King Air C90GTxRobust Strength
“This [is] the quintessential business turboprop,
and its continued existence speaks volumes for how well
it performs every mission.”–Professional Pilot
The Beechcraft King Air has always been about taking performance
to the extreme. With new levels of efficiency and next–generation
engineering, the tough and rugged C90GTx is no exception.
Beechcraft has doubled the C90GTx’s payload by increasing
the aircraft’s gross weight, allowing it to carry more fuel
under all loading scenarios, and fly farther.
Also deserving credit for the King Air C90GTx’s extended range
and efficiency are its innovative composite winglets. Their
unique design reduces drag to allow the airplane to climb faster
and burn less fuel. The King Air C90GTx’s winglet system
additionally provides superior handling during low speed flight and at higher altitudes.
With a renowned ability to land and take off in places where few
other aircraft can, the King Air C90GTx is at home on short runways,
unimproved strips, and hot and high altitude departure scenarios.
