Overview

The Beech 1900 is a pressurised twin engine turboprop that can seat up to 19 passengers. Development commenced in 1979 on this stretch version of the Beech King Air 200. The first flight took place on 3 September, 1982 and FAA certification was awarded in November 1983 prior to entry into service in February 1984. The 1900 is designed and certificated for single pilot operation in corporate or cargo settings.

The 1900 is powered by two PT6A-65B engines, each flat rated at 1,100 shp. It can operate safely on relatively short airstrips and can take off and land on grass and rough runways. The 1900 features two airstair passenger boarding doors, one near the tail and the other behind the cockpit, as well as a small rear cargo door for access to the baggage compartment.

The 1900C was introduced in1984. It is powered by two 1,100 shp Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A65B turboprops driving four blade constant speed Hartzell propellers.

It has a substantially lengthened fuselage, a modified tail with tailets, and stabilons on the lower rear fuselage. The front airstair remains but an enlarged cargo door replaces the rear airstair. Early models had a bladder-type fuel tank system in the wings; later 1900Cs had a wet wing fuel system that allowed greater fuel storage and increased range.

Production then switched entirely to the 1900D. Beech announced the improved version in 1989 and the prototype, a converted 1900C, made its first flight on 1 March, 1990. The 1900D has a deeper fuselage with stand up headroom, larger passenger and freight doors and windows, twin ventral strakes and auxiliary horizontal fixed tails. More powerful PT6A-67D engines, each rated at 1,279 shp, and winglets improved hot and high performance. Deliveries commenced November 1991.

Production ended in October 2002.
