Hartzell Propeller upgrade installation kits are available for all horsepower and horsepower upgrades, including 244 hp, 280 hp, and 310 hp.
“Increased performance benefits available through Hartzell Propeller’s Mooney Top Prop program include reduced weight, shorter take-off distance, increased climb rate, increased cruise speed, and smoother operation,” said Hartzell Propeller President Joe Brown.
STC SA03024CH allows installation of the aluminum three-blade scimitar propeller developed especially for the Mooney Acclaim Type S. It is now available through Hartzell’s Top Prop program for M20R, S, and all versions of the Mooney TN.
The propeller offers lighter weight and a performance enhancement of as much as 5 KTAS in the Acclaim. It is available plain or with TKS ice protection. An anti-ice slinger kit can also be included for conversion from the two-blade propeller. Kit prices run from $12,700 to $15,300.
STC SA02482CH allows the installation of Hartzell’s N7605C-2 Advanced Structural Composite ASCII three-blade propeller. In addition to better performance than many of the earlier models, the lighter 64 pound weight is a plus along with increased durability and repairability of the carbon fiber blades with impact resistant nickel-cobalt leading edges.
It is available plain or with TKS ice protection. An anti-ice slinger kit can also be included for conversion from the two-blade propeller. Pricing on the all carbon ASCII structural composite propellers for Mooney aircraft ranges from $22,900 to $25,000.
