Piqua, Ohio, June 23, 2015 – Hartzell Propeller Inc. has translated key propeller owner manuals into Mandarin, the official spoken language of the People’s Republic of China. The propeller manuals cover a number of aircraft approved for flight in China by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).
“This latest initiative by Hartzell Propeller demonstrates that the company is committed to Chinese owners, operators and mechanics,” said Weiqing (Max) Wang, Hartzell Propeller Managing Director for China, based in Shanghai City. “We have completed translations of propeller owner manuals into Mandarin for the most popular turboprop and piston-powered aircraft which come equipped with our propellers.”
The translated Hartzell Propeller turbine manuals include Manual No. 139 for Steel Hub Turbine Propellers with Aluminum Blades and No. 149 for Lightweight Turbine Propellers with Aluminum Blades. In addition, Manual No. 115 N for “Compact” Models with Aluminum Blades covers nearly all the Hartzell-equipped piston engine aircraft operating in China.
All Hartzell Propeller Owner Manuals are available for free download in the Reference Library on Hartzell’s website at hartzellprop.com/services/product-support-library/manuals/.
