In addition to the savings for RAF supporters, the propeller manufacturer is making a $250 contribution to RAF for every member who buys a new Hartzell prop for backcountry flying until the end of 2022.
“This exclusive offer to RAF members is an excellent way for Hartzell Propeller to continue our long-standing devotion to the excitement and fun of backcountry flying,” said Hartzell President JJ Frigge. “We are excited to be part of the RAF legacy, and we salute their efforts to halt the closure of airstrips and even build some new ones.”
The propellers eligible for the discount include:
- The Explorer three-blade “Raptor” series carbon fiber composite available for a number of experimental aircraft
- The Voyager three-blade aluminum scimitar optimized for Cessna 180, 182, 185, and 206
- The Pathfinder three-blade “Raptor” carbon fiber composite available for Cubcrafters XCub and Carbon Cub FX, as well as the Glasair Sportsman and several other experimental aircraft
- The Trailblazer two-blade or three-blade carbon fiber composite available for various aircraft models from American Champion, American Legend, Aviat, Avipro, Cubcrafters, Glasair, Maule, and several other experimental aircraft.
Each of these propellers is designed to maximize performance for backcountry operations, including shorter takeoff rolls and better climb rates, according to Hartzell officials.
