The Mexican Navy has taken delivery of a Beechcraft King Air 350ER.

Russ Bartlett, president, of Beechcraft Defense Company, said: “Being chosen by the Mexican Navy for this modernisation programme shows a superior level of confidence not only in Beechcraft products to fill its mission requirements, but in the product support we’ll provide as part of the agreement.”
“This is a great example of how militaries around the globe can take advantage of the broad product range and support that Textron Aviation can provide to meet different requirements,” added Bartlett.
The newly delivered King Air is part of a four-aircraft contract signed earlier this year. The first King Air 350ER was delivered a few months ago, and the remaining aircraft are expected to be delivered by early 2015.
