Hawker Beechcraft Corp. recently completed the 2,000th Beechcraft King Air C90 aircraft.
The plane is scheduled for customer delivery later this year.
“This exciting moment is a direct result of our ongoing strategy of driving new technology into our aircraft in alignment with our customers' needs," said Bill Brown, Hawker Beechcraft executive vice president of global operations. "An impressive lineage of product improvement and continuous enhancement is why the King Air product line is such a success."
The King Air 90 entered service more than 45 years ago and represents a large portion of the company’s entire King Air production. More than 6,500 King Airs have been built in all, the company said.
The company has made improvements to the model, including enhancements to the King Air C90GTx, which includes an increase in gross weight and the addition of composite winglets to improve climb performance and increase fuel efficiency.
