The King Air 90GTx is a turbopropeller manufactured by Beechcraft.
The C90GTx was introduced in 2009, as one of the latest versions of King Air 90 models. Its predecessors date back to the 1960’s, starting with the first model of King Air that outsold all of its turboprop competitors combined over the course of the late 20th century. Numerous upgrades have been made over the years to keep the popular model current. As a result of these continuous improvements and advancements, the King Air C90GTx represents the ideal marriage of modern innovations and tried-and-true business aircraft solutions, resulting in a formidable competitor for any other aircraft in its class.
This aircraft has a range of 2’334km and can connect most European city pairs, such as Cologne - Sofia or Birmingham - Bratislava.
The C90GTx presents an excellent value for money, offering a more comfortable cabin than very light jets and some light jets. Passengers will appreciate the C90's spacious cabin, which features a distinctive square-oval design that maximizes head and shoulder space throughout the interior. Not only is the baggage area adequately pressurized and heated, but it is also accessible during the flight. A private aft lavatory is also included as standard.
The model features two Pratt & Whitney turboprop engines and added composite winglets, which increase the maximum takeoff weight, reduces drag as well as guarantees faster climb rates. This aircraft is a great choice for short-haul travel if you’re looking for a travel solution on a budget. Turboprops fly slower than jets, so this aircraft is ideal if you can spare 15-30 minutes.
It has a maximum seating capacity of seven passengers in a high-density configuration, but is most comfortable with five.
