Hawker Beechcraft during its first quarter 2011 earnings call reported a 32% increase in deliveries year-over-year, highlighted by 24 King Air turboprop family deliveries and 10 piston-powered Beechcraft family deliveries, each up more than 50% from first quarter 2010 results.

The rise in propeller-power was overshadowed by a 15% decrease in overall revenue to $286 million caused by a 21% drop off in business jet deliveries however. The largest decrease occurred for the Hawker 900XP, which dropped to two deliveries from eight in the first quarter of 2010. The company also delivered three Hawker 4000s, one Hawker 800XP, two Hawker 750s, one Hawker 400XP and two Premier IAs.
