In June, Hawker Beechcraft officially delivered its first Hawker 4000, the super-midsize flagship of its business aircraft fleet, to private owners. A ceremonial delivery to another customer occurred in 2006 but the airplane, then still not fully certified, was a leaseback demonstrator and the buyer never took possession. The FAA granted full certification in June, seven years after the program launch. More than two dozen Hawker 4000s are now in the completion pipeline and about 130 have been ordered, according to Jim Schuster, CEO of the Wichita-based company.

“What we need to do is always lean into the future. When the world changes around you and when it changes against you—what used to be a tail wind is now a head wind—you have to lean into that and figure out what to do because complaining isn’t a strategy. ”

-Amazon CEO and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos at a press conference for the third-generation Kindle Fire tablet.
