Aircraft Data

The King Air is a twin engined, short range turboprop utility or corporate aircraft, built in 4 versions (90,100,200 and 300). Also used widely by military as a trainer and utility aircraft. King Airs are the best selling twin turboprop utility aircraft.

The King Air 90 family was the first of the King Airs, developed from the Queen Air by fitting it with turboprop engines. It has evolved through many sub-versions, to today's C90GT, still in production, 45 years after the first flight.
