Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) is pleased to announce it has received an order from its international representative Corporate Aircraft for five King Air C90GTx turboprops for deliveries beginning in 2011. The official signing took place at the 2010 National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Annual Meeting & Convention in Atlanta. Corporate Aircraft has offices in Milan, Italy; Paris, France; and Geneva, Switzerland.
Key enhancements to the King Air C90GTx include an increase in maximum gross weight and the addition of composite winglets, which improve climb performance and further increase fuel efficiency. The maximum ramp weight and maximum takeoff weight of the C90GTx have been increased by 385 pounds to 10,545 and 10,485 pounds respectively. This increase in maximum weight provides the C90GTx with a full-fuel payload capability of more than 750 pounds – almost double that of the C90GTi and ahead of any entry-level jet.
The C90GTx features a cabin 50 percent larger than many very light jets. In addition to the pilot, it seats up to seven passengers in its famed squared-oval design, allowing greater passenger comfort. It includes an in-flight accessible, heated and pressurized baggage storage area along with a private aft lavatory that is standard on every King Air C90GTx.
