Turboprop platforms

Textron Aviation is a major player in the turboprop segment with more than 4,300 Beechcraft King Air and Cessna Caravan aircraft operating in the US. The King Air 350i and King Air 250 on display will feature the Pro Line Fusion avionics system. Also on display will be the Cessna Caravan EX, a platform engineered for challenging missions, high payloads and short, unimproved runways, while providing single-engine economy and simplicity.

Textron Aviation is continuing to progress with development of the new high-performance Cessna Denali single-engine turboprop. Since unveiling the Denali last year, program engineers have begun fabrication of the first static and fatigue test articles.
