CenTex Aerospace, Inc. announces installation of two Halo 250 increased gross weight conversions at Hawker Beechcraft Services

Waco, Texas, – March 12, 2015 – CenTex Aerospace, Inc. announces sales of two Halo 250 increased gross weight conversion kits.  The kits are for a King Air B200GT and a King Air 250, with installation being performed at Hawker Beechcraft Services in Wichita, Ks and Wilmington, DE

The Halo 250 conversion allows any King Air 200 series airplane to carry up to 920 pounds more payload by increasing the maximum takeoff weight from 12,500 to 13,420 pounds. A new Airplane Flight Manual supplement is included with performance data for planning the takeoff flight path to 1,500 feet AGL and the landing approach flight path in normal and icing conditions.

It also adds five new safety systems that make the King Air 200 safer to operate. The new safety systems provide improved stall warning in icing conditions, aural over-speed and elevator out-of-trim warnings, engine fire extinguisher capability, and emergency lighting in the cabin.

The HALO 250 conversion is compatible with Proline 21 and G1000 avionics and most of the other popular King Air 200 modifications.  To learn more about the Halo 250 conversion visit www.centex.aero

King Air 200 Airplanes already in service can be converted at  Hawker Beechcraft Service Centers and any of the other CenTex Aerospace dealers can provide sales and installation of the conversion.  Also, Beechcraft is offering the Halo 250 conversion as a factory option on all new King Air 250s.  Installation of the conversion will be conducted at the factory.
