The lightweight Raptor five-blade composite propeller from Hartzell has been specifically designed to reduce overall weight and improve the TBM 960’s takeoff distance, climb and cruise speeds.
New aircraft equipped with the latest props from Hartzell Propeller will be on static display when the 2022 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) convenes here Oct. 18-20. The broad presence reflects Hartzell’s deep investments in advanced aerodynamic propellers with cutting-edge improvements in performance and multiple long-term relationships with a wide range of aircraft manufacturers.
“For this year’s NBAA-BACE, Hartzell props are to be found on many of the propeller-driven business aircraft on display,” said Hartzell Propeller President JJ Frigge. “Our OEM and aftermarket modifier customers are a who’s who of the business aircraft industry and lead the way when it comes to higher performing turboprop and piston aircraft,” he added.
Hartzell Propeller’s exhibit and support staff will be at Booth 4443 in the Orlando Convention Center. The company will have its executives, sales and engineering teams and product support representatives in attendance. Additionally, its Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) Business Development and New Technology office will be connecting with the AAM community at NBAA-BACE.
