The modifications include Raisbeck/Hartzell propellers and two aft strakes that increase range and takeoff performance and reduce cabin noise. The package also has optional wing lockers fitted behind the engine nacelles.

A King Air fitted with the Epic package installed will have a maximum allowable takeoff weight of 10,500 pounds–an increase of 400 pounds–and a 13-percent reduction in takeoff distance, according to the company. The aircraft will be able to operate from more hot/high airports as a result of the improvements as well.
