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.
