"KING AIR 90, for Turbo Prop Aircraft Charter!"

Beech has produced six different basic King Air models, with the 90 series the smallest. The first Model 90 King Air was introduced in 1964.

It was basically a Queen Air with turboprops. After its introduction, the 90 series went through a number of air frame and power plant modifications.

The King Air competes with other turboprops such as the MU-2, Conquest, and Cheyenne 400 LS. Beech airplanes are now being built by Hawker Beechcraft.

Over time, both the engine and the powerplant grew. The A90 came along in 1966 with reverse pitch props, increased cabin pressure (3.1 psi to 4.6 psi), the PT6A-20 engine, and a gross weight increase of 300 pounds.

In 1968, the B90 brought an increase in wingspan, recontoured rear fuselage, balanced controls, and a 350-pound gross weight increase.

The C90 was next to be introduced in 1971, with a new cabin pressurization system that used bleed air from the engines (which increased cabin noise and reduced engine power).

The E90 featured a PT6A-28 engine in 1972, and in 1979, the F90 appeared with a T-tail, 750-shp engines, and a 600-pound increase in useful load.

The King Air typically has the club seating arrangement, and a fifth "side-facing" seat is available for the back.

The airplane is a seven- to ten-place, pressurized, all-metal, low-wing, twin-engine, turboprop airplane with retractable landing gear.

The Beech King Air is the world's most popular turboprop aircraft.

Beech Aircraft Corporation developed the King Air in 1964 as a compromise between piston-engine and jet aircraft and the design quickly found success.

The King Air can fly farther and higher than piston-engine aircraft, and, unlike many jets, it can land on the short runways of most small airports.

With the three different models, including the C90B, still in production in 2001, this aircraft remains the primary business aircraft for small to mid-size companies.

It is an integral part of the flight inventories of many larger corporations.

Built-for-comfort, not-for-speed has been the design mantra for 90 series King Airs for more than half a century.

The roomy 179-cu.-ft. main cabin, measuring section 4.8 ft. tall, 4.5 ft. wide and 7.5 ft. long, seats four passengers in club.

Some aircraft have an additional seat or two in the 48-cu.-ft. aft baggage compartment.

In the aft cabin, there is a full-width, internally service lavatory with privacy curtain.

Converted aircraft enjoy excellent factory support from Textron Aviation, Raisbeck Engineering, Garmin and Blackhawk Modifications.
