More about the King Air B100
The Beechcraft Corporation began deliveries of the King Air A100 in October of 1972. This model featured four-bladed propellers, which contributed to a significant cabin noise reduction. Due to a strike at Pratt & Whitney that disrupted the delivery of the engines utilized on the A100 model, Beechcraft decided to go with the Garrett TPE331 series engine for the King Air B100 model. The King Air B100 first flew in March of 1975, and the first customer deliveries occurred in 1976.
Production on the King Air B100 started in 1976 and ended in 1993. 135 aircraft have been built so far.
