The first is an engine modification utilizing the advanced power of GE’s H80 engine. The second is an avionics retrofit with the AeroVue integrated flight deck by BendixKing.
The GE H80 engine offers King Air owners a significant reduction in operating costs with no hot section inspection or recurrent fuel nozzle maintenance required, according to company officials.
“The GE H80 engines bring an estimated 10% increase in range, an 8% increase in SFC, and 90 shp more than the -135A. Those benefits, along with 4,000 TBO, no HSI, and no recurrent fuel nozzle inspection, makes the H80 a sound business investment,” said David Meske, director of marketing.
The GE H80 upgrade is available now for the C90 and E90 with the other models available in the first quarter of 2017, according to company officials.
