Avion Pacific and Hawker Beechcraft sealed a $50 million deal for 10 Beechcraft King Air twin-turboprops today at ABACE. The order is for a combination of the largest King Air–the 350i–and the smallest, the C90GTx. Deliveries will begin to the Shenzhen-based business aviation services group in the fourth quarter. The company will use the aircraft for VIP travel, pilot training, aerial mapping and weather modification missions. The company also has operating bases in Beijing, Shanghai, Xian, Chengdu, Tianjin and Penglai and is set to soon open a facility in Zhuhai.
