Textron Aviation said Tuesday it has received European and U.S. approval for its Beechcraft King Air C90GTx equipped with Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics.

The Wichita-based manufacturer made the announcement on the opening day of the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition in Geneva, Switzerland.

Type certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency and the Federal Aviation Administration allows Textron Aviation to begin deliveries of its upgraded twin-turboprop to customers in Europe and the U.S.

The certification also means that all of Textron Aviation’s King Airs — 350i, 350ER and 250 — will come equipped with Rockwell Collins’ newest glass cockpit as standard equipment, the company said in a news release.
