Blackhawk Modifications received EASA certification for its XP42A conversion for the Cessna 208B Grand Caravan. Blackhawk received FAA approval in June for the conversion, which replaces the stock P&WC PT6A-114A engine with the more powerful -42A model. The conversion also includes a new engine cowling, new Frakes exhaust stacks and a new Hartzell 100-inch four-blade propeller. According to Blackhawk, the XP42A offers substantial performance improvements in fuel consumption, cruise speed, rate-of-climb and useful load.
