The Beech 1900 is a pressurized twin-engine turboprop 19-passenger airplane produced by the American manufacturer Beech Aircraft Corporation, today Hawker Beechcraft Corporation. This aircraft is mainly used as a regional airliner and nowadays a freight aircraft or corporate aircraft.
The Beech 1900 is based on the much smaller Beech King Air 200 with a lengthened fuselage. The improved Beech 1900D divers from the Beech 1900C in a substantially deeper fuselage with stand-up headroom. The passenger and freight doors and the cabin windows have been enlarged. The Beech 1900D is equipped with more powerful PT6A-67D (954 kW / 1279 shp) engines instead of the PT6A-65B (820kW / 1100shp) of the Beech 1900C.
