If you buy a new Hawker Beechcraft propeller-driven airplane in the next five years, pushing you through the air will be a Hartzell propeller. Hartzell recently signed an exclusive agreement with Hawker Beechcraft to supply its entire line of commercial piston and turboprop aircraft with constant-speed propellers.
Hartzell has been supplying the various Beechcraft-related companies since 1934, but according to the Piqua, Ohio-based manufacturer, this agreement builds on its status of sole supplier of Bonanzas, Barons, and King Airs. Hawker Beechcraft’s T-6 military trainer is not included in the deal.
Hartzell was awarded Hawker Beechcraft’s Performance Promise Champion for Customer award for its continual provision of excellent service, support, and on-time delivery last year, Hartzell said.
