Keep Your Cool.
Stay cool on the tarmac and enjoy a more comfortable flight.

Beating the heat is easier when you don’t have to wait to be airborne for air conditioning. With King Air Ground Cooling installed on your BEECHCRAFT KING AIR 200/300 series turboprop, you can provide cooling into the cabin simply by plugging in a Ground Power Unit (GPU). It’s the smartest solution to keeping your aircraft comfortable while still on the tarmac or even before you get to the hangar.

Available exclusively through Textron Aviation Service Centers.
