“"My model for business is the Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other, and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team." ”
Hawker Beechcraft Introduces Premier II
Hawker Beechcraft has a program well under way to produce the Premier II update to the Premier I that will climb faster, fly farther and faster, and carry a bigger payload, according to the company. The Premier II will feature new 3,050-pound-thrust Williams International engines and performance-enhancing winglets. With four passengers and full fuel, it will fly 1,500 nautical miles, about 350 nautical miles farther than the original. The model will be priced at $7.365 million in 2010 dollars, compared with $6.25 million in 2008 dollars for the Premier I. The Wichita-based company claims firm orders for 40 aircraft, about evenly split between U.S. and European markets.
