Hawker Beechcraft Corporation is a leading business, special-mission and trainer aircraft manufacturer, designing, marketing and supporting aviation products and services for businesses, governments and individuals worldwide. The company markets its products under the Hawker and Beechcraft brand names. In addition, Hawker Beechcraft is the sole source to the United States (U.S.) Air Force and U.S. Navy of the world's best-selling primary military trainer aircraft, the T-6. The company was formerly a division of Raytheon Company.
The decline in the general aviation industry over the past few years resulted in Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (“Hawker Beechcraft”) being unable to meet certain of its financial obligations. During the second quarter of 2012, Hawker Beechcraft filed for bankruptcy protection in the United States. As a result, Onex no longer exerts significant influence over Hawker Beechcraft. On February 15, 2013, Hawker Beechcraft exited bankruptcy. As part of the restructuring, Onex has a nominal equity interest in the company.
