Air charter firm XOJet announced today that it achieved more than a 30-percent year-over-year growth in flight hours last year. The company said its continued growth has been limited only by fleet size, since it claims demand has consistently exceeded capacity. To drive continued growth this year, XOJet is focused on expanding its fleet. In fact, the company placed an order for 12 Hawker Beechcraft Hawker 800XPr twinjets in October and introduced seven of these aircraft into its fleet this month.

West Star Aviation has received approval for an STC to install the Safe Flight Instrument Auto Power System in Pro Line 21-equipped Hawker 800XPs, 850XPs, 750s, 900s and 800XPrs. Installation on compatible aircraft can take as little as two weeks at the MRO’s Grand Junction, Colo. facility. “One huge benefit is that the system ensures a constant fuel burn, which can result in 3-percent fuel savings,” said Aaron Berg, West Star’s avionics technical sales manager.

While Boisture’s assessment appears accurate, there are also signs that Hawker Beechcraft remains stuck, not between a rock and a hard place, but between a hard place and a harder place. And while some of Wichita-based OEM’s problems have their source in the current recession, others are more than a decade in the making, well before Boisture began his tenure at HBC in 2009.

Business aviation in the Middle East is expected to keep growing at a faster rate than that seen in North America and Europe, but slower than the more dynamic expansion now being seen in the emerging markets of Asia. This is the broad consensus among manufacturers and service providers for a region that is now emerging from a somewhat unsettled two-year period that has seen some fall-out from wider economic problems and the so-called Arab Spring political unrest.
