Why would this be good for IF?
To ultimately increase or enhance the GA fleet in IF. The main focus of the app has been large commercial or military aircraft and I believe there is large enough demand in the community to expand the GA fleet.

With the addition of the TBM930 last year, the IF developers seem to be pivoting toward the GA fleet for enhancement and or expansion and I offer the King Air 250 as a potential candidate. Primarily for the reason that the sim doesn’t have a GA dual engine turboprop aircraft.

Why the King Air 250?
Before putting this together I looked through past requests for Beechcraft aircraft. There was a recent feature request for the King Air 350i by DeerCrusher which received a fair amount of votes. So I hope to follow on to that request to further the expansion of the GA fleet with the King Air 250.

Based on the numbers, the 250 is comparable to the TBM930 but it would be the first dual engine turboprop for the sim - which would likely become a quick favorite for all of the GA pilots in the sim.

Really good idea. Nicely made topic too. It would be a really handy little aircraft, relating with the TBM-930 that has Ben recently put in the game. Once again it’s a really nice idea. Having to visually see the luxury cabin inside would be great too. 👍

-I do not have votes left though. :I

Thanks for the support. If you get any votes available please support the 250 or the 350i. Both, would be great additions to the sim!
