The king air is very good aircraft. One of my favorites on flight sim. It wouldn't surprise me if they put them on longer legs.

Must be empty or have some kind of ER package?

I looked at the Raytheon site too... some good tail winds and a very light load?

Right now at 282 kts/ 325 mph at FL350

The other week, the FBO i work for farmed out a charter for a local multi-millionaire, UES to LAS on a KA 350. (Waukesha, WI to Vegas [1306.5nm]) I found it strange because the guy normally flies Ciations or Lears with the falcon 10 as his best preference.

... and he's diverting to MLI. Apparently couldn't make it, planned a stop at DPA, and realized he wouldn't even make it that far.

Uh oh, looks like a stop is being made at MLI. Guess the Beechcraft site is more accurate than a.net, then again, they could be stopping for multiple reasons?

I believe the 350 has a toilet in it.

Yes, but not for the pilot.

Our company has a two year old King Air 350 that I fly on regularly (flew Sacramento > San Diego last night). It truly is a phenomenal plane and I really enjoy flying on it. The company owner was on the plane with me last night and I asked if he was happy with the purchase. He said he would do it all over again, and that he prefers it much more to flying on the majority of Exec. Jets.

FYI we flew at FLT300 last night. Pretty damn high for a prop plane if you ask me!

The 350 truly is an amazing aircraft and there are damn few, outside of the PC-12, that are even in it's league. In most cases, if you put a person in every seat (pending on the size of the person of course  cheeky  ) with full fuel, you'd still be under MTOW. 350 pilots love that flexibility and it's something that damn few other aircraft can even dream of doing.

I don't think there is a sign on the door that says the Pilot cannot use the toilet...unless of course they are flying it single-pilot, but if i recall correctly there aren't many operators who use it that way.



Do you like movies about gladiators?

If it saved me a 30 minute stop and a few hundred pounds of fuel, I think I'd let the pilot use the can in the plane.

Not to mention how much more comfortable the oval fuselage is versus the competitions round cabin. Better headroom, more comfortable, quieter. Just an awesome plane. Our pilots always rave about how overpowered the plane is. Take off rolls when there are only a few of us are truly awesome.

Unfortunately I am leaving the company end of this year so no more flying on their 350...fortunately the new company uses a 350 too.  Smile
