For over 30 years, Raisbeck Engineering has been designing, developing and marketing performance systems for Beechcraft King Air aircraft. These systems enable all Raisbeck-equipped aircraft to outperform the basic King Air in such areas as takeoff distance, climb, speed and range.
Each Raisbeck System is individually engineered to enhance specific operational areas of the King Air. For many years Raisbeck has packaged these systems to take advantage of the positive synergistic effects they collectively produce on the overall performance of certain King Air models. In 2005, Raisbeck decided to name this strategic integration “EPIC” for the “grand” performance it delivers.
Each EPIC is specially priced to save you thousands of dollars.
Noticeably quieter, Raisbeck’s Composite 5-Blade Swept Propeller combines airfoil efficiency and carbon fiber structural design to maximize thrust. Now available for 300/350 series and 200 series King Airs, this combination enhances climb and cruise speed performance, along with takeoff and landing distances, without increasing noise levels in your airplane or on the ground. Operators can enjoy 4 percent better runway acceleration, improved landing deceleration and weight savings over other propeller materials. Composite blades offer unlimited blade life, providing operators the ability to maintain airfoil shape over time.
Enjoy the benefits of Raisbeck’s Aluminum 4-Blade Swept Propellers, which utilize Raisbeck Swept Blade technology to allow for a larger diameter propeller. The increased propeller size provides greater thrust, while reducing noise and vibration throughout the cabin. Manufactured by Hartzell Propeller, our propellers feature aerodynamically designed airfoils that extend fully into the spinner for prop efficiency and airflow to the engine. Propeller hub and blades are manufactured with high-strength aluminum forgings, providing weight savings over OEM-installed propellers.
Increase climb and cruise performance in all conditions with Raisbeck’s Ram Air Recovery System (RARS). By efficiently redirecting airflow to your engines, Raisbeck’s Ram Air Recovery decreases ITT by up to 18° at same torque setting, while also protecting against foreign object damage (FOD) and increasing all-weather capability.
Improve your aircraft’s directional stability, passenger comfort, pilot control and aircraft handling with Raisbeck’s Dual Aft Body Strakes (DABS). Wing to body vortices normally disrupt the airflow under your aircraft’s aft fuselage, resulting in drag. Raisbeck’s Dual Aft Body Strakes eliminates this separation, channeling the vortices and accelerating the air, creating a better climb and cruise performance.
Improve your aircraft’s climb and cruise speed performance while reducing stall speeds with Raisbeck’s Enhanced Performance Leading Edges (EPLE). Constructed of lightweight composite material, Raisbeck’s Leading Edges replace OEM factory leading edges to provide increased performance and safety by eliminating airflow separation and drag on the wings during takeoff roll, which results in superior handling characteristics and smoother rotation at takeoff.
Is your King Air equipped with high-flotation landing gear? If so, restore your aircraft’s climb and performance while keeping wheel wells, tires and brakes protected from the elements with Raisbeck’s fully-enclosed High Flotation Gear Doors.
Optimize cargo capabilities without any performance loss with Raisbeck’s Crown Wing Lockers (CWLS). Made of lightweight composite construction, Raisbeck’s Crown Wing Lockers keep your cabin clear of clutter – providing greater flexibility for storing luggage and cargo securely outside of the cabin.
Want more power with less noise? Raisbeck’s Quiet Turbofan Propellers (Power Props) improve performance in all phases of flight. King Air owners and operators can enjoy quieter operations while taking advantage of the operational benefits of increased takeoff, climb, cruise and landing performance.
