Blackhawk Modifications is far and away Pratt & Whitney Canada's best non-OEM customer, having taken delivery of 1,000 PT6A engines over a 16-year collaboration. Senior executives from Blackhawk and Pratt & Whitney Canada commemorated the milestone engine at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.

P&WC executives including company president John Saabas congratulated Blackhawk president and CEO Jim Allmon at a ceremony on the Waco, Texas-based engine mod company's long run of success.

Sabas noted that "Blackhawk has earned a rock-solid reputation for providing value-added conversion solutions to its customers. Because our PT6A engine has played such an important role in Blackhawk's remarkable success, we are particularly pleased that the 1,000th engine will be used to support an evolving business venture of selling converted aircraft."

A King Air C90 with the milestone engine installed is being offered for sale. It is one of the aircraft on display in the Blackhawk exhibit at AirVenture Oshkosh.
