The King Air C90GTx
Boldly go where no light jet has gone before
The C90GTx takes you further than its predecessor in an even roomier cabin.
Introducing the King Air C90GTx, an aircraft boasting big jet capabilities in a little package. The latest upgrade to Hawker Beechcraft's venerable King Air twin turboprop line-positioned as an alternative to the light-jet market-features enhanced performance, efficiency and luxury. Designed to replace the C90GTi, the addition of sleek winglets improve climb and cruise speed and help to boost fuel efficiency. An increased weight means the C90GTx can carry almost double the full-fuel payload of its predecessor, up to 750 pounds with fuel-more than any entry-level jet, according to Beechcraft. Range is increased by more than 20 percent, taking you even further than before-that's 1,060 nm at high-speed and 1,195 nm and long-range power settings with four adults onboard. On shorter trips, the roomy and luxurious cabin will comfortably seat up to seven passengers plus a pilot. The cockpit features upgraded Doppler weather radar to detect turbulence and the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics system-the same found in larger jets with much larger price tags. Adding to the C90GTx's appeal is its ability to land in places no other light jet can. The total package is a petite, luxurious aircraft packed with big jet features boasting improved rates of climb, expanded range and greater fuel efficiency. Orders are currently being taken for the C90GTx, with deliveries scheduled for 2010. (316-676-5034; www.hawkerbeechcraft.com)
