Welcome to the University of Wyoming King Air Research Aircraft Page

The University of Wyoming King Air (UWKA) research aircraft supports a large variety of instrumentation, and is configurable for measurements of cloud properties, air motion, turbulence and fluxes, atmospheric chemistry and aerosols. A research crew of three to four can typically be accomodated with an approximate four hour flight endurance and a maximum flight level of 28,000 ft. The UWKA has a payload capacity of up to 1,650 lbs, supporting the suite of instrumentation maintained by the UW Research Flight Center as well as user-supplied equipment. The UWKA is commonly configured to accomodate the University of Wyoming Cloud Radar (WCR) and University of Wyoming Lidar (WCL) systems.
