May 3, 2018
Raisbeck Engineering, Inc., has received Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approval from the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil (ANAC) for its Composite Five-Blade Swept Propeller for the King Air 350 series aircraft.
“We are thrilled our Brazilian customers are now able to benefit from the advantages the Composite Five-Blade Swept Propellers bring to the King Air 350,” said Bill Lally, Vice President of Customer Support. “This new STC approval broadens our ability to offer the Composite Five-Blade Swept Propeller to customers across the globe.” In addition to ANAC STC approval, the Composite Five-Blade Swept Propeller has received certification from the FAA (Federal Aviation Authority) and Australia, with Transport Canada and EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) approvals expected soon.
Raisbeck’s Composite Five-Blade Swept Propeller, designed to improve the King Air 350 comfort, performance and efficiency, was developed in collaboration with Hartzell Propeller. At 106-inches in diameter, the Composite Five-Blade Swept Propeller reduces weight and contributes to improved short field and climb performance, while providing strength, durability and lowering cockpit and cabin sound levels.
