Blackhawk (Stand 483) has closed a deal for another XP42 (PT6A-42) King Air aircraft upgrade here at EBACE 2012. The modification company is one of the largest non-OEM buyers of new Pratt & Whitney turboprop engines in the world. The lucky King Air scheduled for a facelift and performance boost is BB-748, operated by Halsted Aviation of Zimbabwe. Beechcraft Service Center National Airways, based at Lanseria Airport, South Africa, will install the PT6A-42 engines to replace and upgrade the aircraft’s original engines, thereby improving its climb rate, fuel specifics, single-engine service ceiling and true airspeed.
