EASA OKs Raisbeck Swept-blade Props for King Air 200 Series

Raisbeck Engineering’s swept-blade propellers for 200-series King Airs have been certified by the EASA, adding to a previous FAA approval. Thanks to a higher blade sweep and increased propeller diameter, the new propellers provide for quieter operation and increased thrust, according to Raisbeck. They provide more than 1,090-feet improvement in published FAA takeoff performance compared with the OEM propellers, Raisbeck said. Deliveries of production swept-blade propellers began in the U.S. in March.
