StandardAero, Banyan Sign Caravan Support Center Agreement

Engine Upgrade Adds As Much As 150 SHP To Airframe

StandardAero and Fort Lauderdale-based Banyan Air Service have signed a support center agreement, authorizing Banyan as a StandardAero-approved installation facility for the Cessna Caravan 208-series aircraft engine-upgrade program.

The companies tell ANN this engine-upgrade program replaces the PT6A-114 (600 shp)/114A (675 shp) powerplants with the PT6A-135A (750 shp) powerplant.  Providing an alternative to traditional overhaul, the new engine provides an increase in power at altitude and an improved rate of climb.

A redesigned air inlet results in improved ram air recovery to the engine intake -- further increasing engine performance. Engines will be available for installation early in the third quarter of 2009.

"As South Florida’s leading full-service FBO for personal and business aviation services, Banyan is a great partner to bring this upgrade to the Cessna Caravan 208-series operators," said StandardAero General Manager PT6A Business Unit, Manny Atwal. "This partnership will enhance the level of support for our customers not only during the conversion process, but from an ongoing maintenance perspective as well." 

"We are excited about the opportunity to be involved with this upgrade program and look forward to working with the professionals at StandardAero," said Paul Rose, Banyan’s Senior Vice President of Technical Sales.
