The US Customs and Border Protection Air and Marine Operations (AMO) has signed a contract with Textron Aviation for its 26th and 27th Beechcraft King Air 350CER turboprop.

“These two multi-role enforcement aircraft aircraft will join a fleet of King Air 350 turboprops used to safeguard the United States as part of the coordinated application of AMO's aviation and maritime law enforcement resources,” says Bob Gibbs, VP of special mission sales. “This represents the third and fourth Beechcraft King Air 350CER ordered for AMO in 2020. We are honoured to provide these aircraft in support AMO's mission of protecting the United States.”
