Rumors continue to swirl about the sale of Raytheon's aircraft division, the manufacturer of Beechcraft and Hawker planes. Raytheon has been looking to sell this division for quite some time, since it doesn't quite fit with Raytheon's other defence contracting business units.

The latest rumors, as reported in The Wichita Eagle, suggest Onex Corp. and Goldman Sachs are potential buyers.

The report does note that the sale would not include the FlightOptions fractional business or Raytheons charter business.
