Hawker Beechcraft King Air C90GTX

    This addition to the venerable King Air line increases maximum gross weight by 385 pounds, almost doubling the full-fuel payload capability to 750 pounds and stretching the four-passenger range by 230 miles. Hawker Beechcraft added small composite winglets, which boost climb performance and fuel efficiency and improve handling at low speeds and high altitudes. The Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics system carries over from earlier models in the series. The C90GTx replaces the C90GTi model; deliveries started in May 2010.
