Aircraft Model / Manufacturer :
Beechcraft 200 Super King Air
The Model 200 was originally conceived as the Model 101 in 1969, and was a development of the Model 100 King Air. The Model 200 had essentially the same fuselage as the Model 100, with changes to the rear fuselage to accommodate a new T-tail (in place of the 100's conventional tail with all-moving trimmable horizontal stabiliser) and structural changes to allow higher maximum pressurisation. Apart from the T-tail, other changes included Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-41 engines rated at 850 shp instead of the 680 shp engines of the Model A100 then in production, and a wing of increased span and extra fuel capacity.
