Support from Hartzell Propeller experts

Your aircraft propeller is a major investment in the safety, performance, and appearance of your airplane. That’s why it’s so important to ensure it’s only handled by professionals with the knowledge and expertise needed to service your specific propeller model. At the Hartzell Service Center, our highly skilled and trained propeller technicians average 19 years of experience exclusively with Hartzell propellers.

We specialize in servicing both aluminum and composite propeller blades, with the capability, experience, and state-of-the-art equipment to execute even the most difficult repairs. And, just like our Recommended Service Facilities, we hold our in-house service team to the highest standards of safety, quality, and accuracy.

Choosing the Hartzell Service Center also means Hartzell’s product support, engineering, manufacturing, and quality teams are nearby to observe any unusual issues first hand, make determinations, and develop solutions on-site when appropriate. Customer service is our top priority, and our understanding of all things Hartzell is unparalleled!

Factory surface treatments

When you send your propeller to the Hartzell Service Center for an airplane propeller overhaul, you can expect your finished prop to be returned in “like new” condition. That’s because we use the same inspection techniques and surface treatments as the factory where your airplane propeller was originally manufactured!

The Hartzell Service Center also features a full immersion penetrant line, which ensures the entire surface of the propeller blades and hubs are flawless. Aircraft propeller overhauls also get completely new plating or are anodized for refreshed corrosion protection. We even utilize an automated painting system to perfectly repaint your propeller blades in the original paint scheme.

Extensive parts inventory

At Hartzell, we understand that many of our customers’ flight schedules can’t be delayed by waiting for a spare part to arrive. The Hartzell Service Center’s proximity to our manufacturing facility ensures that needed parts are available quickly, without the added time and expense of shipping.

Ability to fly in or ship your prop

Pilots are invited to fly into the Piqua Airport/Hartzell Field (I17) to have their propellers serviced at the nearby Hartzell Service Center. Our facility is within easy driving distance from several fascinating aviation attractions to visit while your prop is being serviced, including the United States Air Force Museum at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, the Aviation Hall of Fame, and the Wright Brothers National Museum.

Fly-in customers can also take advantage of Ohio’s sales tax exemption for general aviation aircraft and our specialized dynamic propeller balancing service for the smoothest flight possible.

Our services aren’t limited to geographical boundaries. Customers may choose our convenient pickup and delivery services, and we’re happy to ship to customers around the world. Additionally, we offer an exchange program for our customers requiring the ultimate in convenience with minimum downtime.
