In production between 2011 up until the end of 2020, when Beechcraft replaced it with the King Air 260, the King Air 250 derives from a family of aircraft that has been in production since the early 1970s. Helping it deliver its prized performance characteristics is a pair of Pratt & Whitney PT6A-52 engines.
