XP135A Performance

What's Included With The XP135A

XP135A Testimonials

The service provided by Blackhawk was exceptional, and the engines are now installed on the Conquest. I flew it for the first time this weekend and they worked great. Thanks to everyone at Blackhawk for great service on my new engine.

Jim Irwin, 425-0175, Irwin International

I just flew 425ML for the first time last week after getting the new Blackhawk engines, and I am really thrilled with the performance. Last week's flight from CA to FL took 7 hours flight time with one stop , which is more than a full hour less it took with the old 112 engines. We did between 282 to 287 KTAS all the way at FL270.

Michael Drescher, XP135A Conquest I, 425-0123

We are very happy with the recent PT6A-135A upgrade to our aging (1983) aircraft . It has really given new life to the old girl.

Bob Munday, XP135A Conquest I, 425-0167

I am very happy with the 135A engines, now that I have 366 hours on them. I have no regrets and am glad I made the switch to the new engines. I think that the Conquest I is a far better airplane with these engines than with the original -112.

Albert Sickinger, XP135A Conquest I, 425-0076

In short it was the best investment we ever made - and the efforts to make the experience smooth and enjoyable by Blackhawk were astonishing.  Your performance representations were right on the mark. It has been several years since the installation and we could not be happier.

Herb Buchwald, XP135A Conquest I, 425-0215

On a recent trip back to ICT from HIO, we made it nonstop in 3 hours 55min.  It was 1285 miles flown at FL250.  Landed with 700lbs of fuel.  I'm quite certain that could never be done with stock -112s. The owners were quite impressed.  Time and time again the engines prove to be the best money we have ever spent on our Conquest.

Mark Nevil, Chief Pilot, Key Con-Air, XP135A Conquest I 425-0092

XP135A Frequently Asked Questions

Pratt & Whitney Canada (PW&C) offers an engine credit for every hour remaining to the factory TBO. To qualify, the core engine must have enough cycles on the life-limited components to make TBO and all records supporting the component times and cycles must be present and submitted.

Waiting until TBO risks the possibility of a core engine problem, resulting in additional core charges from PW&C. Also, prices from P&WC increase every year, so waiting two or three years would mean a higher investment amount without any of the time-remaining credits.
