I am buying. Having the Caravan and King Air study level will keep me very busy.

Caravan is my favorite turboprop now! Can't wait for King Air!

Hooray!  I wonder if the 20% discount would also apply in the other direction if I pick up the king air then want to Caravan later?

Either way, super excited for the king air.

Looks interesting, but hard for me to get behind that price tag…

Hmmm. It's a rust bucket alright, but I have fond memories of the Aeroworx KingAir. 

Ha! You've dated yourself and I'm about to join you 😉 Ah yes, the Aeroworx B200 - truly a ground breaking plane for flight simming for its time. As far as I know, it was the first to introduce the possibility of a turbine "hot start" into the equation. Loved that plane - flew it around the world twice in addition to the umpteen gazillion other hours I logged in general flights. I will purchase the JF and hope it affords a similar amount of satisfaction.

Is beta range working in the caravan/king air?

It's working in the Caravan, and I use it all the time.

From the Caravan manual:

Turboprop Engine Simulation


As many users of MSFS are aware, the native turbine engine simulation is flawed. This product
makes numerous adjustments to the natively driven turbine values displayed on the cockpit
instrumentation to provide a more realistic experience, but still not without its flaws. Mainly,
users will notice the following:

● Ambient temperature has a larger effect on idle ITT than it should
● Beta range not properly gated or simulated
● Propeller drag is insufficient at flight idle

No, sorry.  This is a one-time discount offering for current owners of the Caravan.

From the Caravan manual:

Be that as it may, I use the beta range on most landings, and it significantly reduces the landing distance. 

Update on the King Air (14 minutes ago on the official forums):

We’re still on track to release the King Air today, within the next hour or so we hope.

Your comment made me look into this further. I got a reply on the official forums

Quote

In the real aircraft, moving the power lever back below idle has two seperate affects.

The first is to directly control the propeller pitch, reducing it below the forward fine pitch stop position and into a negative pitch position, passing from forward thrust, through zero thrust, to eventually producing reverse thrust. Again, in this portion of power lever movement, you are directly controlling the propeller blade angle only. The engine remains at idle.

Once the maximum negative pitch has been achieved, any further reduction of the power lever only increases fuel flow, and hence Ng%, further increasing reverse thrust by increasing the engine power output.

The net result of both of these functions, is that the further behind the idle gate one pulls the power lever, the greater the stopping forces generated.

Whilst moving the power lever below idle in MSFS still has a noticeable affect, the MSFS simulation of this is greatly simplified, hence the statement in the manual.
