Raisbeck Dual Aft Body Strakes

Raisbeck Dual Aft Body Strakes

Enhanced performance and comfort

Raisbeck Dual Aft Body Strakes improve directional stability, passenger comfort, and aircraft control and handling. By channeling airflow under the aft fuselage, the strakes reduce noise while increasing comfort and performance.

Upgrades Available For

  • King Air 200
  • King Air 300
  • King Air 350/350ER
  • King Air 90

Get all the details

UPGRADE BENEFITS


  • Improved directional stability and pilot control
  • Reduced drag in all flight modes
  • Improved passenger ride quality
  • Quieter cabin and cockpit
  • Increased climb and cruise performance
  • Inherently reduced minimum control airspeed
  • Eliminate or increase yaw-damper-inoperative altitudes

TECHNOLOGY


The strakes eliminate wing/body vortices that disrupt airflow under the aft fuselage and create drag. The strakes instead channel the vortices, accelerating the air to push the airplane through the air.

  • Classic beech ventral fin is removed
  • The shedding wing/body vortices are captured under the aft fuselage, pressurizing and reducing aft-body drag
  • Equivalent vertical tail area is increased

  • Improved runway acceleration and landing deceleration
  • Certified worldwide to meet the most stringent regulations and noise requirements
  • Trouble-free operation between 6-year, 4,000-hour overhauls

TECHNOLOGY


  • Unique combination of aerodynamic technology and computer-aided manufacturing
  • Full 30° blade sweep increases prop diameter for greater thrust without added noise of vibration
  • Oversized hydraulic power piston to lock in propeller synchrophasing
  • Grease-lubricated hubs to preclude oil leaks

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

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.
