"Quiet Cabin" Noise Control

The King Air 350i features several dynamic vibration absorbers mounted throughout the cabin and flight deck, with each one specifically tuned to attenuate tonal noise and vibration from the propellers. Skin-mounted constrained layer damping panels provide both damping and stiffening effects, thus yielding significant reduction of fuselage vibration induced noise. Phase adjustment between the propellers results in effective noise cancellation in the cabin.

In addition, three inches of bagged fiberglass insulation, the use of sound-deadening trim panels and a vibration-isolated interior design creates one of the most effective acoustic treatments in any business aircraft.

Synchrophaser

The King Air 350i’s synchrophaser system not only synchronizes propeller RPM, but also phases blade positions so that right and left propeller blades do not pass by the fuselage at the same time. This prevents the beating type noise sometimes present in non-phased twin engine aircraft. This system is displayed on the Multi-Function Display (MFD).
