The fastest King Air turnaround EVER!

Watch as we fuel up, change pilots, board passengers, luggage and catering to a King Air B200, all in less than 8 minutes from shut-down to start-up. Normally, a turn around like this would take between 20 and 30 minutes, but thanks to some quick thinking from the team here at Navair, we had that down to less than 1/3rd!


This turnaround was to facilitate a VIP charter flight to Lord Howe Island on the 11th April 2016, in a Beechcraft King Air B200 – With night fast approaching, no runway lights and a last minute aircraft change required, the team from Navair made the flight happen with only minutes to spare. Our passengers are now safely on Lord Howe Island, enjoying the sunshine on the holiday of their lives, and so is our pilot!
