Hartzell Propeller will extend its $1,000 discount to supporters of the Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF) on all new Hartzell backcountry airplane propellers, now through 2023, marking the third consecutive year of this discount. In addition to these savings, Hartzell is making a $250 contribution to the RAF mission for each of these special sales.
“We are excited to extend this special offer to RAF supporters, now for the third straight year,” said Hartzell President JJ Frigge. “In addition to providing this $1,000 discount, we will be donating $250 directly to the RAF for each plane propeller sold as a result of this special offer. This is an example of our support for the thrill of backcountry flying, and the RAF’s efforts to preserve aviation access,” he added.
RAF Chairman John McKenna said, “We are once again thankful for Hartzell’s continued support of the RAF. We absolutely love this partnership. It’s a real benefit to current RAF supporters, and a welcome incentive to becoming a new RAF supporter.”

About the Recreational Aviation Foundation
The RAF was founded by a group of Montana pilots who realized the threat of recreational airstrip closure was of national concern. They also recognized there was a need for a unified effort by pilots everywhere to protect public aviation access to places with recreational opportunities. The RAF, a 501(c)(3) organization, is dedicated to preserving and improving existing airstrips, and creating new public-use recreational airstrips throughout the United States.
