MT-Propellers

MT-Propellers

4- and 5-blade composite props

MT-Propeller’s fast, lightweight composite propellers reduce weight, vibration, and drag while increasing lift, thrust, and lifetime operation. These 4- and 5-blade propellers maximize the benefits of a Blackhawk engine upgrade. 

Upgrades Available For

  • Caravan
  • Cheyenne I, II, IIXL
  • Conquest I
  • Grand Caravan
  • King Air 200
  • King Air 300
  • King Air 350/350ER
  • King Air 90

UPGRADE BENEFITS


  • Reduced Weight – Lighter than aluminum, natural composite propellers reduce weight on the engine crankshaft and overall aircraft weight.
  • Reduced Vibration – Unlike aluminum, composites do not experience harmonic vibration. Gyros, motor mounts, radios, heat muffs, cowlings, and more enjoy longer life with reduced vibration. 
  • Greater Strength – Composites are stronger than aluminum. 
  • Unlimited Blade Life – Composite propellers are brought back to exact factory-new dimensions during overhaul, avoiding replacement.
  • Steel Hub Inserts – Steel bearing inserts eliminate the requirement to replace the full hub when tolerances are exceeded. 
  • Quieter – Shorter blades and increased blade count results in a smaller diameter and lower, quieter tip speeds. 
  • More Lift/Thrust – Lower tip speeds maintain smooth airflow, resulting in more lift/thrust. 
  • Less Drag – A smaller prop arc disc creates less drag than larger diameter prop arc discs. 
  • More Ground Clearance – Smaller diameter propeller blades reduce chances for prop damage from ground objects and debris. 
  • Added Resale Value – Upgrade benefits are passed along, increasing resale value. 
  • Easy Installation – The blades bolt on easily and use the existing prop governor. 
  • Full Warranty – 1 year or 1,000 hours (whichever occurs first) for any manufacturing defects. 

TECHNOLOGY


  • Natural composite blades and hubs with stainless steel leading-edge guards 
  • Unlimited blade life through the ability to restore composites to factory specifications during overhaul 
  • Steel hub bearing inserts 
  • Increased blade count and shorter diameter 
  • Utilize existing prop governors 
  • Available in white, black, or grey

Michael Miklus, Cheyenne II

It climbs at 2,000 FPM at the same speed I used to cruise at. I have seen barber pole speeds on every flight since I put my new Blackhawk’s on and still have power to spare.

Jim Costello, Cheyenne II

I couldn’t be happier with the 135A’s. I save about 30 to 45 minutes on most of my flights and my fuel cost has stayed the same. It’s just fun to fly.

Dan Rogers, Cheyenne I

I’m so glad I did the upgrade. I had very high expectations on the performance promised by Blackhawk, and Blackhawk came through with flying colors!

Jeff Mickler, Cheyenne I

The XP engine upgrade has exceeded my expectations and is by far the best aftermarket investment I have ever made on any aircraft. Having extra horsepower at the right hand makes the Blackhawk Cheyenne an absolute thrill to fly.

Jim Costello, Cheyenne II

Just over a year ago I sold the Cheyenne in one day to a very happy buyer. Your engines made the deal!! Your engines got me started on going faster 265-70 KTAS and now I’ve moved up to 365 KTAS at FL410. Thanks again!

Can my shop do the installation or does Blackhawk have to do the installation?

Blackhawk does not perform installations. Although the installation is basically an engine change and can be done by any Pratt & Whitney Canada certified facility, we have found that you will save time and money if the upgrade is performed by any of our approved installation facilities worldwide. These facilities have the experience to complete the upgrade faster and with the higher exacting quality you demand.

What is the lead time on engines?

Blackhawk orders all engines a year in advance. We can usually deliver within 30-60 days or sooner. Call for timing on the next set of available engines.
