Hartzell Voyager Prop STC’d for Cessna 180/182/185/206 fleet
Hartzell Propeller has expanded the eligibility of its three-blade aluminum Voyager props. The Voyager is now STC approved for the fleet of Cessna 180/182/185/206 aircraft, powered by Continental 520 and 550 engines.
The Voyager, which Hartzell describes as having been well received by bush pilots, was previously approved for Cessna’s A185E/F Skywagon and AgCarryall aircraft.
“Inspired by enthusiastic customer acceptance since we introduced the Voyager in 2019, we decided to make it available to a much broader fleet,” said JJ Frigge, President, Hartzell.
Hartzell states the Voyager propeller, featuring swept aluminum blades, provides up to seven knots faster cruise speed, 10 per cent better take-off acceleration, an exceptional climb rate, and quieter flight relative to comparable products. With STC approval, Hartzell expects to deliver more than 50 additional Voyager propellers by the end of 2021.
Regular pricing for the 86-inch diameter Voyager propeller will be US$14,179, including polished spinner and all STC documentation. The new scimitar propeller can be reworked down to 84 inches in diameter if needed. The Voyager propeller has a 2,400-hour, six-year TBO, and what Hartzell describes as the industry’s longest propeller warranty through first overhaul.
