Hawker Beechcraft King Air 3501

    The King Air 350i is a contemporary interpretation of a classic light twin. The updated, pressurized cabin features networked widescreen high-definition monitors, digital on-demand audio, LED task lighting, and power ports at each seat. Built-in integration supports optional satellite radio and media devices such as iPods. The cabin furnishings are designed for flexibility, with seats that can easily be removed or reconfigured. An updated forward refreshment center and private lavatory provide comfort for longer flights. The cabin’s squared-oval shape creates extra shoulder room, and sound levels in the cabin are low. Powerful performance, versatility, and economical costs per passenger mile contribute to a competitive bottom line.
