Icing On The Cake! HBC Receives Brazilian Order Worth Nearly $200M
When Hawker Beechcraft said earlier this year it wanted to strengthen its foothold into international markets... the company wasn't kidding, or making idle comments. In the early hours of NBAA 2008, HBC announced Brazilian-based Líder Signatures S.A. had ordered 23 aircraft spanning the Hawker Beechcraft product line. Líder, a Hawker Beechcraft dealer and authorized service center since 1996, 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 at NBAA.

and state and local leaders who all committed to working together
to see this project complete."
