The Hawker Beechcraft King Air 250 made its public debut today at the Sun ‘’n’ Fun International Fly-In and Expo in Lakeland, Fla. The upgraded turboprop twin is part of the company’s largest-ever display at the annual gathering, which also features a Premier IA, King Air 350i, King Air C90GTx, Baron G58 and Bonanza G36. The show runs through Sunday. “Sun ‘’n’ Fun provides a great opportunity to launch a new year with excitement as we proudly debut our new King Air 250,” said Keith Nadolski, Beechcraft Americas president. “ We are looking forward to a great turnout and successful show.” Hawker Beechcraft unveiled the $5.79 million King Air 250, a replacement for the King Air 200GT, at the NBAA Convention in October. The King Air 250 incorporates three major changes over the 200GT: new Hartzell composite propellers, composite winglets and a ram-air recovery system to increase engine performance. These improvements give it better short-field and high-and-hot landing and takeoff capabilities. Deliveries of the King Air 250 are slated to start later this year.
