Blackhawk Aerospace Receives PMA Authorization

First Up: Improving Citation 525, 550 STC Offerings, Then onto King Air Modifications

Blackhawk Aerospace Technologies has announced the successful receipt of FAA Parts Manufacturer Approval Authorization. 

Their new PMA allows them to produce and sell modifications and replacement parts for type-certified aircraft and products. Blackhawk sees the new ability as a mark of pride, showing the high level of quality and competence shown in their work up to now. For customers, this now means that Blackhawk products will be even easier to support, allowing the company to do more in-house and ship product faster. 

The new authorization will be put to work designing enhancements and equipment to pair with some of their most popular STCs for the Citation jet. The Citation 525’s Garmin Avionics Modification, the S550/560 glareshield mod, and the G700 & GTN STCs will be the first beneficiaries to enjoy new development, though Blackhawk will likely continue honing the rest of their collection as well. They made mention of plans to produce King Air enhancements with their new capabilities, but from the outside it seems their portfolio is replete with projects. Recently, they began certification flight testing on Pilatus PC-12 engine upgrades, allowing owners a significant upgrade in that aircraft’s performance, with improved reliability and capability. 

“With Blackhawk Aerospace Technologies, Inc. obtaining PMA Authorization, we can enhance our services to our customer network,” said Conrad Theisen, VP of Sales and Marketing. “We will have the ability to not only provide custom avionics electrical interface drawings, but also to provide kits that support installation shops with wire harnesses, antenna doublers, instrument panels and kitting up parts to facilitate an easier installation, allowing for shorter downtime and fewer manhours on the project.”
