Blackhawk Modifications, Inc. recently welcomed Western Aircraft to their global network of Authorized Dealers. Located in Boise, Idaho, Western Aircraft is an FAA authorized service center, certified aircraft repair station (FE6R532N), and worldwide distributor of parts and avionics for many of the world’s top aircraft manufacturers and OEMs including Beechcraft. The addition of Western Aircraft expands Blackhawk’s Dealer Network to 84 Authorized Dealers worldwide.
Western Aircraft said as a full-service modification center for King Airs, they believe their customers will benefit greatly from the relationship and all that Blackhawk has to offer. The service center is currently installing a Blackhawk XP52 Engine+ Upgrade on a King Air B200 at their facility in Boise. As a result, this B200 will see a 31 percent increase in available horsepower which translates into a 27-knot gain in cruise speed, increased high/hot takeoff performance, and an approximate operating cost savings of more than $45,000 per year.
