A new Cessna 206 Top Prop 3-blade propeller kit is now available from Hartzell Propeller Inc.
The STC covers most normally-aspirated floatplanes and landplanes manufactured from 1964 through to 1977, as well as most Turbo 206 floatplanes delivered between 1964 to 1973. The STC adds 82-, 84- and 86-diameter options to conversion kits already available from Hartzell for the 206.
This new development in propeller engineering is applicable to more than 1,500 airplane owners, according to Hartzell officials.
The 206 is often described by Cessna as the “sport-utility vehicle of the air.” The plane’s powerful engine, rugged construction and large cabin have made it popular with bush and remote area operators, both commercial and private. The aircraft is often used in some of the world’s harshest environments.
Available in 86, 84 and 82 inch diameters, the kits include one 3-blade propeller (HC-C3YF-1RF/F8468AR, -2R or -4R), a polished spinner (A-2295-1P) and an STC document set (SA02752CH-D). The propeller kits will replace short hub McCauley models C58, C78, C79, C90, and C230. To facilitate ease of use for owner/operators, they will be available bolt-on ready and sold as a complete kit. Conversions are available for Cessna P206(A), U206 – U206F & U206G through s/n U206004074, TP206A, TU206A – TU206E & TU206F through s/n U20602199. All kits are priced at $9,750 for 2009 purchases.
