Customer Support (GCS) has announced that it has developed an aftermarket
retrofit kit for the installation of genuine Hawker winglets on the Hawker 750.
The enhancement offers Hawker 750 operators a five percent improvement in time
to climb and a four percent range increase at long-range cruise settings.
“This product improvement is
an obvious and logical offering for us to make available as it fits directly in
line with our goals of providing products that reduce operating costs for our
customers,” said Christi Tannahill, Hawker Beechcraft vice president, GCS.
“Further, virtually all of the necessary hardware and procedures have been
previously developed, documented and approved in the 800/900 series aircraft so
integration will be fairly seamless.”
GCS announced Emmanuel
Muntmark with Monsson of Constanza, Romania, as the launch customer for
the modification. Muntmark’s Hawker 750 is utilized by Alfa Air, a charter
operator in Bucharest.
