Hartzell Propeller has announced it will continue to offer its $1,000 discount on all new Hartzell backcountry aircraft propellers for supporters of the Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF) throughout 2024. In tandem with these savings, Hartzell Propeller will contribute $250 to the RAF mission for each special sale, supporting RAF’s goal of preserving backcountry aviation access.
JJ Frigge, President of Hartzell, said in a release, “This exclusive discount and our contribution to the RAF exemplify our commitment to the adventure of flight and the RAF’s mission to maintain aviation access to the backcountry.”
RAF chairman John McKenna echoed the sentiment, saying, “Hartzell’s continued support of the RAF is a genuine benefit to our supporters and serves as a powerful incentive for new RAF supporters.”
The RAF is a nonprofit dedicated to protecting and preserving backcountry airstrips across the U.S.
The backcountry propellers eligible for the discount include:
The Voyager: A three-blade aluminum scimitar optimized for the Cessna 180, 182, 185, and 206 models powered by certain Continental 470 engines, and Continental 520 and 550 engines under a recent STC.
The Pathfinder: A three-blade “Raptor” carbon fiber composite available for the Cubcrafters XCub and Carbon Cub FX, as well as the Glasair Sportsman, American Legend, and several other experimental aircraft.
The Trailblazer: A two-blade or three-blade carbon fiber composite available for various aircraft from American Champion, American Legend, Aviat, Avipro, Cubcrafters, Glasair, Maule, and several other experimental aircraft.
These propellers are meticulously designed to enhance backcountry performance, fostering shorter takeoff rolls and improved climb rates.
