Beechcraft King Air 100
The Beechcraft King Air 100 is a twin turboprop light transport that was launched in 1969. At the time, it’s predecessor, the Beechcraft King Air Model 90 series, was proving to be a highly successful and popular turboprop airplane for both military and civilian mission needs. Developed purely for the corporate market, the King Air 100 is a stretched version of the Model 90.
The longer King Air 100 features five cabin windows instead of the three on the Model 90 and increased seating capacity for an additional 3-4 passengers. In addition to the lengthened cabin, the engines on the Model 100 were upgraded from the Model 90 giving the larger aircraft additional payload capacity without compromising cruising speed, take-off field length, or range. Additionally, the four-bladed propellers (instead of the three on previous King Air models) results in a significant reduction in the noise levels experienced in the cabin.

The King Air 100 is powered by two Garrett TPE331-6-252Bs rated at 715shp “Shaft horsepower” or 533kW driving three blade propellers.
