blackhawk now exclusive provider of mt 5-blade propellers for caravan
July 23, 2018
MT Propeller has granted Blackhawk Modifications full aftermarket exclusivity to provide the FAA and EASA approved MT 5-blade composite propeller to PT6A-140 and -42A-powered Cessna Caravan’s including the Grand Caravan EX.
The MT propellers are made from natural composite materials which saves about 30 pounds of weight and significantly dampens vibration and reduces noise on the ground and in flight. This is the only propeller that meets the stringent European noise regulations and allows unrestricted operations for European operators. Other attributes include a nickel alloy leading edge for superior erosion protection of the blades, unlimited blade life and Foreign Object Damage (FOD) field-repairable blades, a 96.5-inch diameter allowing for increased ground clearance, and a simple bolt-on installation for reduced aircraft downtime. Optional Increased Gross Weight Kits are also approved with the MT 5-blade composite propeller.
