Hawker Beechcraft Services has announced that it has received certification for its composite King Air winglets, which are now available as a retrofit on C90 and E90 model aircraft.
Hawker announced the winglets as a major part of its C90x upgrade package at the 2009 EAA AirVenture expo at Oshkosh.
“The King Air 90x package provides added value and versatility to an aircraft that already has a well deserved reputation as a workhorse,” said Christi Tannahill, HBC vice president, Global Customer Support. “By combining the upgrades and accomplishing the modifications during a single service event, operators can effectively multiply the return on their investment several times over. Additionally, the performance enhancements gained through the installation of the winglets will, over time, provide enough fuel savings to offset much of the cost of the modification.”
