"We're proud that the China aviation colleges selected the King Air C90GTx for their pilot training needs," said Dan Keady, vice president, Asia, Australia and India. "The King Air C90GTx has proven its high performance and reliability with outstanding mission flexibility throughout the world, and offers a solid, stable and progressive platform for advance pilot training."

CAUC and Xinjiang Tianxiang Aviation College chose the King Air C90GTx due to its reputation as one of the best training aircraft platforms in the industry. The King Air C90GTx is also used by other aviation colleges and companies for advanced pilot training in China, including Shenzhen Kunpeng International Flight Academy, Xi'an Tenglong General Aviation Co, Ltd. and Ordos General Aviation Co, Ltd.

The King Air C90GTx provides a reliable training experience in a cost efficient aircraft that features performance standards and technology accepted by the majority of airlines around the world.

Key enhancements to the King Air C90GTx include an increase in gross weight and the addition of composite winglets, which improve climb performance and further increase fuel efficiency. Featuring a cabin 50 percent larger than some very light jets, the C90GTx seats up to seven passengers in its famed squared-oval design, allowing greater passenger comfort. It includes an in-flight accessible, heated and pressurized baggage storage area along with a private aft lavatory as standard.
