Hawker Beechcraft will give King Air 250 or 350i buyers a free avionics display upgrade in an effort to boost sales as the company emerges from bankruptcy protection over the next several weeks.
The give-away programme for the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion flight deck is aimed at building "momentum" following a lengthy and controversial financial restructuring by Hawker Beechcraft, which filed for Chapter 11 protection in May.
The offer is valid only for aircraft both purchased and delivered between 1 January and 28 February, Hawker Beechcraft says.
Hawker Beechcraft plans to emerge from bankruptcy focused on the turboprop-powered King Airs and piston-powered Bonanzas and Barons. The renamed Beechcraft also will seek to introduce as many as five single-engine turboprop and piston-powered aircraft.
But the company will cease production of the light and mid-size business jets, such as the Hawker 400, Hawker 900XP and Hawker 4000.
