Hartzell Propeller Inc. is the leader in advanced propeller design and manufacturing technology. They are the supplier of choice for nearly every major aircraft manufacturer.
The company traces its history to 1914 when a relationship between Orville Wright and Robert Hartzell led to the manufacture of the first Hartzell propeller in 1917. The company’s founding principle of "Built on Honor" has been central to their corporate values from the very beginning.
“I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to Hartzell Propeller’s President Joe Brown for accepting our invitation to provide his expertise for our rapidly growing organization. It will allow us to focus even more on growth and further development of the Club for the benefit and safety of General Aviation” – said Radek Wyrzykowski, President of the IMC Club International, Inc.
Too often pilots finish their training and then become distracted and disengaged from the flying community. The result is a dangerous lack of proficiency and or the loss of support to the flying community as a whole. The IMC Club is mitigating this issue by providing a means to re-engage pilots with other pilots and instructors. IMC club is coaching, training, mentoring and helping pilots to fly in actual instrument meteorological conditions.
