Description: The Beechcraft King Air is a twin-engine turboprop aircraft family intended for passenger and cargo transport and special missions introduced by Beech Aircraft Corporation in 1964. The first model Beech King Air 90 was widely used as a corporate jetprop. In 1974, Beech delivered the first King Air 200 bringing new standards of room, speed, and passenger comfort to a business airplane. In February 1980, Beech became a subsidiary to Raytheon. In 1984, Raytheon Beech introduced the King Air 300 which offers improvement in speed, performance, and cabin amenities over its predecessors.

In October 1989, Beech adds the King Air 350 to its turboprop product line with a wider wing span, double-club seating and two-foot-high winglets. The 350 becomes the most comfortable and capable King Air ever built. In mid-September of 1994, Beech Aircraft and Raytheon Corporate Jets merge to form Raytheon Aircraft. On March 26, 2007, Raytheon Aircraft Company became Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC). So far, more than 6,000 Beechcraft King Airs have been ordered by customers worldwide in more than 20 versions over the past 40+ years.

The King Air 200, also known as Super King Air 200, is a twin-engine turboprop featuring an stretched fuselage over model 90 and available for both civilian and military customers. In October 2003, Raytheon Aircraft provided Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite to King Air B200 as standard equipment. As of early 2008, the production model King Air B200GT is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-52 engines. The new powerplant delivers higher cruise speeds and faster climb times. The 200 model aircraft first flew in October 1972 and entered service in 1974 with more than 2,000 airplanes delivered since.

The King Air 200 used as military transport aircraft are known as C-12 within the United States Armed Forces. The C-12 was introduced in 1975 being deployed by the US Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. The US Navy also uses Beech T-34C jetprop trainers for primary flight training. The US Army RC-12 Guardrail is used for intercepting enemy radio transmissions and is scheduled for replacement by the Aerial Common Sensor (ACS). The King Air B200T is a version used for maritime patrol that can be equipped with search radar, ESM, bubble observation windows, GPS, FLIR, sonobuoys, navigation computer, and auxiliary tanks.
