“We announced the Hawker
800XPR upgrade at the 2010 EBACE and are proud to debut the aircraft at this
year’s event with EASA and FAA certifications completed,” said Sean McGeough,
HBC president, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific. “Deliveries began
last fall and we’re seeing great interest in the European market for this
upgrade that offers greater range, better time to climb and faster cruise
speeds than the Hawker 800XP, the industry’s best-selling midsize jet.”

continues to be a strong market not only for our midsize business jets but also
our King Air turboprops,” McGeough continued. “Also appearing for the first
time at EBACE is the Special Mission King Air 350ER demonstrator aircraft,
which just last month completed a tour that covered 40,000 miles to 14
countries on five continents – all on schedule and without any unscheduled
maintenance required.”
