Hawker Pacific will deliver four new Hawker 900XP aircraft to Indonesia and five new King Air aircraft to the Asia-Pacific region.

The company will factory deliver a Hawker 900XP to the Indonesian Flight Inspection Department at Little Rock in Arkansas on 5 March.

The aircraft will be used to perform radar checks throughout Indonesia.

Hawker Pacific will support the project through training, technical support and spares.

Additionally, Hawker Pacific is preparing to deliver the first of two surveillance aircraft to the Royal Malaysia Police for maritime and overland operations as part of its on-going programme to supply and support five King Air 350 aircraft.

"Strong sales demand has been spread right across the Asia-Pacific region with King Air sales into the Philippines and Malaysia, as well as two of the new Hawker 900XP aircraft to Indonesia," said Tony Jones, Hawker Pacific's senior vice-president for aircraft sales and flight services group.

He added that Lion Air has purchased two further Hawker 900XP aircraft and said it was welcome news.

"The world economy has certainly had its challenges recently, but it is clear that business in the Asia-Pacific region continues to grow and Hawker Pacific is uniquely positioned to meet that growing demand," Jones said.
