Harry Snow, founder of Snow Aviation International, is officially taking orders for his minimally-priced $6.8 million upgrade kit for older C-130E/Hs. Key upgrades include Hamilton Sundstrand NP2000 propellers and Snow-designed 512-gal tip tanks. A three-year series of flight demonstrations has confirmed the eight-bladed propeller system and cleaner aerodynamics reduces takeoff roll by 30%, Snow says. He expects an imminent order from a US government customer, followed by foreign sales.

    Can we get one of these for X-Plane 9?

    The fact that the US government has not placed any contracts with Snow Aviation is conclusive proof of the criminal influence-for-sale universally accepted state of affairs in America. These systems and retrofits to the C130 are far less expensive, far more capable, & far more reliable than anything available from Lockheed. Yet, lobbying & bribery by Lockheed has so far prevented this boon for the taxpayers & aircrew from being purchased.
