Ft. Lauderdale’s Banyan Air Service at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) has been named a StandardAero-approved installation facility for the Cessna Caravan 208-series aircraft engine-upgrade program.
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, according to company officials. 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.
