Call an airplane the Duke... people expect it to be good. Call an airplane the BEECHCRAFT DUKE... people know it is good! Funny how a name can be a tip-off to the personality of a product. Take the name Duke. If you knew nothing else except the name, you'd expect something special. Big. Strong. Handsome. Tough. Fast on its feet. You'd be right. Now put the name Beechcraft in front of Duke. Beechcraft Duke. Now you know even more. Now you have an airplane that is big. Strong. Handsome. Tough. Fast on its feet. And you know it must be the finest plane in its class. Built by the leaders in the field of business aviation. Right again. The new Beechcraft Duke is the world's fastest, pressurized, all-weather twin in its class. Lowest priced. 286 mph. Over 1000 miles nonstop. Takes up to six in pressurized, silent, air conditioned comfort.
