The announcement of this latest addition to the King Air 200 series was made during the NBAA’s Virtual Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition.
The design factor of this luxury aircraft blends with the platform’s reliability with key enhancements to the cockpit such as Beechcraft’s IS&S innovative Thrust Sense Autothrottle, along with a new digital pressurization controller.
