WICHITA, Kan. (Feb. 8, 2010) – Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) today unveiled a new,
interactive and multi-dimensional Web site that reflects the same innovation and creativity it has
applied to its industry-leading family of aircraft. The newly-designed, customer-focused site,
www.hawkerbeechcraft.com, not only provides more information than ever before, it offers visitors
a variety of advanced ways to experience what their future aircraft might look like.

“A customers’ first impression is not always stepping inside one of our fine aircraft; it is more likely
with the click of a mouse,” said Ron Gunnarson, director, Marketing. “Our focus in the re-design of
our Web site was to provide our customers with a more rewarding and robust online experience.
We are proud to now have a first-class Web site to match our first-class aircraft lineup.”

The enhanced HBC Web site includes a wide range of interactive and special features, including:

  • 360-degree virtual flight: Customers are treated to an interactive view of the aircraft in
  • Aircraft comparison tool: Finding the perfect match is now much easier. Customers can
    decide which HBC aircraft will best fit their needs by comparing models according to key
    specifications like performance, range and seat configurations.
  • Color selection tool: Customers can browse through a variety of color samples and
    designs and select their own interior fabrics and exterior paint schemes from this interactive
  • Dynamic product videos: These high-flying, fast-moving videos will introduce customers
    to the Hawker and Beechcraft brands like never before.
