StandardAero and Banyan Air Service have signed a support center agreement authorizing Banyan as a StandardAero-approved installation facility for the Cessna 208 Caravan engine-upgrade program. Banyan is a Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport-based FBO and maintenance facility.

According to Paul Rose, Banyan’s senior vice president of technical sales, the program replaces the PT6A-114 (600 shp)/ -114A (675 shp) with the 750-shp PT6A-135A, providing an alternative to traditional overhaul. The program yields more power at altitude and a stronger rate of climb. The redesigned air inlet results in improved ram air recovery to the engine intake, further increasing engine performance. Rose said engines will be available for installation early in the third quarter.
