Deliveries of the Beech King Air C90-GT, a more powerful version of the series intended to compete with very light jets, are scheduled to start in December. Two 750-shp Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-135 turboprops will replace the current 550-shp PT6A-21s. Raytheon said the engine upgrade will boost the C90’s cruise speed to 270 knots from 240 knots. Price is $2.95 million.
