Hartzell and RAF Agreement Highlights Recreational Flying at EAA 2021
Hartzell Propeller's agreement with the Recreational Aviation Foundation, which provides special $1,000 discounts on all new Hartzell backcountry propellers sold to RAF members, will be featured at EAA AirVenture 2021. RAF is a national organization headquartered in Bozeman, MT, dedicated to preserving, improving and creating airstrips for recreational access.
“Highlighting this exclusive offer to RAF members is a great way for Hartzell Propeller to return to participating in public aviation venues following the hiatus brought about by the pandemic," says JJ Frigge, company president. "As part of our commitment to the excitement and fun of backcountry flying, we will continue this promotion through the end of 2021."
The propellers offered in this partnership include:
- The Voyager, a 3-blade metal scimitar propeller designed for the Cessna 180, 182, 185 and 206 fleet
- The Trailblazer, a 2-blade composite prop available for the Aviat Husky, American Champion Scout, Maule M-7-235 and many experimental aircraft
- The Explorer, a 3-blade composite prop available for a number of experimental aircraft
- The Pathfinder, a 3-blade composite prop available on the Cubcrafters XCub and Carbon Cub FX, as well as several experimental aircraft.
Each propeller is designed to maximize performance for backcountry operations, including shorter take-off rolls and better climb rates.
“Through this new promotion, Hartzell’s commitment will be an exceptional benefit to current RAF members and an extremely welcome incentive to becoming a new RAF member,” says RAF chairman, John McKenna. "In addition to providing these member discounts, Hartzell Propeller will make a $250 contribution directly to the RAF organization for every member who buys a new Hartzell prop for backcountry flying."
"We are excited to be a part of the legacy established by the committed pilots of the RAF. They have stopped the closure of a number of airstrips and even built new ones, and we salute them in those efforts," Frigge says.
