Hartzell Propeller Inc.

The global leader
in advanced propeller design
and manufacturing technology

A propeller conversion is one of the smartest investments you can make for your aircraft. Hartzell Propeller Top Prop STC Conversions allow you to upgrade to our innovative new designs featuring scimitar blades, blended airfoils, and rugged structural composite materials.

A lot has changed since the 1940's when Hartzell began manufacturing aluminum blades, with one of the most significant changes being in the advancement of blade design capabilities. This allowed for the introduction of the "blended airfoil" design in 2002. With this technology, Hartzell engineers are able to design a blade that maximizes low-speed thrust while optimizing the tip design to reduce noise levels.

The Scimitar blade design wasn't developed by Hartzell, but we've certainly taken it to a new level. Designed to maximize cruise performance while reducing noise, Hartzell Scimitar blades also have a ramp appeal that's hard to ignore.

78 inch diameter 2-bladed aluminum hub propeller
2400 hour / 6 year TBO
47 pounds (propeller and spinner)
Placarded limitations: None!

Replaces:

From Tim Roehl, president of General Aviation Modifications Inc., of Ada, Okla., which holds the new STC:

Our testing found the Trailblazer two-blade prop to have excellent performance. Its light weight and the composite materials result in very smooth operation. It is about seven pounds lighter than most aluminum two-blade props and up to 25 pounds lighter than some three-blade props approved for Cardinals. It's great in combination with our "Cardinal Cruiser" turbonormalizing system by sister company Tornado Alley Turbo.

From JJ Frigge, Hartzell Executive Vice President:

C-177RG Cardinals outfitted with new Hartzell composite Trailblazer props possess excellent climb and cruise performance, across the board. General Aviation Modifications Inc. is also making both polished aluminum and lighter composite spinners available with this kit.
