My Bird – The King Air (B200)

I have a few folks asking about the plane I now fly so I thought I would post a few details about the King Air (B200).

  • Type: turbo propeller
  • Engines: Pratt & Whitney (PT6A-42)
  • Horsepower: 850 shp
  • Max weight: 12,500 lbs
  • Fuel: 549 gallons
  • Passengers: 6-9 (depending on seating configuration)
  • Typical cruise speed: 230 kts (425 km/hr)
  • Typical cruise altitude: 20,000-25,000 ft
  • Max range: 3000 km
  • Avionics: G400

The King Air is a very versatile aircraft able to take off and land on short runways paved, grass and gravel. Technically endorsed as a single pilot aircraft, the plane is really well crewed with both a captain and a first officer and is a great platform to grow my skills.
