Certified! Hawker Beechcraft's King Air C90GTi

Company Notes 'Baby' King Air Still Bigger Than Most VLJs

Hawker Beechcraft Corporation announced Monday the certification of the new Beechcraft King Air C90GTi by the Federal Aviation Administration, the latest evolution of the popular twin-turbine Beechcraft King Air 90 series aircraft.

Introduced at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in May 2007, the upgraded Beechcraft King Air C90GTi features an advanced, fully-integrated, Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite, the same system found in the King Air B200GT, King Air 350, Premier 1A, Hawker 750 and Hawker 900XP.

The King Air C90GTi will replace the current King Air C90GT. Hawker Beechcraft delivered 10 King Air C90GTi aircraft in December 2007 and certification has been achieved for Brazil. Pursuits of other international certifications are to follow in Europe, Mexico, Canada, Venezuela and Guatemala.

"With the addition of the Pro Line 21 avionics system in conjunction with the airplane’s recently upgraded Pratt and Whitney PT6A-135A engines, the new C90GTi delivers the lowest priced twin-turbine aircraft with mid-size jet avionics," said Brad Hatt, president, Commercial Aircraft. "The improvements we have made ensure that it will continue to lead this dynamic market segment in safety and performance."

Company representatives pointedly note the C90GTi features a cabin 50 percent larger than most VLJs... allowing the King Air C90GTi to seat up to seven passengers. It also includes an in-flight-accessible, heated and pressurized baggage storage area, plus a private aft lavatory that is standard on every King Air C90GTi.

The King Air C90GTi's Pro Line 21 system includes three eight-by-10 inch large-format liquid crystal displays, as well as digital radio and audio systems. It features advanced capabilities such as a multi-sensor flight management system that utilizes several aircraft position inputs, solid state weather radar and Collins patented Chart Link TM automated chart selection system, to greatly reduce pilot workload. Other features include TAWS+, TCAS-I, a high speed USB database loader and optional Collins HF radio.

Pro Line 21’s total system integration allows electronic monitoring and analysis of all on-board systems, which enhances mission safety and aircraft reliability. It delivers unmatched situational awareness by making retrieval and analysis of flight-critical information as intuitive as possible. Advanced digital capabilities in collecting, processing and displaying communication, navigation and surveillance (CNS) data keep pilots wired into a network of ever-changing information.

The Rockwell Collins avionics suite also incorporates an Integrated Flight Information System (IFIS) offering pilots a wide range of tools to enhance safety and situational awareness. Standard features include map overlays (airways, airspace, geopolitical) and Electronic Jeppessen charts. In addition to these standard features, IFIS options include XM Graphical Weather (US only) or Universal Datalink (world-wide service).
