Hartzell Extends Prop Discounts Through 2023

Hartzell’s Largess Benefits Recreational Aviation Foundation

Hartzell Propeller—the American manufacturer of composite and aluminum aircraft propellers and related components the likes of propeller spinners, governors, and ice-protection systems—has generously furthered its support of the Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF).

The storied propeller-maker will continue to offer a $1,000 discount to RAF supporters purchasing any model of its backcountry airplane propeller line through 2023–thereby marking the discount’s third consecutive year. In addition to the $1000 savings, Hartzell—for each backcountry airplane propeller sale—will make a $250 contribution to the RAF mission.

Hartzell President JJ Frigge remarked: “We are excited to extend this special offer to RAF supporters, now for the third straight year. This is an example of our support for the thrill of backcountry flying, and the RAF’s efforts to preserve aviation access.”

The backcountry propellers offered in the RAF partnership include:

The Explorer: a three-blade “Raptor” series carbon-fiber composite propeller available for a number of experimental aircraft.

The Voyager: a three-blade, aluminum scimitar propeller optimized for Cessna 180, 182, 185, and 206 aircraft powered by certain Continental 470 engines, as well as—by dint of a recent STC—Continental 520 and 550 engines.

The Pathfinder: a three-blade “Raptor” carbon-fiber composite propeller available for the CubCrafters XCub and Carbon Cub FX, as well as the Glasair Sportsman and several other experimental aircraft.

The Trailblazer: a two-blade or three-blade carbon-fiber composite propeller available for various aircraft models from American Champion, American Legend, Aviat, Avipro, Cubcrafters, Glasair, Maule, and several additional experimental aircraft.

The aforementioned propellers are designed to maximize backcountry performance by providing better take-off acceleration, shorter take-off rolls, better climb rates, higher cruise speeds, and quieter flight.

Hartzell Propeller is the flagship company of Hartzell Aviation, an aerospace collective comprising an array of firewall-forward companies and products. In all, Hartzell Aviation comprises Hartzell Propeller, Hartzell Aerospace Welding, and Hartzell Engine Tech—each of which is committed to innovation and the continuous improvement of General Aviation products and services. The companies—to the one—are guided by the overriding principle of Built on Honor, as set down in 1917 by Hartzell Propeller founder Robert N. Hartzell.

Founded by a group of Montana pilots cognizant of the fact that the threat of recreational airstrip closure was of national concern, the Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and improvement of existing airstrips, and the creation of new public-use recreational airstrips throughout the United States.
