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 Beechcraft King Air 350 is the flagship model of Beech King Air family aircraft featuring the most spacious cabin and baggage area. It is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-60A engines each developing 1,050-shp and driving a four-blade Hartzell propeller. In October 2003, Raytheon Aircraft provided Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite to King Air 350 as standard equipment. The King Air 350ER is an extended range special mission aircraft unveiled at the Paris Air Show 2005. The first model 350 aircraft entered service in 1989 with more than 500 (the 500th was delivered in October 2006) airplanes delivered since.

The Japan Ground Self-Defense Force (JGSDF) LR-2 is a reconnaissance aircraft based on the King Air 350 turboprop. The LR-2 is the successor to the LR-1 in the JGSDF fixed-wing aircraft fleet.
