The University of Wyoming Raytheon Beech King Air 2001 twin-engine turboprop can be configured for measurements of cloud properties, air motion, turbulence and fluxes, air-sea interactions, atmospheric chemistry, and aerosols. It can accommodate the Wyoming Cloud Radar (WCR) and the Wyoming Cloud Lidar (WCL). Investigators can also use the aircraft to conduct initial airborne tests of new research instrumentation. The maximum flight altitude is initially 30,000 ft, with altitudes up to 35,000 ft possible. The typical flight duration is four to five hours. A research crew of three can be accommodated.
