Hartzell expands engine range for Voyager props on Cessna Skywagon
Hartzell Propeller has expanded the use of its three-blade aluminum Voyager prop, which, explains the company, is popular with bush pilots. The Voyager was previously approved for other Cessna 180/182/185/206 aircraft powered by the Continental 520 and 550 engines.
The Voyager is now STC approved for Cessna 180 aircraft, powered by Continental 470-A (S/N 41000 and higher) -J, -R, and -S engines. This includes models 180 and models C – J with standard engines.
“Inspired by customer acceptance since we introduced the Voyager in 2019, we are continuing our efforts to make it available to a much broader fleet,” said JJ Frigge, President, Hartzell Propeller.
Hartzell explains the custom-designed Voyager propeller provides premium performance offering the same or better cruise speeds, increased take-off acceleration, and an exceptional climb rate. It features swept scimitar aluminum blades, continues the company, designed for optimal performance, specifically for these airplanes.
Hartzell is offering the 86-inch diameter Voyager propeller for US$16,561, including polished spinner and all STC documentation. The Voyager propeller has a 2,400-hour, six-year TBO.
