As one of the world's proudest and most innovative aircraft companies, Beechcraft suffered an identity crisis as an orphaned sibling of Raytheon's empire of mostly defense-related enterprises. The company was cut loose from the corporate backwater more than a year ago, and Hawker Beechcraft is thriving under new owners Onex Corporation. AVweb's Russ Niles spoke with Hawker Beechcraft CEO Jim Schuster and Onex Chairman Gerry Schwartz about the dramatic renaissance and the bright future of the storied company.
