Beechcraft appointed Delhi-based Arrow Aircraft Sales and Charters as its sole distributor for India. The aircraft manufacturer, which previously handled the Indian market from Singapore, is also preparing to appoint an India-based executive. The new partnership with Arrow was launched on Monday along with a seven-day regional demonstrator tour to showcase the King Air 250 in Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Kolkata and Bhubaneshwar. Some 70 King Airs are already flying in India, and Beechcraft says many of those operators are looking to upgrade their aircraft.
