StandardAero Earns STC for King Air 200 Re-engining Program

Upgrades PT6s To More Powerful -42 Variants

StandardAero tells ANN the company recently received Supplemental Type Certification (STC-SA02603CH-D) to remove Pratt & Whitney Canada (PWC) PT6A-41 series engines on the Beechcraft King Air 200 and replace them with new or serviceable PT6A-42 engines. StandardAero is the only PT6A designated overhaul facility that can offer customers both maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and engine upgrade options.

"PT6A-41 engines have been in service for more than 35 years, many of which are approaching their third and fourth overhaul," said StandardAero General Manager PT6A Business Unit, Manny Atwal. "Low Cycle Fatigue replacement, Service Bulletin requirements and customer build specifications are driving up the overhaul and maintenance costs. With the StandardAero engine upgrade program, customers can get a new PT6A-42 engine for a slightly higher cost than overhauling their aging -41 engine, while increasing performance and aircraft value."

Upgrading to the StandardAero PT6A-42 engine program provides King Air 200 operators with the latest in PWC engine technology, increased aircraft value and increased performance. True Airspeed (TAS) at Flight Level 240 increases to 290 knots and no airframe modifications are required. StandardAero also offers extended warranty coverage to 10 years or base TBO.

To support the program with new engines, Pratt & Whitney Canada has developed a Converter Exchange Program that allows an operator to turn in their core for new engines. Engines must be in serviceable condition and come with complete logbooks.

StandardAero notes its Designated Alternation Station (DAS) in Springfield, IL was instrumental in receiving this approval. This dedicated group completed all of the FAA requirements and obtained the STC in less than three months.

P&S Investments and the Staley Family of Little Rock, AR was the launch customer for the re-engining project.
