Hartzell Propeller next public appearance for its technical experts, sales team and executive leaders will be at the SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo, April 5-10 at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport (KLAL) in Florida. Hartzell’s exhibit space will be located at B-034/035. Hartzell’s display will focus on backcountry flying, and will feature a carbon fiber Trailblazer propeller and an aluminum Voyager prop. The company will have experts on hand to answer questions about any Hartzell prop.

“The Trailblazer has been around for eight years now and is one of the most popular two- and three-blade propellers in all of General Aviation. It is favored by private pilots, OEMs and modifiers for backcountry and bush flying,” said Hartzell Propeller President JJ Frigge. 

“The Voyager is now STC approved for the large fleet of Cessna 180/182/185/206 aircraft, powered by Continental 520 and 550 engines. The Voyager, which has been well received by bush pilots, was previously approved for Cessna’s A185E/F Skywagon and AgCarryall aircraft,” Frigge added.

Highlighting Hartzell Propeller’s focus on backcountry flying, the prop manufacturer is extending a $1,000 discount to members of the Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF) on all new Hartzell backcountry propellers. In addition to the savings for RAF supporters, the propeller manufacturer is making a $250 contribution to the RAF mission for every member who buys a new Hartzell prop for backcountry flying, until the end of 2022.
