The Beechcraft King Air 250 was the culmination of decades of innovation and refinement, resulting in a versatile and energy-efficient aircraft ideal for short- and mid-range charters.

About this aircraft

  • The Beechcraft King Air 250 was introduced in 2010 as the latest iteration of the popular 200 series.
  • Its cabin is generally configured for up to six passengers, with an extra seat available in the semi-enclosed lavatory if required.
  • If the aircraft is owned, a further passenger can sit in the cockpit with a single pilot, however this isn’t possible with a charter.
  • According to Textron, the King Air 250 can fly non-stop from London to Athens or Houston to Seattle.
  • The King Air 250’s baggage hold is large enough for five suitcases and several items of hand luggage.
  • Production of the King Air 250 ended in 2020 as focus turned to the King Air 260.

With one of the quietest and comfiest cabins in the turboprop class combined with excellent performance and generous storage, the Beechcraft King Air 250 remains one of the world’s most popular private jets.

Interior design

The Beechcraft King Air 250’s cabin is typically configured with a four-seat club and two forward-facing rear seats. The semi-enclosed lavatory at the rear can be used as an extra passenger seat if required.

Cabin amenities include two stow-away work tables, a built-in refreshment centre, electronically dimmable windows and standard power outlets. Passengers can easily retrieve items during their flight from a fully accessible, heated and pressurised baggage area.

  • The aircraft can take off from short runways, with a low fully-loaded takeoff distance of just 2,111 feet.
  • Lighting is excellent thanks to large, round windows with polariser shades.
  • An enhanced payload option with a gross takeoff weight of 13,420 pounds allows the King Air 250 to operate in the commuter category, carrying five passengers with baggage and full fuel.
  • The cabin is renowned for feeling larger and more spacious than it is.
  • While it can’t compete with light jets for cruise speed and distance, the aircraft is significantly more cost-efficient for short flights.

Technological features

The Beechcraft King Air 250 is powered by twin Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-52 engines, with a top speed of 357 mph making it reasonably fast for a turboprop.

The cockpit is equipped with a Rockwell Collins ProLine Fusion flight deck geared towards single pilot operations.


The hugely popular King Air 200 series began with the 200, which debuted in 1974. It was continuously improved to develop the 200GTI, which featured more powerful engines and the Collins ProLine 21 avionics suite.

The King Air 250 was introduced in 2010 as the latest model in the line, combining the 200GTI’s Pratt & Whitney engines with the power section of the larger King Air 350’s engine. Inside, the aircraft was fitted with Rockwell Collins ProLine Fusion avionics and modern furnishings.

Production of the 250 continued until 2020, when Textron Aviation introduced the upgraded King Air 260 with new interiors and cabin amenities.


British aircraft manufacturer Hawker was co-founded by aviation pioneer Harry Hawker in 1920, later merging with engineering group Armstrong Siddeley to form Hawker Siddeley. The company’s famous Hawker Hurricane fighter plane formed a key part of Britain's front-line defence in the Battle of Britain during the Second World War.

The brand’s 125 series is among the most successful British commercial aircraft ever built. Initially developed by de Havilland as the DH.125 Jet Dragon, it entered production as the Hawker Siddeley HS.125 in 1964 and underwent several more reincarnations over the years; such as the Beechcraft Hawker BH.125 and the BAe 125, when Hawker Siddeley merged with the British Aircraft Corporation to form British Aerospace. Later variants included the Hawker 700 and Hawker 800.

British Aerospace sold its business jets division to Raytheon in 1993, which went on to sell its aircraft manufacturing business to Hawker Beechcraft, a company formed and controlled by GS Capital Partners and Onex Partners of Canada. Hawker Beechcraft went bankrupt in 2012 and relaunched as Beechcraft, now owned by Textron Aviation, which discontinued production of Hawker aircraft but continues to offer parts and engineering for existing planes.


Depending on factors like age and condition, a used Beechcraft King Air 250 can cost anywhere between $3.5 million and $5.5 million (USD).
