The Frakes Aviation Turbo Cat was a pioneer in turbine power in the late 70’s, so it is only right that the Frakes AG STCs find their new home in Michigan at another leader in turbine technology – Turbine Conversions, Ltd. TCL is under the leadership of Bill Hatfield who has been producing and operating Turbine Ag Aircraft himself since the late 70’s.
Turbine powered ag-planes have quicker take off, faster climb, tighter turns and carry heavier loads than their piston- powered cousins.
Lower drag and reliability are more reasons that converting to Turbine Power is the right direction to take!
You can trust TCL with 30+ years of experience producing turbine package to provide you a High Quality turbine power package for your aircraft.
Bill Hatfield continues to operate the #3 produced Turbo Cat he installed himself in 1978. Although at the time it was a risky investment it has more than paid off working reliably for the past 40 years!
