The Blackhawk XP Engine+ Upgrades

Your next new aircraft may be the one you already own. Blackhawk XP Engine+ Upgrades transform your legacy aircraft to new, modern standards while avoiding the risk of uncertain engine overhaul costs. Factory-new, more efficient engines deliver the highest performance levels available, saving you both time and money - two more powerful reasons to upgrade your aircraft into something new.

For The Cessna Caravan Series

Replace your tired 600/675 horsepower PT6A-114/-114A engine with a brand-new PT6A-140 powerplant for like-new levels of performance and load carrying capabilities — all while retaining your existing cowling, engine mount, exhaust system, and maintaining the same pilot training and operating characteristics.

For The Cessna Caravan Series

Multiply your power and your revenue generation capability with the Blackhawk Vx Engine+ Upgrade. Blackhawk makes it easy, with a quick, ultra-cost-effective installation that delivers value, performance and enough power to impress any pilot. Replace your tired 600/675 horsepower PT6A-114/-114A engine with a brand-new PT6A-42A powerplant for like-new levels of performance and load carrying capabilities.

For The Piper Cheyenne Series

Breathe new life into your Piper Cheyenne with the Blackhawk XP135A Engine+ Upgrade.  The original engines are exchanged for factory-new Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-135A engines with a new engine warranty and new engine reliability without any airframe modification. The extra horsepower available at higher altitudes allows for higher rates of climb, faster cruise speeds, and shorter times to destination.

For The Cessna Conquest I

The Conquest I is one of Cessna’s best. Make it even better with the Blackhawk XP135A Engine+ Upgrade. The original PT6A-112 engines are exchanged for factory-new Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-135A engines with a new engine warranty and new engine reliability without any airframe modification. The extra horsepower available at higher altitudes allows for higher rates of climb, faster cruise speeds, and shorter times to destination.

For The Beechcraft King Air 90 Series

Upgrade your King Air to new performance levels with the Blackhawk XP135A Engine+ Upgrade with no airframe modifications required.  Original, early generation engines are exchanged for factory-new Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-135A engines with new engine warranties and new engine reliability.  The extra horsepower available at higher altitudes allows for higher rates of climb, faster cruise speeds, and shorter times to destination.

For The Beechcraft King Air 200

Transform your King Air 200 into a B200! The Blackhawk XP42 Engine+ Upgrade is a simple, bolt-on upgrade for the King Air 200 that requires no airframe modification. The original PT6A-41 engines are exchanged for factory-new Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-42 engines. Along with an increased engine TBO and lower operating cost, the Blackhawk XP42 Engine+ enjoys a performance boost comparable to the King Air B200.

For The Beechcraft King Air 200 Series

The Blackhawk XP52 Engine+ Upgrade exchanges the original PT6A-41/-42 engines with Pratt & Whitney Canada’s newer generation PT6A-52 engines. The more efficient design extends the maximum operating temperature to 820°C for more available torque and horsepower at higher altitudes. This horsepower allows for higher rates of climb, faster cruise speeds, and shorter times to destination.

For The Beechcraft King Air 200 Series

Now you can enjoy both a big cabin and impressive cruise speeds. The Blackhawk XP61 Engine+ Upgrade exchanges the original PT6A-41/42 engines with Pratt & Whitney Canada’s newer generation PT6A-61 engines. The larger power section of the PT6A-61 engine allows more torque and horsepower available at higher altitudes. This horsepower allows for higher rates of climb, faster cruise speeds, and shorter times to destination.

For The Beechcraft King Air 350

Ready for a business jet? The Blackhawk XP67A Engine+ Upgrade gives your King Air 350 jet-like speeds while enjoying twice the payload, one-third the operating cost, and access to more airports than jets. Reinvent your King Air today!
