EASA and Brazilian Certification Added to Raisbeck’s Beechcraft C90/C90GT EPIC Gross Weight Increase

SEATTLE -- Brazilian and European C90 operators are now able to benefit from Raisbeck’s gross weight increase (GWI) to 10,500 pounds, part of the company’s C90 series EPIC package. It also includes full noise certification.

The GWI EPIC Performance Package includes Raisbeck/Hartzell 93-inch Quiet Turbofan Propellers and Dual Aft Body Strakes. It is available for all C90 series, including the C90GT, and will soon be available for the new C90GTi, pending certification of that airplane’s Proline 21 system with the Raisbeck/Hartzell Propellers.

The GWI gives operators an added 400 to 850 pounds of extra fuel, payload or both, and provides full utility to Raisbeck’s optional Crown Wing Lockers.

"Our GWI greatly expands the operational flexibility of C90s, and customers benefit from the available re-sale of the aircraft in international markets," says Scott Keefe, Raisbeck’s King Air Sales Manager. "It has generated tremendous interest from our international dealers, who have numerous installations scheduled throughout the first quarter of 2009 and beyond."
