Piqua, Ohio – December 12, 2009…. Hartzell Propeller Inc. has signed an agreement with Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) for the exclusive supply of constant-speed propellers to all of its new piston and turboprop commercial aircraft.
The agreement is for a minimum of five years, and covers the full range of new-build HBC aircraft: G36 Bonanza, G58 Baron and the King Air C90GTx, B200GT and 350i aircraft. The agreement also includes new, higher performance propellers for the 50th anniversary Baron to be introduced next year.
Beginning in 1934 the successful history between the two companies will continue as this new agreement will see Hartzell maintain its role as HBC’s sole supplier of propeller systems for all of their propeller-driven aircraft.
Last year, Hartzell was awarded HBC’s Performance Promise Champion for Customer award for its continual provision of excellent service, support, and on-time delivery.
Mike Disbrow, Hartzell’s senior VP marketing and customer services, said, “Our agreement with Hawker Beechcraft solidifies a very long business partnership that will benefit our mutual customers now and into the future.”
Hartzell Propeller Inc. is widely recognized as the leader in advanced propeller design and manufacturing technology. The company has recently developed the next generation of propeller designs based upon innovative “blended airfoil” technology and is manufacturing these blades on revolutionary machining centers to provide mission-optimized performance for its customers. Hartzell traces its beginnings in 1917 to a business relationship with Orville Wright, and was founded on the principal of Built on Honor - a tradition that continues today.
Hartzell Propeller Inc. has received FAA approval of a STC that covers a new 3-bladed propeller conversion kit for the Beechcraft Baron 55 fleet.
Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) today announced it will begin delivering the first of 12 specially equipped 50th Anniversary Beechcraft Baron models in August.
