BEECHCRAFT | B300 | KING AIR 350i (2008-PRESENT)
BRIEF HISTORY – SUPER KING AIR 350i
The Beechcraft Super King Air series of aircraft is part of the company’s series of twin-turboprop aircraft. The Model 200 originally began in 1969 as the Model 101, a development of the Model 100 King Air. The Model 200 retained the majority of the Model 100’s fuselage, with modifications to the rear fuselage to fit a new T-tail and structural modifications to allow for increased maximum pressurization. The 200 was certified for civil use in December 1973, with the first civil delivery in February of 1974.The 200 series was so successful that Beechcraft began construction on a successor, designated the Model 300 by Beechcraft and marketed in the 90’s as the “Super King Air 300.” The airframe of the B200 was “cleaned up,” and more powerful engines were put in modified cowlings (dubbed “pitot cowlings” owing to their curved engine air intakes), resulting in a considerably enhanced MTOW. The prototype Model 300 flew for the first time on September 3, 1983, and deliveries began the following year in 1984.Beechcraft began searching for the replacement for the 300 in 1988, so they got to work by lengthening the fuselage about three feet, adding two cabin windows on each side, and adding winglets to create the B300, which is now known as the King Air 350. In 1990, the now known King Air 350 was introduced as the Super King Air 350. Along with the fuselage modifications, the 350 received an increased MTOW: 15,000 lb. In 1996, the “super” would be dropped and continued production to this day. In 2005, Beechcraft announced at the Paris Air Show an extended range variant the King Air 350ER that provides increased range. On November 11th, 2007 the King Air 350ER was certified by the FAA.Beechcraft unveiled updated variants of the B300 series, the King Air 350i, in October 2008, with improved passenger cabins. The first deliveries began in December 2009. Beechcraft introduced the updated variants of the B300, the King Air 360 and 360ER in August of 2020. The 360 and 360ER variants were FAA type certified in October 2020, while the European Aviation Safety Agency certified them earlier in September 2021. Deliveries started in late 2021.
CABIN COMFORTS – King Air 350i
Beechcraft equipped every King Air 350i with the UltraQuiet active noise cancellation technology as standard as well as a more powerful cabin pressure system to decrease cabin altitude when at higher altitudes. With considerable physical soundproofing and unique noise-cancelling technology installed, talks in the cabin become effortless while in flight. Additionally, the reduced cabin noise and cabin altitude will leave you feeling far more refreshed than in prior versions. The cabin of the King Air 350i has spacious executive seats, fold-down tables, USB charging stations, and power outlets. All of this is conveniently located from the comfort of your big seat. When combined with the low cabin pressure of 5,960 feet at a height of 35,000 feet, these factors provide a wonderfully quiet and invigorating environment.What continues to sell the 350i is its spacious cabin, which offers more shoulder space than a conventional light jet due to its “squared oval” shape. The roughly 20-foot-long interior is four and a half feet wide by nearly five feet tall—not quite stand-up, but also not cramped when you are seated. The cabin is illuminated by fourteen big oval windows, some of which are electrically dimmable on newer versions. The propellers are positioned more front and the engines are positioned further outboard than on smaller King Airs. Combining this with a tuning-fork anti-noise system significantly minimizes engine and propeller noise and vibration that enter the cabin. You will not mistake flying in a 350 for flying in a jet, but it will not shake, rattle, and roll.Additionally, passengers will benefit from an integrated refreshment center, lighted cup holders, and a fully enclosed aft cabin with a hard door. The aircraft may be supplied with WiFi as an option to guarantee that you remain connected at all times.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE – KING AIR 350i
Two wing-mounted Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-6OA engines power the King Air 360. Each engine can produce up to 1,050 horsepower (Shaft Horsepower). Hartzell manufactures the propellers which include four-aluminum blades with constant-speed and automatic feathering.The 360 can take off on a 3,300-foot runway and land at 2,692 feet. Additionally, the aircraft can cruise for a maximum distance of 1,806 nautical miles without refueling. The aircraft can cruise at a maximum speed of 312 knots and a maximum height of 35,000 feet with an impressively low cabin altitude of 5,960 ft.
FLIGHT DECK – KING AIR 350i
In its simplicity, the King Air 360 cockpit is stunning. Pro Line Fusion avionics are included with the aircraft. This advanced yet simple avionics suite streamlines how the pilots aviate, communicate, and navigate. IS&S ThrustSense Auto-throttle features decrease pilot workload by providing precise control for efficient power output. Digital pressurization sets cabin pressures automatically throughout both ascent and descent, enhancing passenger comfort and minimizing pilot workload even more. Additionally, the Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion interface streamlines flight display setup. Using fingertip touches and swipes, flight information may be swiftly arranged.
