Hartzell Displays Newest Propeller Technologies at Sun N' Fun, AERO

More Than 17 Aircraft Models Approved For Carbon Fiber Trailblazer Props

Hartzell Propeller will exhibit its next generation prop technologies at the Sun n' Fun International Fly-in and Expo April 10-15 and at AERO Friedrichshafen, April 18-21.

Hartzell's substantial investment in innovative technologies is being recognized and leveraged by new aircraft manufacturers and by after-market STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) modifiers. The company is expert at utilizing scimitar blended airfoil designs for metal prop blades and for carbon fiber structural composite blades.
"Hartzell's latest Top Prop, a three-blade swept metal propeller for the Piper Turbo Lance and Saratoga, was awarded an STC in late March," said Hartzell Propeller President Joe Brown. "It delivers significant takeoff and climb performance improvements and has terrific ramp appeal."
In addition, Hartzell's carbon fiber Trailblazer props are rapidly increasing market share and are now available on 17 aircraft models, with several more in process. Today, Hartzell Trailblazer propellers are available on:

  • American Champion Scout/Denali Scout
  • Aviat Husky
  • Avipro Bearhawk/Patrol
  • Cessna 172 (Stoots Aviation STC)
  • Cessna 177RG (Tornado Alley Turbo STC)
  • Cessna 182 (Wipaire STC with IO-550 engine)
  • Cessna 182 (Wipaire Boss 182 Conversion - with IO-580 engine)
  • Cessna 185 (Wipaire STC with IO-550D engine)
  • Cessna 206/T206H (Wipaire STC)
  • Cubcrafters XCub
  • Cubcrafters Carbon Cub FX-3
  • Cubcrafters Top Cub - CC18-180(A)
  • Extra 330 XC
  • Glasair Sportsman
  • PA-18/12 Super Cub (Professional Pilots STC)
  • Van's RV-8
  • WACO Classic Great Lakes

These aircraft and propellers, as well as many other Hartzell next generation designs, will be on the ramps later this month at Sun n' Fun in Lakeland, Fla., and at Aero Friedrichshafen in Germany. Hartzell's Sun n' Fun exhibit located at B-034, B-035 will feature a Trailblazer propeller. American aerobatic national champion aviator Mike Goulian will be available at the Hartzell booth for autographs at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 10 and he will be performing during the show in his Extra 330XC, utilizing the Hartzell Claw propeller.  
In addition to Sun n' Fun and AERO, Hartzell Propeller specialists from Piqua are traveling the globe during 2018 to bring their expertise to aviation devotees and fans at numerous trade shows and events.
Along with a full slate of air show appearances in the United States, Europe and China, the company is supporting the Red Bull Air Race Championship as its propeller technical partner at upcoming races in Europe, Asia, Russia and the United States.
