King Air 99

About the King Air 99

Designed in the 1960s as a replacement for the Beechcraft Model 18, the Beechcraft Model 99ā€™s first flight was in July 1966. Beechcraft combined features from their other models at the time to create the Model 99; it featured the wings of the Queen Air, the engines and nacelles of the King Air, sub-systems from both, and a unique nose structure used only on the 99. It received type certification on May 2, 1968, and sixty-two aircraft were delivered by the end of the year.

Also known as the Beech 99 Airliner and the Commuter 99, the Model 99 is a civilian aircraft that has twin-engines, an unpressurized cabin with 15 to 17 passenger seats. Production ended in early 1987. As of July 2011, a total of 130 Beech 99 aircraft in civil service with over half now operated as freighters by Ameriflight.
