Charter a Private Flight on the King Air 90 from Beechcraft
Air Charter Advisors arranges on-demand air charter services on the King Air 90, the original aircraft from Beechcraft’s series of twin-engine executive turboprops with room for up to 7 passengers within a pressurized cabin.
The Beechcraft King Air 90 began production in 1964, and would become the platform for one of the most successful and popular turboprop series around the world. Originally based on a military version of the Queen Air, this turboprop is ideal for short flights carrying up to 6 passengers, and offers in-flight access to your belongings with easily accessible baggage storage inside the cabin.
More than 3,000 of the 90/100 series models had been delivered by the end of 2008, with variants over the years including the A90, B90, E90, F90, H90; C90, C90-1, C90A, C90B, C90SE, C90GT, and C90GTi. It also led to the introduction of the Model 100 series and all of its variants, as well as the Nextant G90XT, and the Model 200 and 300 series would go on to be marketed as Super King Airs.
King Air 90s are still under production by Beechcraft as the King Air C90GTx, and more than 100 of them have already been built. Today, this turboprop and all of its variants offer fantastic value for short flights with light baggage, including weekend getaways like New York to Nantucket/Martha’s Vineyard, Miami/Fort Lauderdale to the Bahamas, or Los Angeles to Las Vegas.

** depending on configuration
When Beechcraft first introduced the King Air, it was the first aircraft in its class and revolutionized executive and leisure aviation. Attesting to its performance and reliability, it’s the only civilian plane of its kind in continuous production since 1964.
Over the course of its lifetime, not only has it outsold all of its competition, but it has sold more than all of the other turboprops across the market — combined. Today, its only competition comes from very light jets, newer turboprops, and single-engines such as the Pilatus PC-12.
The King Air 90 twin-engine turboprop can be flown as a single pilot configuration, or with two pilots — Air Charter Advisors always recommends using a two-pilot configuration no matter what may be required, as this only adds to the safety of your flight.
As the smaller configuration of the Beechcraft King Air 200, it has taken on many variations. For corporate flights, leisure flights, and cargo, the cabin offers between 5 and 8 seats depending on the configuration. It’s also a cargo workhorse, able to carry large loads of cargo over short distances.
This aircraft is considered to be so reliable that it was once used as a plane in the Air Force One fleet. If you are in need of a turboprop with a larger cabin, be sure to check out the King Air 200.
