Blackhawk Modification recently announced the addition of Banyan Air Service of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to its global distributor network of authorized engine upgrade centers.

Blackhawk Modifications specializes in P&WC PT6A turboprop upgrades. The company upgrades the 90- and 200-series King Airs, as well as the Conquest I and Cheyennes. Based in Waco, Texas, Blackhawk has upgraded more than 100 turboprops since 2000.

“Now that the number of aircraft equipped with Blackhawk XP engine upgrades exceeds 100, it is essential that we expand our installation and support capabilities to accommodate the needs of our customers,” said Blackhawk CEO Jim Allmon. “Banyan’s talented service and support crew, coupled with its prime location, makes it a natural fit to represent our growing product line of XP engine upgrades.”

According to Allmon, Banyan is the only repair station with FAA, EASA, Venezuela, Argentina and Brazil authorizations and approvals. The facility occupies 85 acres and encompasses more than one million sq ft of hangar space.
