Best of the Best 2012: Business Aircraft: Business Turboprop: Hawker Beechcraft King Air 350i and 250

  • Hawker Beechcraft King Air 350i

Practicality, performance, and comfort are trademarks of the Hawker Beechcraft King Air 350i and 250 (316.676.5034, www.hawkerbeechcraft.com) turboprops. The $7 million twin-engine 350i is at the top of the 48-year-old King Air line—the all-time best-selling private-aircraft line. With a seating capacity of 11 passengers, a range approaching 2,000 miles, a cruise speed of about 360 mph, and a fuel burn of just 100 gallons per hour, the 350i is a wise choice for regional flights. The $6 million King Air 250 seats as many as 10 passengers and can travel almost 1,850 miles at a cruise speed close to that of its larger sibling.
