History

 

The Beechcraft Super King Air family is part of a line of twin-turboprop aircraft produced by Beechcraft. The Model 200 and Model 300 series were originally marketed as the “Super King Air” family; the “Super” designation was dropped in 1996. They form the King Air line together with the King Air Model 90 and 100 series.

Beechcraft currently offers the 250 (design. B200GT) and the larger 350i (B300) models. The 350ER (B300CER) is available to government, military and commercial customers for special mission operations such as aerial survey, air ambulance, flight inspection and surveillance. The Beechcraft 1900 regional airliner was derived from the Model B200 King Air.

The Super King Air family has been in continuous production since 1974, the longest production run of any civilian turboprop aircraft in its class. It outlasted all of its previous competitors; the only other pressurized multi engine turboprop utility aircraft now in production is the Piaggio P.180 Avanti.

New Beechcraft King Air 250s now come equipped with cutting-edge touchscreen avionics technology, greater passenger comfort and enhanced payload options to deliver more people to more places in unprecedented comfort. The Pro Line Fusion™ flight deck brings the first full touchscreen flight display system to the world’s most trusted avionics architecture. The enhanced payload option provides increased mission flexibility.

The legendary comfort of the King Air’s square-oval interior offers generous head and shoulder room, unmatched by conventional cabin cross sections. The King Air 250 interior is furnished with finely crafted seats that are able to laterally track, swivel and recline.

2016 and up are equipped with Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite featuring standard synthetic vision and enhanced situational awareness, there is no need to search through FMS menus. It’s where the power of simplicity meets cutting-edge performance, durability and reliability.
