Brazil’s Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil (ANAC) has approved CenTex Aerospace’s Halo 250 conversion for the Beechcraft King Air 200 series. It allows any King Air 200 to carry up to 920 pounds more payload by increasing the maximum takeoff weight to 13,420 pounds from 12,500 pounds. A new Airplane Flight Manual supplement has performance data for takeoff flight path to 1,500 feet agl and the landing approach flight path in normal and icing conditions. The conversion includes improved stall warning in icing conditions, aural overspeed and elevator-out-of-trim warnings, engine fire extinguisher capability, emergency cabin lighting and illuminated escape-path floor markings.
