Hartzell Propeller has entered into a five-year agreement with Hawker Beechcraft (HBC) to be the exclusive provider of constant-speed propellers for all the OEM’s new piston and turboprop commercial aircraft–the G36 Bonanza, G58 Baron and King Air C90GTx, B200GT and 350i. The agreement also includes new, higher performance propellers for the upcoming 50th anniversary Baron.

“The relationship between the two companies dates back to 1934. 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 v-p of marketing and customer services, told AIN.
