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) for Doppler and reflectivity studies at 95 GHz. Investigators can also use the aircraft to conduct initial airborne tests of new research instrumentation. Maximum flight altitude is initially 30,000 ft with altitudes up to 35,000 ft possible. Typical flight duration is four to five hours. A research crew of three can be accommodated.
