T-Tail Aerodynamics of the Super King Air 740370

The Super King Air Model 200 is Beech Aircraft's latest entry into the executive turboprop airplane market. Principal design features include a T-tail empennage and 850 SHP PT6A-41 powerplants widely spaced on a high-aspect-ratio wing. This paper presents a discussion of the preliminary studies of the T-tail and the results of preliminary wind tunnel tests. The rationale and design philosophy for satisfactory stall characteristics are discussed; and the development wind tunnel tests, the flight simulator tests, and the development flight-test program are reviewed.
