There was so much going on at the National Business Aviation Association's annual convention in Atlanta this week that some items have stayed in the notebook — until now.
Here's some additional tidbits from the show:
* Journalists questioned Cessna Aircraft CEO Jack Pelton on whether the company is developing a single-engine turboprop Mustang.
There has been talk that there's one in Pelton's personal hangar.
Pelton dodged the question at a media briefing but told the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association that the company is working on a design to fill the niche between the Cessna Corvallis high-performance piston and its Mustang business jet.
* Mid-Continent Instruments in Wichita has added to its aircraft products for general aviation in a line of power products called True Blue Power.
The products were designed and built by the company and include aircraft inverters and emergency batteries housed in blue casings.
The MD-50 500VA static inverter's design is 30 percent smaller than traditional inverters, the company said. It supplies in-flight power for cabin accessories such as laptops, cell phones and MP3 players.
* The creative folks at the Greteman Group have designed an iPhone and iPad app for Signature Flight, a fixed-base operator with 103 operations around the world, including in Wichita.
The app checks Signature fuel prices, calculates fuel discounts and waived handling charges for specific aircraft, locates and provides information about Signature's specific locations and lets users mark favorite locations.
* Executive AirShare, founded in Wichita and based in Kansas City, Mo., is establishing operations at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport so it can expand its fractional ownership program into the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic regions.
The operation will be called Executive Flight Services.
The company will initiate service in Buffalo with a Embraer Phenom 100 entry-level jet and a King Air 350 from Hawker Beechcraft.
* Hawker Beechcraft Services is offering 15 upgrades, known as King Air Transformation, to its line of turboprops.
The aim is to improve performance, capability, safety and versatility while increasing the resale value.
The upgrades are available at factory service centers.
* Hawker Beechcraft's Hawker 4000 set six world speed records from October 2009 and April.
The company was recognized for the records during the show.
They were set between cities in North America, Europe and Asia.
The last record was from Bedford, Mass., to London at a distance of 3,284 miles and an average speed of 542.7 mph.
* The NBAA announced that the Asian Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition is returning with a 2012 show in Shanghai, China.
The show was first held in 2004, at a time many people questioned the potential for business aviation in Asia.
It's now become clear that there is tremendous potential in Asia, said NBAA president Ed Bolen.
* And while it's important to take orders and deliver aircraft, customer service was much talked about at the show.
Bombardier Aerospace, for example, introduced customer delivery teams to provide new business jet owners with a "seamless entry-into-service experience" at no extra cost.
Avionics technicians, cabin interior experts and third-party maintenance specialists will accompany customers to their base of operations to provide instruction to maintenance staff on aircraft systems, equipment, trouble-shooting, general aircraft care and timing of required maintenance.
