Part of the most popular family of turboprops ever made, the Beechcraft King Air 200 excels in all environments and is a versatile aircraft for leisure, business and cargo charters.

About this aircraft

  • The Beechcraft King Air 200 was first delivered in 1974.
  • It’s designed to fly six or seven people (with an extra passenger seated in the enclosed lavatory if required) on short journeys like San Francisco to San Diego and London to Nice.
  • The hold has enough space for four suitcases and two items of hand luggage.
  • Beechcraft has released several upgrades and variants, including the B200 and B200GT.

The King Air 200 is part of a series that falls into four families: Model 90, Model 100, Model 200 and Model 300. Its noise-reduced cabin, speed, space and cost-efficiency make it a great charter option for reaching small or remote airfields that larger aircraft can’t access.

Interior design

The King Air 200’s spacious interior is commonly fitted with up to seven seats, including one in the enclosed lavatory. The squared-oval cabin can also be configured with a club four, single chair and two-seat divan. The rear cabin door is equipped with an airstair.

Below are typical configurations found on a Beechcraft King Air 200.

Interesting facts to learn before you fly

  • While a jet can likely get you to your destination faster, a King Air 200 turboprop is usually more economical.
  • It isn’t banned from certain noise-sensitive airports and can be flown by a single pilot, resulting in lower operational costs than a two-pilot private jet.
  • The King Air 200 is a “go anywhere, go anytime” aircraft that’s certificated to fly into known icing conditions.
  • With over 1,800 produced, it’s usually readily available to charter or purchase.

Technological features

The Beechcraft King Air 200 was a development of the Model 100 King Air, featuring the same fuselage but with a new T-tail, Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-41 engines, increased wingspan and extra fuel capacity.

The upgraded King Air B200 featured more powerful PT6A-42 engines, making it faster and significantly cheaper to operate.

Beechcraft introduced the B200GT in 2008, upgrading to PT6A-52 engines for a higher cruise speed, better runway performance and superior handling of hot and high conditions. Both aircraft can operate at a maximum of 35,000 feet, however the B200GT continues full-power at altitudes in the high 20s, while the B200’s cruise speed tops out in the high teens.


Conceived as Model 101 in 1969, Model 200 was a development of the Model 100 King Air. The 200 received civil certification in 1973 and was first delivered the following year.

Model 200C was created in 1979 with a large cargo door, leading many operators to fit it out as an air ambulance. In 1981, Beechcraft launched a modified Model 200CT with the same wingtip fuel tanks as the Model 200T. Only one was created, which led to the Model B200 entering production that same year.

In 1995, Beechcraft developed the B200SE Super King Air with electronic flight instrument system avionics. Other variants of the B200 include the B200T, B200C and B200GT. The latter was announced in 2007 with new PT6A-52 engines for higher altitudes.


Headquartered in Kansas, American aircraft brand Beechcraft was originally part of Beech Aircraft Corporation. It later became a division of Raytheon and then Hawker Beechcraft, which built Beechcraft/Hawker business jets from 2006 to 2013.

After going bankrupt in 2012, the company emerged as Beechcraft Corporation and was acquired by Textron Aviation in 2014. Beechcraft discontinued the jet line but still offers parts and engineering support for existing aircraft.


The cost of buying a King Air 200 is $725,000-$800,000 (USD). This is significantly less than competing jets like the Pilatus PC-12, which can cost as much as $2.2 million.
