Blackhawk Aerospace is celebrating the certification of its 30th major powerplant and ancillary product STC. The milestone STC approval was the XP67A Engine+ upgrade for the King Air 300, which was on display in the Blackhawk booth at Oshkosh in recent weeks.
“This STC represents the pinnacle of achievement for Blackhawk, raising the bar of performance and value standards to the highest levels yet,” says Jim Allmon, Blackhawk’s president and CEO. “I’m incredibly proud of our team and their ability to produce 30 STCs in our 22 years. Blackhawk’s future is bright, and we’re excited to expand upon our current STC base with new and exciting programmes for operators.”
Additional recent approvals include the addition of EASA and UK CAA certifications for the True Blue Power TB44 Lithium Ion battery on the King Air 350 series.
“We continue to expand our global outreach to ensure that the entire market has access to the latest and greatest technology available,” adds Allmon. “The TB44 is a great example of the cutting-edge technology that Blackhawk supports in addition to our engine performance upgrades. Together, the battery-to-engine combination provides operators and unmatched advantage in power, safety, life and efficiency.”
