At Hartzell Propeller, we manufacture propellers but aviation safety is our top priority. As the industry leader in aircraft propeller systems for over 100 years, we know that thousands of owners and pilots worldwide count on our propellers to deliver optimal performance and safety in flight.

While Hartzell propellers are engineered to provide a long service life, we encourage customers to be vigilant about preventative maintenance and follow a regular propeller overhaul schedule to protect the safety and performance of their propeller. Even propellers with low operating hours or those stored in a heated hangar are subject to damage over time such as corrosion and seal aging. In most cases, this internal damage can only be detected during a complete propeller disassembly and inspection during an overhaul.

To provide the highest quality service to our customers around the world, Hartzell has assembled a global network of Recommended Service Facilities (RSF) that meet our qualifications to properly service and maintain Hartzell products. All selected RSFs are verified to meet our rigorous standards, which include:

  • Passing Hartzell’s regular on-site quality systems and process audits
  • Having trained and qualified technicians who attend required training updates at Hartzell
  • Maintaining necessary approved tools and equipment
  • Maintaining Hartzell special process approvals

Located throughout the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, Hartzell’s Recommended Service Facilities guarantee that owners and operators are never more than a short flight or drive away from a repair center.

Hartzell recently added another industry-leading service facility to our growing support team: Texas Aircraft Propeller & Accessories. The company, which is based at Pearland Regional Airport (KLVJ) near Houston, is a leader in propeller and governor overhaul, repair and sales.

With more than 115 years of combined experience in the overhaul of both piston and turbine engine aircraft propellers, Texas Aircraft Propeller & Accessories offers high-quality overhaul and repair services for Hartzell owners and operators in the Southern United States. Technicians at the company regularly attend Hartzell training to ensure that they are up to date with all product and technical improvements.
