Baron Approved for London City Airport

Early this week at the Farnborough Air Show, Hawker Beechcraft announced that its twin-engine Baron has become the only aircraft in its class approved for operations at London City Airport. The airport, located in the city's docklands region less than five miles from London Bridge, requires steep 5.5-degree approach and climbout angles as well as stringent standards for noise abatement.
