Oshkosh, Wisc., July 22, 2019 – Hartzell Propeller has received a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for a new three-blade aluminum Scimitar propeller for Cessna’s A185E/F Skywagon and AgCarryall aircraft. Cessna 185 aircraft are known for stellar bush performance in the most inhospitable terrain.
Named the Voyager, the custom-designed premium performance propeller provides improved performance with up to seven knots faster cruise speed, 10 percent better take-off acceleration, and an exceptional climb rate. The new propeller is available for immediate delivery and installation
Introductory pricing is $13,900 for the new Voyager swept aluminum three-blade 86-inch diameter propeller, including polished spinner and all STC documentation. The new scimitar propeller can be reworked down to 84 inches in diameter if needed.
“I can’t wait to take the plane out to the back country and put it and our Voyager propeller through their paces,” said Hartzell Propeller President Joe Brown. His personal aircraft was utilized in the flight tests leading to the STC and that aircraft will be on display at Hartzell’s Booth 296-297 in the Main Aircraft Display Area at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, Monday July 22 through Sunday July 28.
“This replacement Voyager propeller gives Skywagon owners an opportunity to take advantage of Hartzell’s proven reliability and performance advantages,” said Hartzell Executive Vice President and General Manager JJ Frigge. “Cessna A185E/F operators can now get a longer 2,400-hour, six-year TBO and the longest propeller warranty in the business, all the way through first overhaul.”
