WICHITA, Kan. (Feb. 18, 2009) – Many of America’s most successful companies are under fire for owning business aircraft. They still need to fly and Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) is here to help. In its latest advertising campaign, HBC reaches out to corporations who are under intense pressure to divest their business aircraft.
“Many in the media and some politicians have misrepresented business aircraft as a symbol of excess instead of an increasingly necessary business tool,” said Charles Mayer, vice president of Marketing at HBC. “This negative stereotype is damaging the ability of American corporations to compete globally and, at the same time, jeopardizing thousands of American aviation jobs.”
