Hartzell Propeller Inc. has received FAA approval for a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) that covers new 3-bladed propellers installed on Cessna’s pressurized P210N (1978-84) and turbocharged T210F-N (1966-84) models.
Installation of the Hartzell model HC-J3YF-1RF/F8068, 82-inch diameter Scimitar 3-blade prop on the Cessna T/P210 Series typically offers a one- to three-knot increase in cruise speed, and a 4% decrease in time to climb to 23,000 feet, when compared to the originally-installed McCauley C402 3-blade, according to Hartzell officials, who note it also reduces noise by 1.2 dB(a) when compared to the McCauley C402 3-blade, and by 0.3dB(a) compared to the McCauley C88 3-blade.
Available through Hartzell’s Top Prop program, the 2010 list price for the kit with a polished spinner is $10,500. Kits are also available with 28-volt de-ice kits at an additional cost. The new propellers also carry the Top Prop Plus Three warranty, good for three years or 1,000 hours and have a six year/2,400 hour TBO. Top Prop offers more than 60 different STC kits for a wide range of Beechcraft, Cessna, Mooney, Piper and other aircraft and has more than 15,000 kits in operation around the world.
