MT-Propeller Entwicklung GmbH has received an FAA STC for the next generation 5-blade scimitar composite propeller MTV-27-1-E-C-F-R(G)/CFRL250-55b on the Dornier Do228-100, -200 Series Series with Honeywell TPE331-5-252D, TPE331-5B-252D or TPE331-10T-511D, or TPE331-10P-511D engines.
Owners of the popular turbocharged Cessna T210L Centurion with propeller de-ice can now install one of Hartzell Propellers newest three-blade Scimitar Top Props, with a fully compatible propeller de-ice system.
The Hartzell factory-installed electro-thermal de-ice boots, as well as new propeller de-ice kits, enhance the company’s existing STC coverage for those aircraft that were originally equipped with propeller de-icing, now including turbocharged 28-volt T210L airplanes.
Data gathered from computer predictions validated improved runway acceleration to 60 knots by more than 3%, while extensive flight tests to 5,000, 10,000 and 15,000 feet showed increased initial sea level climb of 35 feet per minute, or 4%, and slightly increased cruise performance, with speeds 2 to 3 knots greater than with the T210L’s original propeller.
List prices range from $9,800 to $11,800, depending on required equipment.
