Classic Aero-TV: Hartzell Aviation Formed

From 2022 (YouTube Version): Famed Propeller Manufacturer Rebrands

Hartzell, the storied and inveterate American manufacturer of aircraft propeller systems, has been reorganized under the auspices of Tailwind Technologies Inc. The emergent entity, Hartzell Aviation, encompasses a growing number of brands to include: Hartzell Propeller, Hartzell Aerospace Welding, and Hartzell Engine Tech.

United under the Hartzell Aviation banner, the trio of historic aerospace concerns stands ready to ply its considerable expertise and experience to the advancement of the General Aviation industry.

Hartzell co-president James W. Brown III states: “The independent operating companies and products under the Hartzell Aviation banner will carry on a strong and rich tradition, with a history dating back to the Wright Brothers, when Orville encouraged his neighbor Robert N. Hartzell to begin manufacturing airplane propellers.”

Hartzell co-president Joseph W. Brown adds: “This newly christened organization, with its iconic Hartzell companies and brand names, is guided by the overriding principle of Built on Honor, which reflects our commitment to quality, performance, and support in everything we do.”

Hartzell Aviation’s flagship company, Hartzell Propeller, is a global leader in advanced aircraft propeller design and manufacturing. The company’s air-screws adorn a gamut of aircraft that stretches from Cessna’s 172 to Lockheed’s C-130. The division is headquartered in Piqua, Ohio.


Egan, Minnesota-based Hartzell Aerospace Welding specializes in general aviation aircraft exhaust systems and engine mount repair. The company’ core competencies include certified welding, precision machining, and sheet-metal fabrication. Hartzell Aerospace Welding recently acquired Canadian welding outfit Acorn Welding.

Hartzell Engine Tech—formerly Hartzell Engine Technologies—offers a product portfolio comprising Janitrol Aero, Fuelcraft, Plane-Power, Sky-Tec, and AeroForce Turbocharger Systems. Subject brands provide engine accessories and heating solutions to the general aviation industry. Based in Montgomery, Alabama, Hartzell Engine Tech enjoys a well-earned reputation for precise engineering, manufacturing, inspection, and certification guarantee quality and control.

The creation of Hartzell Aviation synergizes the three organizations’ core competencies and stands to genuinely better the safety, profitability, and pleasures of General Aviation.
