Blackhawk Aerospace, the Waco, Texas, conversion outfit, has earned a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the FAA that it says will transform the Beechcraft King Air 300 into “the fastest King Air in the world.” This upgrade includes installation of factory-new Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-67As to replace the stock PT6A-60As on 12,500-lb. and 14,000-lb.-gross-weight models, along with composite, five-blade and swept Hartzell propellers.
