If you take the total number of systems sold as an indicator of popularity, Raisbeck’s Dual Aft Body Strakes are the most popular performance system in the Raisbeck arsenal for making a great airplane—Beechcraft’s King Air—even better.
INCLUDING OEM SALES of systems installed on new King Airs coming off the Wichita production line, the three top sellers of 2011 to date are, in order:
1. Dual Aft Body Strakes
2. Wing Lockers
3. Ram Air Recovery System
One might conclude that, because strakes and lockers have been factory-standard equipment since 2001 and 2004, respectively, those two systems would ‘naturally’ enjoy top-seller status. And now that the new King Air 250s are all being equipped with Raisbeck’s Ram Air Recovery System, one should expect it to be among the Big Three.
BUT THAT’S NOT THE WHOLE STORY.
