Hawker Beechcraft made two announcements late this week aimed at helping to modify and maintain two of its most popular aircraft. First, it announced a new company to provide overhauled engine accessories for the Beechcraft Baron and Beechcraft Bonanza, and then unveiled a new upgrade program for the Bonanza called Bonanza XTRA package.
In relation to the engine development, Quality Aircraft Accessories will overhaul engine parts at its repair station in Tulsa, Okla., and then deliver them to the Hawker Beechcraft parts distribution center in Dallas. Items will include magnetos, propeller governors, alternator drive couplings, starters and starter adapters, according to a statement from the aircraft manufacturer.

A second statement highlighted the Bonanza XTRA program, which bundles several upgrades into a larger aircraft upgrade package that comes directly from the company. Installations from its service networks will be able to add Garmin G500 avionics, D’Shannon Tip Tanks and Gross Weight Increase, a new interior from Aviation Design and an XTRA paint scheme.
Additional modifications include a performance package, avionics package and interior package.
The company notes in its statement that upgrades will vary by model. Aircraft owners interested in the upgrades can contact the company by phone or email via its web site.
