Yeap, same type. Sorry for the confusion.minitour said:Which are the same type, correct?
BE200Driver said:not sure which model 90 you are asking about but in the 200 we see 800lbs/hour down low and 600-650 at the higher altitudes. It can get better but we never get out of the low 20's.
the E90 at max cruise power @10,000 will brun about 700/hour. Up in the low 20's 450-500/hour.
The 300 has a MTOW of 14,000 vs the 200's 12,500
cvsfly said:I agree. Our B200 (PT6-42 = 850 shp) operates 350 hrs Block/310 Flight (Hobbs) per year. Average 1.4 Block/leg, 1.2 Flight/leg and 98 gal/Block Hour at 6.7 lbs/gal = 656 lbs/hr. Mix of legs as short as 50 nm and up to 900 nm, average 276 nm/leg and altitudes 5000 to FL 270, probably averaging FL 220 - 230. We run at 750 ITT or 2050 ft-lbs and 270 (summer)-275 KTAS (winter) (based in the South) at altitude. Training notes I have put a C-90 (PT6A-21= 550 shp) at 500# 1st hr, 400# 2nd hr if above FL180 and a 200 (PT6-41= 850 shp) at 700# 1st hr, 600 # after if above FL220.

I've also heard they're similar to the Beech 1900...any authoritative sources out there care to chime in?
I've been choked up about the 40 gal/hour block fuel flows I've been burning in my 340, since trading up from a Bonanza.
I know you can't really compare the two like apples to apples, but out of curiosity....what kind of airspeeds are you getting out of the E90 and 200 while in the low 20's?
