Hawker Beechcraft announced at ABACE recent orders for three Beechcraft King Air C90GTx turboprops from two aviation colleges in China.
The Civil Aviation University of China (CAUC) has purchased two aircraft and the Xinjiang Tianxiang Aviation College purchased one aircraft. Both plan to use the King Air C90GTx to meet the growing demand for multi-engine pilot training throughout China. The three aircraft are scheduled to be delivered this year.
“We’re proud that the China aviation colleges selected the King Air C90GTx for their pilot training needs,” said Dan Keady, vice president, Asia, Australia and India. “The King Air C90GTx has proven its high performance and reliability with outstanding mission flexibility throughout the world, and offers a solid, stable and progressive platform for advance pilot training.”
