The Beechcraft King Air 260.
Textron's Beechcraft King Air 360/360ER and King Air 260 have achieved EASA type certification.
"EASA certification begins a whole new era for the Beechcraft King Air in Europe," says Tom Perry, vice president of Sales for Europe, Middle East and Africa. "The King Air has been the turboprop of choice throughout this region for more than five decades, and the new 260 and 360 will build on that legendary reputation. We have incorporated innovative and next generation technologies that enhance the flying experience for an already proven aircraft."
King Air turboprops have been a popular choice in Europe with more than 460 aircraft throughout the region. Nearly half of all King Airs in Europe are owned and operated in France, Germany and the United Kingdom.
A King Air 360 flight with four passengers and a single pilot has a maximum range of around 3,345km, allowing it to complete flights such as London to Athens or Frankfurt to Moscow without stopping to refuel. Similarly, the King Air 260 has a maximum range of 3,185km, allowing four passengers and a single pilot to take complete flights such as Rome to Madrid or Paris to Stockholm without refuelling.
