Brazilian-based Líder Signatures S.A. has ordered 23 aircraft from Hawker Beechcraft. Líder purchased what is considered to be one of the largest general aviation aircraft orders in Brazilian history with a value estimated at nearly $200 million. The contract was officially signed by Líder CEO Eduardo de Pereira Vaz yesterday at the 2008 National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Annual Meeting and Convention in Orlando, Fla.
The order consists of three Hawker 4000, two Hawker 900XP, three Hawker 750, five just-announced Hawker 450XP, one Beechcraft King Air B200GT, four Beechcraft King Air C90GTi, two Beechcraft Baron G58 and three Beechcraft Bonanza G36 aircraft.
Deliveries for the 23 aircraft will take place from 2009 to 2011.
