HAWKER BEECHCRAFT has appointed CUTTER
AVIATION'S Phoenix, Ariz., facility an authorized service
center for the Baron, Bonanza and King Air lines of aircraft.
Additionally, Hawker Beechcraft is adding the King Air line
of aircraft to service authorizations for Cutter Aviation’s
Albuquerque, N.M., service facility.
Cutter Aviation’s McKinney, Texas, service facility remains
an ASC for the Piston line of Hawker Beechcraft aircraft.
Effective immediately, Cutter’s Phoenix and Albuquerque
service centers are able to perform factory authorized
scheduled and unscheduled warranty services for the Piston
and King Air lines of aircraft.
Cutter Aviation in Albuquerque was originally appointed
a Beech dealer and service center in 1946, and expanded
the relationship to Cutter Aviation in Phoenix in the late
1950s, making Cutter Aviation Hawker Beechcraft’s oldest
authorized service center.
“The entire team at Cutter Aviation is thrilled to once
again be the authorized service center at our Phoenix
location for Hawker Beechcraft,” said WILL CUTTER,
president of Cutter Aviation.
“Generations of Cutter family and team members have
taken care of generations of Beech aircraft owners and
operators at our Phoenix location, and it is fitting that, as
Hawker Beechcraft embarks upon its new and restructured
operation, its newest authorized service center appointment
also is its longest-standing partner. My grandfather signed
our first Beech service center agreement with WALTER
BEECH in 1946, and I’m honored to be able to continue that
legacy and partnership with the newly reorganized Hawker
