After taking delivery of the 200th GippsAero GA8 Airvan, Hawker Pacific has begun a regional demonstration tour of the aircraft across the ASEAN region.

Starting in Singapore last week, Hawker Pacific will showcase the GA8 in the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia and IndoChina. It is hoped the aircraft will appeal to the region’s tourism, utility and private markets.

Hawker Pacific is hoping the GA8, which is the highest-production Australian-designed and manufactured aircraft, can add to the 34 countries the aircraft currently operates in.
