Hawker Beechcraft (stand 7061) has delivered three new Beechcraft Bonanza G36s to a customer in the UK and Baron G58 to a Polish operator.

The aircraft are the first European Aviation Safety Authority - certificated piston-powered aircraft to enter service in Europe. Hawker Beechcraft is displaying a Baron G58 and Bonanza G36 at the show, in response to what the manufacturer's international sales vice-president Sean McGeough describes as "great interest in Europe" for the two models.

The Baron G58 and Bonanza G36 are equipped for instrument flight rules operations and feature Garmin G1000 avionics and GFC700 integrated flight control systems. The Baron also has the GWX 68 colour weather radar and optional Jeppesen chart coverage for Europe and other regions.

Meanwhile, Hawker Beechcraft has announced that Braunschweig, Germany-based Aerodata has joined its network of authorised service centres for its Beechcraft product line.

Aerodata specialises in providing turnkey special mission aircraft and has supplied more than 20 flight inspection systems in King Air platforms in the past decade. In 2008, Hawker Beechcraft and Aerodata signed an agreement to co-operate on special mission aircraft.

Using its EASA design approval, Aerodata is able to develop supplemental type certificates for the King Air and produce kits for aircraft modification in-house.

"With the service centre approval, we see a broader perspective to deliver turnkey solutions, including warranty work and service contracts, to our government customers," says Hans Stahl, president of Aerodata.
