With external qualities and a single-engine turboprop arrangement akin to the French Daher TBM (detailed elsewhere in the Military Factory), the Beechcraft Denali is set for certification in 2025 with service entry planned shortly thereafter. The design was debuted at Oshkosh 2023 and relies on a proven design form to fulfill similar passenger / utility functions as the competing veteran Daher offering. The Denali is a 'clean sheet' design built from the ground up.

The aircraft has a tubular fuselage lined by porthole windows along the cabin and broad view panes at the cockpit. The engine is held ahead of the cockpit within an elongated nose section housing the turboprop engine installation. Wing mainplanes are set near midships and are of a tapered straight design capped by winglets. The tail unit is made up of a single vertical fin with high-mounted horizontal planes (T-style arrangement). For ground running, the aircraft relies on a fully-retractable, wheeled tricycle undercarriage.

Dimensions include a running length of 48.8 feet, a wingspan of 54.2 feet, and a height of 15.2 feet.

The Denali is marketed with an operating range of 1,600 nautical miles when carrying four passengers and can reach a ceiling of 31,000 feet. Maximum occupancy reaches 11 and depends on internal seating configuration. Cruise speeds reach up to 285 knots while range of the aircraft allows it to reach both coasts of the United States as well as most of Canada and all of Mexico down to Guatemala.

The aircraft is powered by a GE Aviation Catalyst turboprop engine of 1,300 horsepower output driving a five-bladed, composite McCauley-branded propeller unit (reversible) at the nose. The engine is tied to a dual channel FADEC (Full-Authority Digital Engine Control) system. The Catalyst is the first turboprop engine to feature 3D-printed parts in its makeup.

The pilots are seated in a side-by-side configuration behind a most modern instrument panel which is dominated by three 14in full-color Multi-Function Displays (MFDs) featuring the Garmin G3000 series avionics set. Each position is given a control yoke as well as a side-accessible control panel. Throttle controls are set between the pilots in the usual way. The cockpit sports the Garmin Emergency Autoland and Integrated Autothrottle systems. Weather avoidance radar is in-built as is a Terrain Avoidance Warning System (TAWS) and Garmin Traffic Collision and Avoidance System (TCAS).

Once introduced, the Denali will become the latest entry in the storied company's history which currently includes the classic and popular King Air, Baron, and Bonanza offerings.
