The Beechcraft 1900 is a 19-passenger, pressurized twin-engine turboprop fixed-wing aircraft that was manufactured by Beechcraft.
It was designed, and is primarily used, as a regional airliner.
It is also used as a freight aircraft and corporate transport, and by several governmental and military organizations.

The aircraft was designed to carry passengers in all weather conditions from airports with relatively short runways.
It is capable of flying in excess of 600 miles (970 km), although few operators use its full-fuel range.
In terms of the number of aircraft built and its continued use by many passenger airlines and other users, it is one of the most popular 19-passenger airliners in history.

The 1900 first flew on September 3, 1982, with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification awarded on November 22, 1983 under Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) 41C airworthiness standards.
Like the 1900, the 1900C was certified under SFAR 41C, but the later 1900D version was certified to FAR Part 23 “Commuter Category” standards.

The 1900 entered service in February 1984, with the first ExecLiner corporate version delivered in 1985.
A total of 695 Beechcraft 1900 aircraft were built, making the airliner the best-selling 19-passenger airliner in history.
With market trends favoring larger 50- to 90-seat regional jets, Raytheon ended production of the Beechcraft 1900 in October 2002.
Many airlines continue to fly the 1900.
