Chris Palmer, Chief Pilot, King Air 350

Heck yeah the XP67A Upgrade is great! I have put about 240 hours on the engines so far. Just took a trip, Dayton to Naples FL310 – FL320 330 KTAS. Doing everything you said it would.

Cody Pierce, Chief Pilot, King Air 350

I’ve done a bit of contract work in an older CE-550. Having now seen both those, and our 350 in action it puts things into perspective. Leg times are nearly identical, the jet burns 33% more fuel and is significantly more uncomfortable in every way. I’m sure you know all this, but it was really interesting for me to see both aircraft side by side. Makes me really appreciate what we have.

The other big thing was time to climb. We can get to 34k in about 15-17 minutes. 28 minutes in the Citation.

Shawn Collins, Pilot, King Air 350

It gets better with each flight because we keep discovering new features. The boss loves the noticeably quieter cabin from the 5 blade props. In the climb, we can peg the VSI all the way to altitude if we want with power left over. Or, we can climb at a comfortable 2000 FPM and keep our KIAS up. More power takes the worry out on top of the climb. We are no longer sitting on a pinhead at FL270. The faster cruise speeds balance out the additional fuel used.
The upgrade is remarkable.

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

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

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
