      They've been hanging on by a fingernail for quite a while.
      Glad we sold our BeechJet. It was getting hard enough to get spares back when they were actually breaking even.

      you are a doofus.

      Folks, bankruptcy does not necessarily mean the end of the line for the company. Just like with the US airlines, GM, Chrysler, etc., bankruptcy is a means to restructure debts, lean up the company, and emerge in a more competitive position.

      Sure, by flushing their obligations down the toilet, they can emerge as a moneymaking machine, to the detriment of the entities that they owe money to.
      (Well, other than the fact that they make crappy airplanes: Hawker 4000, BeechJet, Premier 1...
      The King Airs are good machines though.
