More about the King Air 350i
The King Air 350 is a stretched version of the 300 model and by extension, a derivative of the original B200 model. The original 350 was certified in 1990, with the 350ER certified in 2007, and finally the 350i certified in 2010. The evolution from the 200 series to the 300 and in turn, the 350 model is a result of Beechcraft's willingness to continually build upon their previous successes. With each new model improving upon its predecessor while laying the foundation for its descendents, the prestigious manufacturer has found a consistent formula for success. During the development of the 350, the 300 model was stretched nearly three feet, which allowed for four extra cabin windows and additional cabin capacity, among other significant improvements including a state-of-the-art noise-canceling system. Today the King Air 350 is available in several different versions including the prominent 350ER and 350i variants. These designations indicate significant changes to the performance characteristics and passenger cabin and of the aircraft.
Key Features of the King Air 350i
The King Air 350 has respectable cabin dimensions of 19' 6" length, 4' 6" width, and 4' 9" height. Twin P&WC PT6A-60 engines with 1,050 shaft horsepower each allow for a maximum range of 1,765 nautical miles and a maximum cruising speed of 312 ktas. These performance characteristics make the 350 an excellent transcontinental option for those who are looking for economical, flexible, and dynamic private travel solutions. Although the aircraft is capable of carrying up to eleven passengers in a high-density seating configuration, the 350 is optimized for comfort when carrying nine or fewer passengers. The aircraft can be flown by either one or two pilots increasing its versatility even further. With Beechcraft now taking orders for Garmin G1000 fully integrated flight instrument installations, the operating experience will be even more comfortable, especially in single pilot missions. In short, the King Air 350 is a time-tested twin-engine turboprop from a prestigious and reliable manufacturer. With its wide variety of variants and customizable features, it's ideal for most transcontinental missions.
Capabilities of the King Air 350i
With the announcement of the King Air 350ER version of the B300 in 2005, many significant improvements were soon to become available. The variant was mainly a performance upgrade, which included a noticeable increase in maximum takeoff weight, additional equipment capabilities, superior landing gear, extra fuel storage, and additional range. In 2008, the newer 350i version was announced, which focused on improvements to the passenger cabin. Improving interior cabin atmosphere in many noticeable ways, the 350i featured reduced overall noise level, upgraded comfort features, and advanced digital control panels utilized to adjust LED lighting, window shade, and multimedia devices. Supplemented by the newly added support for USB devices, the inclusion of AC power sources, and folding tables, the 350i became a very attractive option for private travelers by offering additional comfort, productivity, and digital control. As a result, the model is ideal for business and recreation travelers alike.
