The FAA STC for Raisbeck Engineering’s Swept Blade Turbofan Propellers for the King Air 350 has been officially accepted by Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).
Raisbeck’s Swept Blade Propellers for the King Air 200 Series and 90 Series were also approved shortly after their introduction by CASA for operations in Australia, and are also certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The Swept Blade Propellers enable larger diameter propellers for increased thrust while significantly reducing in-flight cabin noise levels. Takeoff acceleration, single-engine climb, twin-engine climb to altitude and landing performance are all improved and noticeable to the pilot. In addition, there is no floating tendency during landing flare-out.
Raisbeck’s Swept Blade Propellers for the King Air 350 are manufactured by Hartzell Propeller, and are available for purchase and installation on short notice. Constructed of aluminum, the four-blade props can be maintained and overhauled by virtually every prop shop around the world using well-known techniques and procedures.
