To maximize passenger comfort and reduce jetlag, the Denali’s cabin is pressurized at a low altitude (1868 m). The aircraft’s cabin also features large windows, spacious executive seating, an easily accessible baggage compartment, a forward refreshment center, and an optional externally serviceable belt lavatory.
The Beechcraft Denali has a four-passenger range of 1’600 nm, equivalent to 2’963 km. The aircraft’s maximum cruising speed is 519 km per hour. It can cruise at a maximum sealing of 9’449 m.
General Electric’s innovative Catalyst turboprop provides thrust for the Beechcraft Denali. Manufactured using modern materials and production techniques, General Electric’s Catalyst engine is significantly lighter, 20% more fuel-efficient, and 10% powerful than conventional turboprops.
The Denali’s flight deck features the sleek and advanced touch-screen controlled Garmin G3000 avionics system, specially designed for light turbine jets.
