Blackhawk hits milestone as company celebrates 15th anniversary

Blackhawk Modifications is celebrating two milestones — the company’s 15-year anniversary and the upcoming completion of its 500th aircraft upgrade.

“Since May 1999, Blackhawk has been proudly helping turboprop aircraft owners and pilots upgrade their aircraft with new Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PT6A engines,” said Blackhawk President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Allmon. “Blackhawk was born from the idea that new, more capable engines would provide aircraft performance and value enhancements not possible through overhaul alone.”

Blackhawk specializes in engineering development and certification of engines and has 25 Supplemental Type Certificates (STC) from multiple agencies for turboprop aircraft, including most King Air 90 and 200 models, Piper Cheyenne I, II and IIXL models, Cessna 425s, Conquest Is and Cessna 208A and 208B Caravans. The company has the largest installed fleet of STC twin-engine turboprop engine upgrades, and is the world’s largest non-OEM buyer of new P&WC turboprop engines, according to Blackhawk officials.

Headquartered in Waco, Texas, Blackhawk employs 31 full-time staff personnel and provides a network of more than 73 distributors and certified installation facilities worldwide.
