Atlanta Ga. – Oct. 19, 2010 – StandardAero has modified its Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PT6A-52 Supplemental Type Certification (STC) for the Beechcraft King Air 200/200C/B200/B200C to interface with Garmin G1000 avionics package. The STC replaces P&WC PT6A-41 or -42 series engines with PT6A-52 engines and four-bladed Hartzell propellers. This is the same engine and propeller combination that is Type Certified on new Beechcraft King Air B200GT aircraft. StandardAero is the only PT6A designated overhaul facility that can offer customers maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) as well as PT6 engine upgrade options.
Operators with the G1000 Avionics package can now upgrade to the latest engine for the King Air airframe. Upgrading to the StandardAero PT6A-52 engine program provides Beechcraft King Air 200-series operators with the latest in P&WC engine technology, increased aircraft value and increased performance, allowing for over 300 knots true airspeed in cruise. StandardAero also offers extended warranty coverage to 10 years or base time-before-overhaul. Operators with second and third run PT6A-41/42 engines can also save on overhauls costs.
