The King Air 200/C-12 Huron is the government designation for a series of twin-engine turboprop aircraft derived from the Hawker Beechcraft King Air 200. Hundreds of King Air 200/C-12s, powered by Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-42 turboprop engines, are flown in support of missions ranging from medical evacuation to personnel and cargo transport. Vector-Hawk’s engine performance solutions are designed to keep these important government assets flying safely, reliably and cost effectively.
Engine upgrades may be the right solution for King Air 200/C-12 operators ready to increase performance and decrease operational costs, and Vector-Hawk Aerospace offers three proven engine upgrade options (XP42, XP52 and XP61). Engine overhauls are expensive – with the potential for unexpected problems and hidden costs – but no change in performance. For more than 300 satisfied customers, engine upgrades from Vector-Hawk Aerospace are a sure thing, and the only way to ensure factory-new condition with improved performance, reduced operating costs, and higher resale value. Exclusively endorsed by Hawker Beechcraft Corporation, Vector-Hawk Aerospace’s Performance Packages for King Air 200/C-12 aircraft harness the power of the Vector-Hawk Aerospace organization, and its unparalleled experience and expertise, to deliver a complete and proven performance solution.
Original factory gauges often become unreliable and difficult to repair and recalibrate. Vector-Hawk Aerospace’s Hawkeye DigiLog Gauges optimize flight management functionality and introduce modern advancements in human factors engineering to legacy aircraft. These in-stock replacements combine the familiarity of two-inch round analog gauges with microprocessor-based signal processing and digital display technology. They also feature a power-on self-test function, continuous self-test function and continuous sensor reasonableness test function. Each lightweight gauge is configured for visual display of exceedances, proper instrument/sensor operations and alarm annunication to ensure that pilots are notified of potential engine or sensor problems. Backlit blue displays ensure easy readability at night. Other benefits include a two-year warranty and the ability to transfer data for tracking and trend analysis.
As globally recognized PT6 experts, Vector-Hawk Aerospace offers cost-effective maintenance, repair and overhaul services ranging from routine engine maintenance to complete, complex overhauls, including parts refurbishment.
