SEATTLE — Raisbeck’s EPIC Platinum Performance Package is now available for the King Air 250.
The FAA-certified short field performance allows safe access to thousands more airports around the world, all while retaining increased MMO.
Raisbeck’s Swept Blade Turbofan Propellers are also available as a stand-alone installation.
“From early on, King Air 250 owners have been asking for the EPIC Performance Package, along with the reduced noise and ramp appeal unique to our Swept Blade Turbofan Propellers,” said Bill Cadow, Raisbeck’s VP of Sales. “A key driver was the need for significantly shorter landing distances available with our EPIC Package. There is definitely a market here for those who need our FAA-approved EPIC short takeoff and landing capability, such as air medical operations in Scandinavia and throughout Europe. An additional capability with the EPIC Package includes increased cruise speeds of up to 10 knots, with associated quicker time-to-climb. There are also those operators who prefer higher thrust aluminum propellers instead of the 250’s 4-blade smaller-diameter composite props.”
More than 1,300 EPIC Performance Packages for the King Air 200 series have been installed. Raisbeck offers the improvements through a worldwide network of Authorized Raisbeck Dealers, including all Textron Aviation Service Centers.
