The Caravan is a great machine and the Blackhawk upgrade just makes it so much better. We operate in a mountainous area of the country and the ability to quickly climb to altitude is important. The higher cruise speed means more efficient delivery of loads and more trips in a day. The commonality of engines with the King Air fleet is also a big plus. From my perspective, this is a machine that can find work almost anywhere, and be profitable for me and the company while doing it.
