EASA Grants STC For King Air F-90 Series PT6A-135A Engine Program

StandardAero Receives Authorization For Engine Upgrades

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has granted an STC to StandardAero to re-engine the Hawker Beechcraft King Air F90 aircraft with Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PT6A-135A engines. This is the same engine that is Type Certified on King Air F90-1 aircraft. StandardAero is the only PT6A designated overhaul facility that can offer customers maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) as well as PT6A engine upgrade options. 
 
"PT6A-135 engines have been in service for more than 30 years, many of which are approaching their third and fourth overhaul," said Manny Atwal, Vice President, Turboprop Programs. "Low Cycle Fatigue replacement, Service Bulletin requirements and customer build specifications are driving up overhaul and maintenance costs.  With our engine-upgrade program, customers can get a brand new PT6A-135A engine for a slightly higher cost than overhauling their aging PT6A-135 engines, while increasing performance, aircraft value, and reducing future engine maintenance costs."

Upgrading to the StandardAero PT6A-135A engine program provides Beechcraft King Air F90 operators with the latest in P&WC engine technology, increased aircraft value and increased performance. StandardAero also offers extended warranty coverage to 10 years or base time-before-overhaul.
