The 200 is part of the Beechcraft King Air range, slotting in between the King Air 100 and the King Air 300 models. The 200 began life on the design board in 1970, modelled in the main on the 100, but with more powerful engines, increased fuel capacity, increased wingspan size and a T-tail. It gained certification in December 1973.
The B200 was introduced in 1981, with the addition of more powerful engines and cockpit modifications. Other variants followed and in 2007 the company announced its newest addition, the King Air B200GT, with further improved engines.
