Technological features

The King Air 100 series is equipped with a Collins avionics suite as standard, giving the aircraft easier access to a wide range of airports.

The A100 upgrade is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-28 turboprop engines and comes with dual King Gold Crown avionics and a RCA AVQ-47 weather radar.

The King Air B100 has two Garrett TPE 331-6-252B turboprop engines driving Hartzell propellers. Standard equipment includes Collins radios and dual VHF 20 comms, dual VIR 30 navs, Collins ADF 60A, dual Collins TDR 90 transponders, a Sperry SPZ 200A flight director/autopilot system, and a Sperry Primus 300 CLR weather radar.


King Air 100 entered the market in 1969 following the success of the King Air 90. It was the first stretched King Air, with a cabin four feet longer than its predecessor. This, along with its larger wings, allowed for more seats inside the interior. The original King Air 100 had three-blade propellers and a maximum takeoff weight of 10,600 lbs.

The A100 replaced the 100 in 1971, with a four-blade propeller, increased fuel capacity and a greater maximum takeoff weight. To keep up with demand for the newly released King Air 200, A100s were upgraded to B100s and delivered over an eight-year period from 1976 to 1983 with a slightly faster cruise speed and more powerful engines.


Headquartered in Kansas, American aircraft brand Beechcraft was originally part of Beech Aircraft Corporation. It later became a division of Raytheon and then Hawker Beechcraft, which built Beechcraft/Hawker business jets from 2006 to 2013.

After going bankrupt in 2012, the company emerged as Beechcraft Corporation and was acquired by Textron Aviation in 2014. Beechcraft discontinued the jet line but still offers parts and engineering support for existing aircraft.


King Air B100 costs up to $600,000 (USD). This is significantly less than competing jets like the King Air 200 and Pilatus PC-12, which can cost as much as $2.2 million.
