Latest King Air C90 Certified
Hawker Beechcraft says itís already delivered 10 copies of its King Air C90GTi, which was introduced at last yearís European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in May. Fuel prices are driving a surge in turboprop sales and the latest in the line of the smallest King Air model puts a jet-style cockpit up front. The C90GTi is equipped with the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite, the same used in bigger King Airs and some of the companyís jets. Hawker Beechcraft touts the C90GTi as an alternative to very light jets in the same price range, noting its seven-passenger cabin and private rear lavatory. The new electronics are built around three eight inch by 10 inch liquid crystal displays that handle all navigation, communication and data functions imaginable. In addition to the Collins suite, the aircraft has updated Pratt and Whitney Canada PT6A-135A engines.
