University King Airs

Texas A&M University System brought both of their King Air B200s to Murmer Aircraft Services for complete refurbishment including new paint, interior and avionics.

Our team began by removing the interior including the seats, headliner, side panels, carpet and cabinets. Also removed were the instrument panel and all of the old avionics and wiring. Externally, we stripped off the 21 year-old paint, cleaned up the airframe and repaired all the minor dents and dings.

A new panel was built around a Garmin G1000 with three 12” displays and a new GFC700 autopilot. Weather avoidance systems included a GDL-69 for XM weather, an L3 Stormscope and a new GWX-68 on board radar. An L3 Skywatch traffic system was also installed along with dual GTX-33 transponders.

Meanwhile at the interior shop, new ComforFoam cushions were fabricated and installed on the cabin and crew seats. The cabin seats were redesigned and recovered with top-grain leather and the crew seats with sheep skin. The headliner and side panels were covered with ultra-leather and new wool carpeting was installed. The cabinetry was relaminated and the wood trim was refinished.

A new high-gloss exterior finish was applied featuring a Beechcraft factory paint scheme with Aggie Maroon stripes.

Texas A&M now flys two completely updated King Air with all the capability and comfort of a new airplane at a fraction of new airplane cost.

Thanks to our partners Temple Electronics and Aero Plus Interiors for their outstanding work on this airplane.
