April 11, 2014 — Seattle, Wash. — Raisbeck Engineering's Swept Blade Propellers for the King Air C90 series have been certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The request for the STC was submitted to the FAA on January 9th, 2014 and official approval was received on March 21st, 2014.
“Our new Swept Blade Propellers were designed to the current standards of the FAA. This allowed for a quick and very smooth process when requesting the STC from EASA,” said Bill Lally, Vice President of customer Support. Lally leads all of Raisbeck’s certification coordination globally.
When included in the EPIC Performance Package for the C90 and E90 series, the STC for Raisbeck's Swept Blade Propellers allows full operational use of increased takeoff (10,500 lbs) and landing (9,700 lbs) weights, improved FAA-Certified takeoff and landing field-length performance, better climb and cruise performance, and overall quieter operations through reduced climb and cruise rpm.
James Raisbeck, CEO and Founder of Raisbeck Engineering, said, “Receiving the STC from EASA on the new Swept Blade Propellers is simply another step in Raisbeck’s goal to stay certified in every corner of the globe."
