Piqua, Ohio, April 2, 2019 — Hartzell Propeller’s comprehensive line of carbon fiber composite props for key European aircraft manufacturers will be featured at the company’s exhibit at the upcoming Aero Friedrichshafen, the global air show for General Aviation. Hartzell will have an exhibit in Hall/Stand No. A3-116 April 10-13.
“Our world class structural composite portfolio offers myriad advantages for many of Europe’s leading OEM’s, including Blackshape, Diamond, Pilatus, and Daher,” said Hartzell Propeller EVP & GM JJ Frigge. “Hartzell Propeller has offerings for the entire European market range, from two- and three-blade ultra-lightweight Bantam props for Rotax and the growing stable of diesel engines as well as the growing range of electric and hybrid-electric aircraft, to sophisticated five-blade props for more powerful 1,000+ hp turboprops.”
The Hartzell line of structural composite props offers enhanced low end thrust, less noise and vibration along with optimal performance and value for the full fleet of top European brands. The company’s carbon fiber material is five to 10 times stronger than blades that still use wood for their core.
Hartzell’s thinner airfoil designs are fine tuned for optimal performance and longer service life in addition to having stunning ramp appeal. They also offer state-of-the-art wedge shank design and stainless-steel alloy shank construction.
“It is easy to see why Hartzell is the propeller of choice for European aircraft manufacturers,” Frigge said. “Hartzell enhances the power of Pilatus, the speed of TBM, the performance of Diamond, and the sportiness of Blackshape.”
Hartzell Propeller is the global leader in advanced technology aircraft propeller design and manufacturing for business, commercial and government customers. The company designs next generation propellers with innovative “blended airfoil” technology and manufactures them with revolutionary machining centers, robotics and custom resin transfer molding curing stations.
