NASCAR Nationwide Series Champion and Kansas native Clint Bowyer today took delivery of his Beechcraft Premier IA, the world’s fastest and most technologically advanced single-pilot business jet. With a cruising speed greater than 520mph – 50mph faster than its nearest competitor – the Premier IA is the only light jet in the world that satisfies Bowyer’s need for speed. While in Wichita for the delivery, Bowyer toured the Hawker Beechcraft manufacturing plant and signed autographs for employees.
“The speed and efficiency of the Beechcraft Premier IA is a perfect match for high speed NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer – he can now go fast on the racetrack and in the skies,” said Brad Hatt, president, commercial aircraft. “With its unmatched performance and efficiency, impressively spacious cabin and long list of passenger amenities, the Premier IA is the perfect airplane for Clint and his accelerated lifestyle.”
The Beechcraft Premier IA delivers the performance and capabilities of a much larger jet while providing the economy and efficiency normally found in light jets. It has the largest cabin in its class – at nearly 30 percent larger than what you find in its nearest competitor. As the first and only composite fuselage light jet on the market, the Premier IA’s composite structure has unprecedented structural strength, efficiency and extremely high resistance to fatigue and corrosion. Its fully integrated state-of-the-art avionics suite combined with the quietest cabin and lowest operating cost makes the Premier IA the best value light jet on the market. Bowyer will also have the very best in service and support.
