Leading UK specialist aviation services provider RVL Group has increased its freight and passenger-carrying capacity with the addition of a further Beechcraft King Air B200 aircraft to its East Midlands Airport-based fleet.
It brings to four the number of King Air aircraft in operation with RVL, and adds significant versatility to the company’s roster thanks to its eight-seat ‘commuter’ configuration. It is the only eight-seater (Covid-19 regulations and social-distancing permitting) King Air B200 available for charter in the UK – most have a maximum capacity of seven – and is expected to prove ideal for corporate travel, medical teams, engineering crews and other personnel movements.
The B200 can be speedily reconfigured to move loose-load freight, boosting the flexibility of RVL’s already impressive time-critical freight capability.
All the required technical and regulatory groundwork has been completed, with the new aircraft added to RVL’s Air Operator Certificate and transferred to the UK aircraft register.

“The additional aircraft is now fully operational and available immediately for commercial transport flights,” said RVL Head of Flight Operations Richard Baker. “It comes to RVL following a major avionics upgrade and refurbishment and will offer a major enhancement to the services we are able to provide to existing and prospective clients.
“The rare eight-seat configuration gives it adaptability and makes it a cost-effective option for companies seeking to move larger crews. We can operate it on a single or multi-crew basis to meet client needs, with a maximum flight range of 1580 nautical miles.”
