Raytheon Aircraft Co. has signed an agreement with Central Flying Service at Little Rock (Ark.) Airport (LIT) to lease a 19,000-sq-ft hangar and office to “primarily service and maintain the Beech 1900.” Raytheon will contract for a number of special services from Central and the facility is expected to employ about 30 aircraft specialists in a 24/7 operation. A spokesman for Central said the agreement is part of its strategy to merge various assets of Central and the neighboring Midcoast Aviation facility. Central acquired the Midcoast operation in June.
