Hartzell Offers Composite Props For Retrofit On Cirrus SR22

Company Says Reduced Weight Aids Performance, Noise

Owners and Operators of Cirrus SR22 series aircraft can now purchase Hartzell Propeller’s three-blade structural composite carbon fiber propeller for aircraft that were originally delivered with metal props.

This is the same ASC-II composite propeller that is incorporated on all new SR22T single engine aircraft that Cirrus delivers to customers. The three-blade propeller s with the lighter, more advanced 7605(C) carbon fiber blades and polished spinner are available through Hartzell’s Top Prop program, at a special discounted price of $23,943, or $24,249 with anti-ice boots.

“Through our Top Prop conversion program, Hartzell Propeller is providing a way for pilots to significantly improve performance of their aircraft,” said Hartzell Propeller President Joe Brown. “Generally, performance benefits available through the Top Prop program include reduced weight, shorter take-off distance, lower noise levels, better ground clearance, reduced tip erosion, increased climb rate, increased cruise speed, and smoother operation.”

In 2014, Hartzell and Cirrus Aircraft announced a five-year extension of an exclusive supplier agreement to provide propeller systems and governors for all of Cirrus Aircraft’s new prop-driven airplanes. Hartzell Propeller provides Cirrus with three-blade metal propeller systems for SR22 and three-blade composite props for SR22T aircraft.

Hartzell worked closely with Cirrus to develop high-performance, low noise two- and three-blade propellers for the SR20 and later developed a new advanced three-blade structural composite propeller. These propellers incorporate Hartzell's blended airfoil technology.
