The Kestrel 350: Features


Everything You Need For Your Mission.

The Kestrel all-composite single-engine, turboprop aircraft will carry up to 8 people at high speed over long distances to places that jets simply can’t go. It will be far more versatile, burn less fuel, and be able to maintain approach speeds at large busy airports yet land on short, grass or gravel strips—so you arrive at your destination faster.

Fly the Kestrel


Kestrel Standard Features

All of the below features come standard with your Kestrel purchase:

Avionics

The Kestrel will use the next-generation Garmin G3000 avionics suite. With two, or optimally three 14-inch screens, and two touchscreen controllers, this intuitive system will make flying safe and easy. The fully integrated auto-pilot incorporates Garmin’s Electronic-Stability & Protection system, and a stick pusher for maximum safety.


Up there, “Easy” changes everything

The Kestrel will be an exceptionally easy plane to fly, with superior handling characteristics and responsiveness, even at low speeds. It will easily climb efficiently at more than 2,250 ft/min to a maximum altitude of 31,000 feet, and cruise at greater than 320 kts. The flight deck offers heightened visibility, well-planned ergonomics, side-yoke control, and aviator-friendly avionics.


Ice Protection System

The Cox and Company Electro-Mechanical Expulsion Deicing System (EMEDS) is one of the most sophisticated low-power ice protection systems on the market and featured in the Kestrel. EMEDS removes ice by exciting electrical actuators installed under the leading edge of airfoils. The system components are mounted inside the leading edge, so they are not subjected to atmospheric and environmental hazards. This also produces lower aerodynamic drag and reduces fuel consumption. Additionally, there is nothing to service or replace. EMEDS has been implemented on hundreds of aircraft, and is FAA/EASA FIKI certified.


Composite Versatility

The Kestrel’s sleek, aerodynamic lines and large pressurized cabin are the direct result of advanced composite construction. Composites, with their high strength and design versatility have enabled more elegant, innovative airframes and more spacious, comfortable interiors.


Passenger-Friendly Design

Wide aisles, surprisingly large windows, more room everywhere; the Kestrel is a revelation to those expecting 'general aviation' compromises. Passengers ascend through a wide door into an inviting, pleasing interior, generously appointed in natural materials.


Versatile and Efficient

The Kestrel interior will be quickly reconfigurable from weekday business to weekend sport or leisure use, accommodating any combination of passengers and cargo with a full fuel payload of 1,200 lbs. A lavatory will be an option.


Takeoffs and Landings

The trailing-link landing gear and oversized tires ensure that every landing is smooth—even those on short, unpaved strips.
