Beechcraft has secured an order for up to 105 King Air 350i aircraft in what is believed to be the largest ever order for GA propeller aircraft. The deal with fractional ownership company Wheels Up is valued at US$1.4 billion and includes a US$600 million maintenance support program.
The first 35 aircraft will be delivered from now through to mid-2015.
Beechcraft emerged from bankruptcy protection only six months ago.
