Beechcraft is a company that markets these small business planes though they are manufactured by different companies. Its a company that started in 1932 and was bought up by Raytheon in 1980. Raytheon merged it with Hawker in 1994. In 2006, Raytheon sold the company to Goldman Sachs and Onex Corporation to make Hawker Beechcraft. The recession was not good to the company. They went dove into bankruptcy and pulled out of it in Oct 2012. It now stand proudly on its own as Beechcraft Corporation. Hawker, of course, is the legendary company the made the Hawker Hurricane of Battle of Britain fame. What a history for such an iconic brand. I hope the best for them.
There you have it. A legislature up in arms, a Governor with a plane, and a company getting back on its feet. What amazing times we live in.
