Aircraft Overview

The Beechcraft King Air series has its roots in the 1951 Twin Bonanza. That aircraft model was enlarged and re-engined to become the Model 65 Queen Air. The Queen Air design changed to incorporate a swept tail and pressurization. With the addition of Pratt & Whitney turboprop engines, the Queen Air became the Model 90 King Air. The King Air 90 led to the stretched King Air 100, which in turn had a T-Tail added to become the King Air 200. The Beechcraft 1900 regional airliner was derived from the B200 King Air.

The original King Air 200 was certified in 1973 , the current models of the 200 are the B200, B200SE, and, with the addition of a 52-inch square cargo door, the B200C and B200CSE. The 200 series is one of the most popular turbine aircraft ever, with nearly 2,000 built. Pratt & Whitney PT6A-41’s power the early Model 200, PT6A-42 power the B200 series. Earlier 200’s have electrically operated gear, the B200 has hydraulic gear.

The Beechcraft B200 model variants are utilised worldwide by government, military, air ambulance, charter, RPT and special mission operations such as aerial survey, flight inspection and surveillance.

The B200 has a range of 1,164 (2,155 km), speed of 290 kts (537 km/hr), a maximum operating altitude of 35,000 ft, MTOW 12,500 lbs (5,670 kg), powered by two Pratt & Whitney PT6A-42 turboprop engines and fitted with Collins Pro Line 21 avionics
