1989 King Air C90A S/N LJ-1197


Registration: N255DF   

Serial Number: LJ-1197

Year Built: 1989

With advanced payload and performance enhancements, this King Air C90A is part of a long line of hard–working turboprops. The trailblazing Beechcraft King Air family has come to symbolize a relentless pursuit of perfection. Building on 45 years of aviation innovation, this freshly-stylized King Air C90A supplies even more iconic performance and value than ever before.

Enhanced engineering and new design features have elevated the already impressive capabilities of the C90, the King Air C90A’s predecessor. With greater range and efficiency, this entry level twin–turboprop aircraft is ready to meet the needs of owner pilots as well as value–conscious corporations around the globe.

This King Air C90A now comes with a Garmin 500W featuring WAAS approaches, NEXRAD Weather and XM radio combined with an Avidyne EX500 MFD with Jeppesen Chartview – the same sophisticated system components found in large 30 million dollar jets. Unchanged, however, is the King Air’s singular blend of versatility, ruggedness, comfort and quality.


  • Though certified for single pilot operation, the C90A can carry up to seven passengers and their baggage
  • Allowing for shorter trip times and lower operating costs, the C90A can cruise up to 240 knots true airspeed (276 mph) at FL 200 (20,000 feet) with low fuel flow rates
  • Powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-21 turboprop engines with low maintenance costs and low noise
  • Since 2008, this C90A has been owned by a very discriminating owner/pilot demanding the highest level of care, condition and modern equipment.
  • Striking exterior and interior cosmetics and appointments appearing like-new.
  • Backed by the industry’s largest factory–owned product–dedicated global service network
