Hawker Beechcraft King Air B200

The Super King Air 200 had a greater wingspan, increased operating weights, increased fuel capacity and also introduced the venerable T-tail now seen on all larger King Air models. B200 features PT6A-42 engine and a bleed air system with increased cabin pressurization to 6.5 psi went into production in 1985 and remained an offering through 2007.

The King Air B200 is powered by a pair of Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-42 turboprop engines flat-rated at 850shp to ISA + 26C each driving a McCauley four-bladed, full-feathering, reversible and constant-speed propeller.

The King Air B200 instrument panel includes the two-tube Collins EFIS-84 with the attitude display positioned above the nav display and Collins APS-65H or the optional five-inch EFIS-85 and WXR-840 weather radar and EFS 74 nav display for the copilot's panel, dual Collins Pro Line II comm/nav/ident radios with DME and dual glideslope and Collins WXR-840 color weather radar.

The King Air B200 is a pressurized, twin-engine turboprop business aircraft configured as a cantilever low-wing monoplane with a T-tail and aft ventral fin. It has retractable tricycle landing gear with dual wheels on each unit. An airstair door is located aft of the wing on the port side of the fuselage. The 200 series King Air has the same fuselage as its predecessor the B100 but its longer wings, engines and many of its systems are new. To counter many operators' complaints, Raytheon engineers have taken measures to significantly reduce cabin noise levels in later model B200's from 1993 onwards by utilizing smaller diameter four-bladed props with lower tip speed in addition to thirty-two tuned dynamic vibration absorbers mounted at strategic points throughout the standard configuration of the King Air B200. It has a seating arrangement of 8 passengers with a club plus four individual seats. A ten-passenger configuration is available in which a two-place divan is located aft of the copilot seat, a single seat is behind the pilot's position, a four-seat club is aft of those seats and a lavatory seat with two fold-down seats occupy the aft cabin area. A large baggage area is located in the aft cabin area.
