The new Beechcraft Premier II is ready to hit the open market.
US-based Hawker Beechcraft is gearing up to start deliveries on the €4.7 million Beechcraft Premier II light business jet, with a fuselage constructed from a carbon fibre-coated epoxy resin honeycomb core. The composite material is not only extremely lightweight but also fatigue and corrosion resistant, minimizing operating and maintenance costs. The Premier II can accommodate up to six passengers and their luggage in a cabin made roomier due to the wing’s position under the fuselage. – From James List
