany has the highest number of business aircraft in Europe and the fifth largest in the world. According to JETNET data, business aircraft numbers in Germany grew from 293 in 2002 to 621 in 2012.
“Germany’s positioning in the heart of Europe means that the majority of business flights across the continent are shorter distance but higher frequency – missions of which turboprops are ideally suited, Plumb said. “This, along with the King Airs’ ability to take off and land on shorter runways and their overall operating costs, show why business leaders and charter companies throughout the country continue to choose this proven aircraft family.”
