Beechcraft to showcase military products at defense exposition

Beechcraft Corp., formerly Hawker Beechcraft, is showcasing its military products at the Air Force Association’s annual Air Warfare Symposium and Technology Exposition this week in Orlando, Fla.

The company, which emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Tuesday, is highlighting its T-6, AT-6 and King Air 350 ER ISR airplanes at the event.

The exposition, which highlights aerospace technology and education, runs Wednesday through Friday.

With Beechcraft’s reorganization, the Air Force can be assured of a financially sound, stable partner, the company said in a statement.

“We know that it is important for our military partners around the world to do business with solid partners,” Russ Bartlett, president of Beechcraft’s defense business, said in a statement. The company is pleased to enter this year’s exposition as a stronger, more agile company, he said.
