Raytheon Airline Aviation Services (RAAS) has delivered the latest in a steadily growing fleet of executive and corporate shuttle Beechcraft 1900Ds to The Williams Group International, a construction and engineering services company based in Atlanta, Georgia. Chief executive Virgil Williams took delivery of the aircraft in August.
The executive interior of the 1900D took around five and a half months to modify and The Williams Group selected the aircraft because of its size and performance capabilities. “We were delighted to be able to work with Williams in crafting the aircraft to meet his demanding specifications,” says Skip Gallagher, RAAS vice president of sales. “We have delivered five refurbished 1900D aircraft as executive or corporate aircraft in the first three quarters of 2005; and this represents our fastest-growing market segment, as more and more companies seek airlift for functional work groups and as shuttles. The stand-up cabin of the 1900D is particularly attractive to Williams and others in this market segment.”
Working closely with Williams and his flight department, the aircraft was converted from an airliner configuration into 11-passenger executive seating consisting of two club groupings plus two individual seats in the rear of the passenger cabin, separated from a forward galley area and side-facing flight attendant seat.
Standard features of the 1900D cabin include supplemental soundproofing, LED-style upwash and downwash lighting, pleated window shades and a 52in (132cm)-wide galley with hot food capability, china and glass storage.
