King Air 350ER stops off at EBACE
Beechcraft is displaying its King Air 350ER demonstration aircraft at EBACE in Geneva this week.
The aircraft is in the midst of a worldwide tour to showcase the King Air’s unique special mission capabilities. During the yearlong tour, the aircraft is scheduled to visit more than 15 countries on six continents, and will fly an estimated 80,000 miles.
“We discovered through a similar tour last year that the best way to demonstrate the performance, versatility and low operating costs of the King Air 350ER is to take the aircraft around the world,” said Dan Keady, Beechcraft senior vice president, Special Missions. “Experiencing the aircraft firsthand makes it easy for governments, military and commercial customers to see why the King Air is the ideal aircraft to address the unique challenges of most special mission operations.”
The tour started in March in Mexico and has stopped at major aviation events such as ABACE in China and Aero Friedrichshafen in Germany
After EBACE, the demonstrator will continue its tour for the remainder of 2013. Some of scheduled stops include: the Paris Airshow in June; LABACE in August in Brazil; the NBAA in October in the US; and the Dubai Airshow in November in the UAE.
