The King Air B200 belongs to the venerable family of King Air twin-turboprop utility aircraft built by Beechcraft beginning in 1964. It is also the most successful member of that family as far as production numbers is concerned. Of the more than 6,600 King Air variants in use around the world, nearly half are B200s fulfilling vital roles as civil and government transport planes.
The King Air B200 is essentially an improved version of another ubiquitous member of the Beechcraft King Air family, the King Air 100. The most noticeable difference is the T-tail configuration wherein the horizontal stabilizer is positioned at the top part of the vertical stabilizer. Among other things, this helps ensure greater control of the aircraft even at low speeds—an especially important characteristic when it comes to landing. Partly because of this, the B200 can also land on (as well as take off from) the short runways typical of outlying municipal airports. If your group’s destination is an area with such an airport, the B200 is the aircraft you need.
