The Valsan conversion received an STC for the first retrofit of the outboard engines of a Boeing 727 with Pratt & Whitney -217 engines. The STC for the “Valsan modification” became known as the Super 27-200 with a designation of “RE”. The 27-200 modification achieved a noise attenuation level 5.1db below Stage 3 noise by replacing the number 1 and 3 engines with JT8D-217C engines, each providing 22,000 lb. thrust, while retaining the center engine (in S/N 22825 , a -17 engine with 16,000 lb. thrust). The optional winglets on this aircraft give the aircraft increased fuel economy, superior cruise performance and substantially increased stability at high altitudes.

Fuel Burn 10-15% reduction
Required Takeoff Field Length 20% reduction
Time to Climb 23% Reduction
Sea Level Range Increased 400 NM
