Hartzell Propeller has appointed Palm Beach Aircraft Propeller at Palm Beach County Airport (KLNA), in West Palm Beach, Fla., as a Recommended Service Facility.
Palm Beach Aircraft Propeller began in 1982 as a family-owned business, serving aircraft owners, FBOs and repair centers throughout the world.
“Palm Beach Aircraft Propeller, like Hartzell Propeller, is a family-owned business committed to the highest standards in general aviation. It has shown it can meet Hartzell’s demanding and exacting standards and we are pleased to welcome the company into a prestigious and limited group of Recommended Service Facilities strategically located across the globe,” said Hartzell Propeller President Joe Brown.
“We hold our Recommended Service Facility Network to rigorous standards,” he continued. “In many cases, our requirements significantly exceed those of the governing airworthiness authorities. Hartzell strongly encourages its customers to use a Hartzell Recommended Service Facility for propeller repairs and overhauls.”
Palm Beach Aircraft Propeller becomes the 21st Hartzell Propeller Recommended Service Facility.
To achieve Hartzell’s Recommended Service Facility designation, the propeller maintenance facility met a number of stringent requirements, including on-site quality systems, process audits, and factory trained and highly qualified propeller experts. In addition, Palm Beach Aircraft Propeller is required to maintain Hartzell-approved specialized propeller tools and equipment along with meeting the company’s special process approvals on an ongoing basis.
