Piqua, Ohio, June 16, 2015 – Hartzell Propeller will pick the winner of its Top Prop Trailblazer Sweepstakes in a random drawing at EAA AirVenture next month in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

The winner will be able to choose between a three-day backcountry flying adventure or a seaplane rating. The prize package includes transportation, lodging and meals for the winner and a guest in addition to the cost of the winner’s chosen flight experience.

“Right now the odds are very good,” said Hartzell Propeller President Joe Brown. “With about 1,000 pilot entrants to date the chances of winning are certainly attractive. However, you can still enter between now and the July 22 drawing and announcement at Oshkosh.”

The sweepstakes is limited to U.S. pilots age 21 or older with a current medical. Qualified pilots can register online at or in person at Hartzell’s exhibit Booth 296-297 July 20-21 at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh. The winner does not need to be present to win.

Brown added, “With the support and assistance of our cosponsors and partners one lucky winner is going to experience the flying adventure of a lifetime, along with some hangar tales to share with friends back home.”
