King Air Engine Upgrade Program

What is StandardAero’s King Air Engine Upgrade Program?

StandardAero has always looked for innovative ways to keep our customers’ costs down and add value to their aircraft. Our King Air Engine Upgrade Program was an initiative between Pratt & Whitney Canada and StandardAero to provide options for our customers with aging and expensive engines.

Did you know that PT6A-41 and PT6A-42 engines have been around for more than 35 years, and many are now approaching their third or fourth overhaul?

If you look at the cost difference of brand new technology versus overhauling an engine model that was certified 30 to 35 years ago, it would likely be in your best interest to choose the new hardware. Plus, you get a first run overhaul at the next event, new engine warranty and better performance if you choose to upgrade.
