Posted 20 December 2017 · Add Comment

Textron has received an order for two Beechcraft Baron G58 and two Beechcraft Bonanza G36 aircraft from Egyptian Aviation Academy.

These aircraft will join the academy’s exclusive Textron Aviation fleet as they continue to modernise their training platforms.

“The Beechcraft Bonanza and Baron are proven platforms ideally suited to train students as they transition into high-performance, turbine aircraft,” said Bob Gibbs, vice president of Special Mission Aircraft. “We look forward to furthering our longstanding relationship with Egyptian Aviation Academy and providing support as it continues to grow and modernise its fleet.”

Egyptian Aviation Academy, located in 6 October Airport, Giza, was established in 1932 and has since grown into the leading training school in the region. The academy has a proven track record of training successful pilots with an exclusive Textron Aviation fleet that includes Cessna Citation Mustang, Cessna Skyhawk 172 and Beechcraft Bonanza G36 and Baron G58 aircraft.
