Raisbeck Modifications

Elliott Aviation is an authorized Raisbeck dealer for the King Air. Raisbeck Performance Systems are available for the 300 series, 200 series, 90 series, and 100 series.

Each modification is designed to significantly increase the performance of your King Air. When fully-equipped with the EPIC Performance Package, your King Air will achieve increased allowable gross weight, shorter takeoff and landing distances, better climb and initial cruise altitudes, faster and more fuel-efficient cruise, and enhanced all-weather engine performance.

Ram Air Recovery System

Models

  • All 200-series

Benefits

  • Significantly increase climb and cruise performance in both normal and anti-ice operating modes
  • 18° cooler engine operating ITT at equal torque
  • 8% increased available horsepower at altitude gives you a faster airplane
  • Measureable decrease in fuel flow at equal engine torque, resulting in increased range
  • Reduced torque loss with ice vanes deployed
  • Protects against FOD, deployable for all ground, takeoff and landing operations

Technology

  • Developed and tested in conjuction with Pratt & Whitney of Canada, Ltd
  • FAA-Certified for ice-vane deployment on the ground and in the air
  • Utilizes coanda-effect aerodynamics for efficient airflow vectoring
  • Full inlet plenum sealing through unique full-body diaphragms

Enhanced Performance Leading Edges

Models

  • All 200-series

Benefits

  • Cruise speeds and range are increased
  • Stall speeds and characteristics are improved
  • Air conditioning and cooling are more efficient
  • Outboard wing fatigue life is inherently enhanced

Technology

  • Drag-reducing advanced-technology airfoil
  • All-composite construction for strength and weight-savings
  • Recessed flush-mounted de-icing boots for minimum drag
  • Fully-developed and optimized intercooler inlet for maximum efficiency

Dual Aft Body Strakes


Models

  • All

Benefits

  • Directional stability is increased, eliminating (200 & F90) or raising (300, 350) the yaw-damper-inoperative altitudes; specifically:

Model Factory Raisbeck-equipped
350 5,000 ft 19,000 ft
300 11,000 ft 18,500 ft
200/B200/B200GT 17,000 ft No Limit
F90 17,000 ft No Limit


  • Passenger ride quality is improved
  • Pilot control and handling qualities are enhanced
  • Air Minimum Control Speed is inherently reduced
  • Decreased drag results in increased climb and cruise performance

Technology

  • Classic Beech ventral fin is removed
  • The shedding wing/body vortices are captured under the aft fuselage, pressurizing and reducing aft-body drag
  • Resulting coanda-effect attaches the aft-body airflow
  • Equivalent vertical tail area is increased

Crown Wing Locker Systems

Models

  • All except F90/F90-1, 100/A100/B100

Benefits

  • FAA-certified to carry 600 pounds total cargo in 16 cubic feet of luggage space
  • Returns your cabin to your passengers
  • Handles skis, snowboards, camping and hunting equipment as well as golf bags and luggage
  • Fully certified for FAR Part 135 Operations
  • Provided with lock-and-key security
  • Factory-installed on all new King Air 350s

Technology

  • Lightweight composite construction allows for infinite-life structural certification
  • Aerodynamically area-ruled to minimize drag
  • Fully self-contained for a clean and dry locker interior
  • Removable in minutes for any airplane maintenance or inspections

High Flotation Gear Doors

Models

  • F90
  • A100
  • 100
  • B100
  • 250
  • B200GT
  • B200
  • 200
  • 350
  • 350ER
  • 350i

Benefits

  • Climb and cruise performance of standard-gear King Airs is restored
  • Your cruise speed is increased 8 to 12 knots depending on altitude
  • Wheel wells, tires, and brakes are kept clean, warm, and dry

Technology

  • Fully encloses the protruding high-floating gear, wheels, and tires
  • Aerodynamically area-ruled to maximize drag reduction
  • Constructed of lightweight composites for maximum strength and minimum weight
