Textron announced a utility nose option for the Beechcraft King Air 350 turboprop, delivering additional capability to the highly versatile platform. The new FAA-certified modification enables an additional 12 cubic feet of storage space for up to 250 pounds of additional payload. 

“This modification is a response to customer interest in optimizing the flexibility of our King Air 350 platform – equipping the aircraft with additional space for baggage or for special mission applications – and increasing loading configurations,” said Bob Gibbs, vice president, Defense & Special Missions Sales. “The Beechcraft King Air offers the widest range of mission capabilities of our broad product lineup, and we remain committed to continuously enhancing the platform to ensure our customers have the capability to succeed, no matter the mission.”  

With the utility nose option, operators now benefit from added storage space for equipment such as cameras and other sensors in surveillance configurations, or oxygen bottles and medical equipment for air ambulance operations. The upgrade can be installed on various configurations of the King Air 350, including the 350C cargo variant and 350ER extended range aircraft, and is also compatible with the PT6A-60A engines or PT6A-67A engines.
