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
"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.
