RAF supporters with the popular O-470 model engine will be thrilled to learn that Hartzell Propeller has expanded the applicability of its popular three-blade aluminum Voyager props. The Voyager is now STC approved for Cessna aircraft powered by Continental 470-A (s/n 41000 and higher) -J, -R, and -S engines. This includes models C – J with standard engines.
“The Voyager is a real tribute to Hartzell Propeller’s commitment to backcountry pilots. It shows that they are paying attention to what the market is looking for, they hear what we’re saying, and they understand,” said RAF Chairman John McKenna.
“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 Hartzell Propeller President JJ Frigge. “We are also excited to partner with the RAF to offer its supporters a $1,000 discount off the regular price of Voyager props now until the end of 2023.” In addition to this generous RAF offer, for each of these sales Hartzell Propeller is contributing $250 to the RAF to support its mission to preserve, improve, and create airstrips for recreational access.
Hartzell explains that 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 designed for optimal performance, specifically for these airplanes.
Cessna backcountry adventurers are encouraged to contact Hartzell Propeller or one of its Recommended Service Facilities to order the Voyager propeller and all STC documentation offered as part of Hartzell’s Top Prop Performance Conversions line.
“Hartzell really hit the nail on the head with this one. I’ve had a number of different propellers on my 185, and the Voyager has outperformed them in all quadrants. Not to mention, it’s a great looking propeller,” McKenna added.
