[12] This replaced the earlier electro-mechanical retraction system of gearboxes, driveshafts and chains and sprockets that was a throwback to the Twin Bonanza. By September 2019, second-hand aircraft were priced between $3 million for early models to more than $4 million for late models.[33]. B200GT[6]) and the larger 350i (B300[6]) models.

[12] Other changes included increased maximum pressurization to 6.5 psi (450 hPa) differential and changes to the cockpit layout. the seats are filled, the King Air 350i delivers a lower seat-per-mile cost on a typical 300 nautical-mile trip than the leading single-engine turboprop — all with the added safety and system redundancy of two Pratt & Whitney Canada engines. The Model 200 and Model 300 series were originally marketed as the "Super King Air" family; the "Super" designation was dropped in 1996. If you rather go "Old School" the C90 or B200 by Carenado is the way to go as Flight1's Super King Air has the G1000 upgraded cockpit and their own FMC.

King Air you can get a 90 (and many different 90s), 100, 200, 350. Many aircraft have well in excess of 15,000 hours on the airframe. With the same cross-section as a King Air B200, the C90A is simply shorter. Of course, the cabin is longer, allowing a full club plus two additional seats. A jet operator would have to spend multiples of the price of a typical C90A before having a cabin as comfortable as the King Air. BB-186;[17] the modifications included changes to the belly aft of the wing to allow photography with a vertical camera, provision for a surveillance radar in a pod under the fuselage, dome-shaped windows on the sides of the rear fuselage to allow observation directly below the aircraft by occupants, and a 50-US-gallon (190 L) usable capacity fuel tank on each wingtip to increase the aircraft's range. I have flown both, King Airs and the Pilatus. Because not all nations would then allow an aircraft of this type to be certified at an MTOW greater than 12,500 lb (5,700 kg), the Model 300LW was also developed at the same time, limited to the lower MTOW. The model 350i, built in 2010, is a derivation of the model 350 featuring a "FlexCabin" configuration that can be swapped easily for a variety of missions. In 1995, Raytheon rolled out its 1,500th King Air 200, complete with an EFIS avionics panel. [22] From October 1995 Beechcraft offered an updated B200 with Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) avionics, this was marketed as the "B200SE Super King Air" (for Special Edition). On October 3, 2018 the US State Department approved the possible Foreign Military Sale of three King Air 350ERs to the Government of Canada for an estimated cost of US$300 million. The cabin pressurization in the 200 is 6.0 PSI. [35] In October 2003, Beechcraft announced that it would deliver future B300 and B300C King Airs with the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite. Throughout the 1980’s, a variety of autopilots were in use, although the older Sperry SPZ-200A was phased out in the early 1980’s in favor of the Collins APS-80 and later the APS-65, as well as the Sperry SPZ-4000. Older C90B’s with less than 2500 hours also tend to sell for a premium, although less so than with the older C90A’s. Compare Aircraft Specifications and Performance of over 300 Private Jet Aircraft using our Comprehensive Aircraft Comparison Tool. The aircraft has a maximum operating altitude of 35,000', a normal cruise speed of 310 KTS/357 MPH, and a 1,404 NM/1,617 SM seats-full range. As the B200 fleet has aged, overhaul on the PT6A-42 has often become prohibitively expensive upon the second and later overhauls. If on the other hand the majority of your sectors are in excess of 150 – 200 nautical miles, then opt for a jet. Description. [60], By early 2010, Hawker Beechcraft was offering structured programme of upgrades for King Air 350ERISR. Photos of the aircraft, which were modified 2005-built B300,[53] showed visual features of the King Air 350ER including a belly pod, and enlarged engine nacelles[54] compared to the nacelles of standard B300 King Airs.
