A Word About Your Aircraft's Performance

Take a moment to consider your aircraft’s performance. What’s the first word that comes to mind? If you said something like “OK,” “Lackluster” or “Unimpressive,” you’ve come to the right place.

Blackhawk customers say things like, “Jumps off the runway!”, “Incredible!”, and “Absolutely off the chart!” These are pilots just like you who refused to settle for so-so performance and over-budget overhauls.

They found a better way, and you can, too. New engine performance from Blackhawk – because the best new aircraft may already be in your hangar.
