were upgraded to Pratt & Whitney PT6A-135A models. This provided a nearly 30-knot increase in airspeed and created a distinct market segment within the 90 series. The C90GT segment is quite small, with only 98 models produced. Prices for an average aircraft range from approximately $1,450,000 to $1,500,000. The average hold time of a C90GT was 266 days, with just over 11 percent of the fleet selling in 2016. Seven C90GTs sold in 2016, which is an increase of four units when compared to 2015. The C90GT market appears to be weakening at this time, with a pricing decline of approximately 10 percent in 2016.
In 2008, Collins Pro Line 21 avionics were added and the C90GT was rebranded as the C90GTi. This further segmented the C90 market and created a large value difference between a 2007 and a 2008 model. The C90GTi production run consists of 125 aircraft. Eight units sold in 2016, representing six percent of the fleet. This is an increase from 2015, which saw five units sold. The average days on the market in 2016 was 168 days. Pricing for an average C90GTi range from approximately $1,600,000 to $1,700,000. Pricing dropped approximately 10 percent in 2016.
In 2010, Beechcraft added winglets and the C90GTi became the C90GTx, which is the most current version of the C90 and has a current production of around
150 aircraft. Ten pre-owned units sold in 2016, which represents 6.5 percent of the segment, and is an increase of four units over 2015. Average hold time was 220 days on the market. Pricing for a used C90GTx is between $1,800,000 to $2,400,000 for an average aircraft, which is off around 10 percent from 2015. The pricing on the used C90GTx is trending downward.
Engine Upgrades for the C90
There are a couple of choices for engine upgrades for the C90. Blackhawk offers an XP135A upgrade that provides an increased airspeed and reduced operating costs. GE Aviation offers the H17 engine, which boasts 750 shaft horsepower. This increases the cruise speed, while allowing for a reduced fuel burn. Another choice for both the C90 and F90 is the Pratt & Whitney PT6-135A engine. This engine is also rated at 750 shaft horsepower. Operators can expect a 20- to 30-knot increase in cruise speed for any of these engine upgrades.
King Air B200 Market
The King Air B200 has enjoyed an amazing production run with a basic aerodynamic design that has been largely unchanged for over 40 years. At first glance, it would be easy to group all the B200s together as one single market, however, they can be grouped into seven distinct submarkets.
