Smyrna Air Center expands Power 90 conversion program

Smyrna Air Center has expanded its United States installation center network for the Power 90 engine conversion program to Mather Aviation in Rancho Cordova, Calif.

Mather Aviation is a FAA certified MRO that is recognized as a leader in aircraft maintenance providing comprehensive maintenance of piston, turboprop and jet aircraft, according to Smyrna Air Center officials.

The Power 90 Upgrade Program is a conversion program for owners of King Air 90 aircraft, in which the installed engines are replaced with 705 shaft-horsepower (shp) GE M601E-11A engines. In addition to the faster rates of climb, the M601E-11A engine also provides faster cruise speeds than current engines in the segment, according to a July 2010 study by Conklin & de Decker performed for GE.
