We couldn’t be happier with this aircraft and operators seem to feel the same way because we’ve already booked almost a dozen orders.
Customers such as SEARCA were one of the first customers to purchase the newly modified configuration and couldn’t be more pleased with their order.
Keys to the upgrade include two factory-new Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-67A engines and new 5-blade composite propeller assemblies and spinners from MT Propellers. Training, support, and a five year/2,500 hour enhanced new-engine warranty are also included.
