Beech King Air C90GTi's Working As Advanced Pilot Trainer For Shenzhen Airlines

Airline’s In-House Training Academy Acquires Second Aircraft 

Hawker Beechcraft has delivered its second Beechcraft King Air C90GTi to Shenzhen Airlines in China. Shenzhen Airlines is using the King Air C90GTi to provide advanced pilot training at its in-house training academy, Kunpeng International Flight Academy. 

“As China’s aviation industry continues to grow, it is critical to have the proper training aircraft for new pilots,” said Brad Hatt, senior vice president, Hawker Beechcraft Sales. “The King Air C90GTi delivers the lowest priced twin-turbine aircraft with mid-size jet avionics and is ideally suited for use in advanced pilot training roles. As the safety and performance leader in its segment, the C90GTi will serve as a solid base for pilots being trained through Shenzhen Airlines.” 

Shenzhen Airlines founded Kunpeng Flight Academy in 2007, marking the first flight school established independently by an airline company. It offers training courses in IFR and private and commercial licenses. Kunpeng’s main instruction base is located at Wuzhou Airport in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

The C90GTi features an advanced, fully-integrated Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite, the same system found in the King Air B200GT, King Air 350, Premier IA, Hawker 750 and Hawker 900XP. 

Advanced capabilities include a multi-sensor flight management system that utilizes several aircraft position inputs, solid state weather radar and Collins patented Chart Link TM automated chart selection system, all of which greatly reduce pilot workload. Other features include TAWS+, TCAS-I, a high speed USB database loader and optional Collins HF radio. Its advanced digital capabilities in collecting, processing and displaying communication, navigation and surveillance (CNS) data keep pilots wired into a network of ever-changing information. The Rockwell Collins avionics suite also incorporates an Integrated Flight Information System (IFIS).
