Hawker Beechcraft has received US Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency type certifications for its new Beechcraft King Air 350i turboprop. Launched in late 2008, the $6.6 million twin includes Rockwell Collins' new Venue cabin management system in its lower-noise, LED-lit cabin. Venue brings digital high-definition video and entertainment and support for a variety of personal electronic devices, including iPods. The cabin itself is more flexible with owners able to reconfigure or remove aft club components to meet specific needs for each mission. The company began deliveries in December.
