    A Kingair C90 does not require a type rating, so the answer is yes from the FAA point of view. The insurance company is likely to disagree. Most of the rules we follow are based on the stricter Insurance requirements. Other variants of the Kingair do require a type rating, for example some of the 200 series and the 300 series.

    yep: never confuse “can legally do” with “be able to”.

    Former Yankee Thurman Munson did it in his new CItation with a Private Pilot’s License and 480 hrs TT.

    The accident investigation is available on the NTSB website 😉
