In addition to representatives from the training and travel Textron stable, the booth will also have displays of McCauley Propeller, Textron eAviation, Bell, and E-Z-GO vehicles including the McCauley newly certified Beechcraft King Air 300 series propeller, the Composite Denali propeller, the McCauley Fixed Pitch, and the Constant Speed propellers.
