Qingdao Jiutian International Flight Academy signed a deal with Beechcraft Corp. at ABACE on Tuesday to purchase a King Air C90GTx. The twin turboprop, which will be used to train Chinese pilots, is due to be delivered in October, with Qingdao becoming the first private training academy in China to operate a King Air. “The C90GTx allows students to learn how to fly in a large, multiengine, pressurized, complex aircraft while offering flight schools the benefits of economical turboprop flight instruction in a very rugged and proven airframe,” Beechcraft said.
