Hawker Pacific gets first Australian order for two new Beechcraft King Air 350C Heavy Weight aircraft
Hawker Pacific, a leading aircraft sales and product support company in Asia, the Pacific and the Middle East, announced the first Australian order for two new Beechcraft King Air 350C Heavy Weight aircraft. The Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section) (RFDS) has purchased two of the specialised cargo aircraft from Hawker Pacific. The King Air 350C Heavy Weight model offers an array of valuable features, particularly for aeromedical missions including a uniquely built-in airstair and cargo door and offers an increased payload of 1,400 pounds. The large cargo door is beneficial for the RFDS aeromedical activities, as it will allow improved access for the loading and unloading of patients as well as medical equipment required to be on board. The first of two King Air 350C Heavy Weight aircraft will arrive on Australian soil in April 2015 and will undergo a comprehensive medical fit-out before being incorporated into the RFDS’s existing aviation fleet.
