Hawker Beechcraft announced the new, more powerful King Air B200GT was certified by the Federal Aviation Administration. This model is the latest evolution of the popular twin-turbine Beechcraft King Air 200 series.
Hawker Beechcraft Corporation unveiled the Beechcraft King Air B200GT at the EBACE in May. Featuring a 305-knot max cruise speed, the upgraded Beechcraft King Air B200GT enjoys a nearly 20-knot speed increase and climbs faster to its intended cruising altitudes than the King Air B200 it replaces.
The manufacturer expects international certifications with EASA, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, India, Argentina and Guatemala will be completed by the end of the year.
