WACO, Texas – August 12, 2020 – Blackhawk Aerospace announced today the FAA’s approval for the integration of the Garmin G1000 NXi with the XP67A Engine+ Upgrade for King Air 300 series aircraft. This Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) allows engine parameters from the Blackhawk conversion to be properly displayed on the fully integrated glass panel interface.

“We are proud to offer the XP67A to those operating King Air 300s with G1000 NXi avionics,” said Jim Allmon, Blackhawk’s President and CEO. “Pairing the XP67A with this next generation glass cockpit system delivers a jet-like experience in a far more versatile and capable aircraft.”

The XP67A Engine+ Upgrade for the King Air 300 includes two factory-new Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67A engines and Hartzell 5-bladed composite propellers. This power pairing delivers maximum cruise speeds as high as 343 knots true air speed (KTAS) with an initial rate of climb up to 4,000 feet per minute (FPM). This results in a time to climb from SL to FL350 is 19 minutes – cutting the time to climb by more than half over the stock King Air 300.
