Beechcraft King Air B200
RVL GROUP’s new Beechcraft King Air B200 aircraft has a ‘quick-change cargo system’ which takes less than 60 minutes to provide stowage for up to 1,500lb (680kg) of cargo.
Specialist aviation services provider RVL, based at East Midlands Airport, used a quick change system developed by US manufacturer Aerospace Resources.
“The new system adds significantly to RVL’s flexibility, not only increasing our overall freight capacity but also providing us with a cargo aircraft which is quicker, and with a greater range, as well as one better able to operate in poor weather,” said the airline’s Head of Business Development, David Lacy.
“The Aerospace Resources conversion system provides us with the flexibility to carry time-critical, high-value, low-volume goods – very much an expanding market – and afterwards rapidly return the King Air to its standard eight-seat commuter configuration.”
The aircraft is the fourth King Air in operation with RVL. It is the only eight-seater (Covid-19 regulations and social-distancing permitting) commuter configured King Air B200 available for charter in the UK.
RVL Group, operating and maintaining its own fleet of 16 aircraft, provides services to a range of private and public sector clients and offers expertise in aerial surveillance and survey, passenger and cargo ad hoc and long-term charter.
