Top Prop for Piper Matrix, Mirage

The latest addition to Hartzell Propeller’s Top Prop line-up is its second generation, advanced composite propeller now STC’d and

The three-blade propellers offer weight savings, through a combination of carbon fiber and Kevlar blades and its new lightweight aluminum hub. This combination saves nearly
11 pounds on the nose versus Hartzell’s first generation advanced composite propeller that is currently standard on these aircraft.

This is Hartzell’s first certification for the ASC-II approved for flight into known ice (FIKI) with its electrothermal de-ice system installed.

Price: $24,000.
