PIQUA, Ohio — March 2, 1994 — The Hartzell Service Center announced today that it received Joint Aviation Authority (JAA) certification from officials in the Netherlands at the end of 1993. (Registration # SJ3R843L)
As such, the Hartzell Service Center is an approved “… source for maintenance of European operated aircraft and /or components in accordance with JAR 145.10 in the Joint Aviation Authorities Administrative and guidance material, Section Two, Part Four.”
The Hartzell Service Center and its parent, Hartzell Propeller Inc., are two of only a handful of U.S. based organizations that have received European certification so far. Over 400 U.S. repair stations have submitted applications. The JAA is a group of primarily European countries that have banded together to provide a central and consistent source for aviation related regulation and oversight.
Due to a significant installed base overseas (Hartzell exported into 42 countries last year), the Hartzell Service Center handles a large amount of propeller overhaul and service work in Europe. Operators of Hartzell equipped aircraft in Europe will continue to be assured of a source for factory quality parts, service, overhauls and exchange props through the Hartzell Service Center.
Hartzell Propeller Inc. is the world’s leading manufacturer of propeller systems, enjoying an 85 percent market share on corporate turboprops and a 60 percent share on turboprop airliners. The 76-year-old company is also well-known for its design leadership having introduced the industry’s first full-feathering propellers for light twins, the first fully-reversing propellers for corporate turboprops, and the industry’s first composite structure blades.
