Hartzell Propeller Acquires WhirlWind Propellers

Hartzell Propeller Plans To Retain The Whirlwind Brand And Product Offerings

A prominent member of the sport aviation community has found a new home... Hartzell Propeller has acquired 'substantially all the assets' of WhirlWind Propellers Corporation, expanding Hartzell’s product portfolio into light-sport aircraft. 

Founded in 1995, WhirlWind Propellers manufactures composite constant-speed and ground-adjustable propellers for the light-sport, experimental and unmanned aircraft markets. The Company also designs proof-of-concept propellers for emerging applications. Hartzell Propeller plans to retain the WhirlWind brand and product offerings.

JJ Frigge, President of Hartzell Propeller, commented, "The acquisition allows Hartzell to further expand WhirlWind's rapid propeller development capabilities for the design, tooling and manufacturing of advanced carbon composite propellers."

Hartzell will retain the services of Jim Rust, former President of WhirlWind Propellers. Rust’s technological expertise with rapid prototyping composite propeller systems further enhances Hartzell's existing capabilities. 

Rust added, "I am excited to be part of the Hartzell Propeller team and eager to see the WhirlWind brand continue to thrive under Hartzell’s leadership."
