Three-blade prop option for G36s

 - July 15, 2008, 10:07 AM

Hartzell Propeller is now offering a three-bladed Top Prop propeller for the new Beechcraft Bonanza G36 piston single and all F33A, V35B, A36 and G36 Bonanzas powered by the factory original TCM IO-520 and IO-550 engines, including aircraft equipped with 28-volt electrothermal propeller de-ice systems.

The propeller is one of Hartzell’s latest blended airfoil designs made possible by employing advanced CNC milling technology to maintain the structural characteristics of the original Hartzell Bonanza blades, while incorporating aerodynamic improvements and efficiencies in the new tip section. The scimitar-shaped, swept-tip blades are free of life-limiting airworthiness directives and come with the longest TBO available for a Bonanza propeller.

Like the previous Top Prop for Bonanzas, the new STC propeller conversion comes with a 2,400-hour/six-year TBO with the exclusive Hartzell Plus Three warranty, which provides a full three years or 1,000 hours of coverage.
The complete kit costs $9,995 without de-ice and between $10,495 and $11,495 with electrothermal de-ice, depending on the system it replaces. Prices include the PHC-C3YF-1RF/F8068(K) model propeller, highly polished spinner and STC paperwork.
