Hawker Beechcraft’s King Air 250 made its public debut last month at the Sun ’n’ Fun International Fly-In in Lakeland, Fla. The $5.79 million turboprop twin, a replacement for the King Air 200GT, was unveiled at the NBAA Convention in October. The King Air 250 incorporates three major changes over the 200GT: new Hartzell composite propellers, BLR Aerospace composite winglets and a Raisbeck ram-air recovery system to increase engine performance. Deliveries of the King Air 250 are slated to start later this year.
