Beechcraft signs order for King Air C90GTx at ABACE

Beechcraft Corporation, part of the Textron Aviation segment of Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT), today announced the sale of a Beechcraft King Air C90GTx to the state-owned Beidahuang General Aviation Company of Harbin, China. The companies held a signing ceremony at the Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE) in Shanghai, China.

The order was brokered through Beechcraft’s channel partner in China, Avion Pacific. The King Air C90GTx aircraft will join a fleet of nearly 90 aircraft operated by the Beidahuang General Aviation Company, a subsidiary of the Beidahuang Group, a conglomerate of China state-owned agribusinesses. Beidahuang General Aviation Company plans to use the King Air C90GTx for personnel transport and aerial survey.


The King Air C90GTx is an entry level twin-turboprop aircraft that comes standard with a fully integrated Collins Pro Line 21™ avionics system. Featuring a cabin 50 percent larger than some very light jets, the King Air C90GTx 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 as standard.

Beechcraft this year celebrates the 50th anniversary of the King Air series as the best-selling business aircraft family in the world. Since 1964, Beechcraft has delivered nearly 7,200 King Airs with the worldwide fleet recently surpassing 60 million flight hours.
