Hartzell Trailblazer composite prop now available for your Cardinal

Hartzell Propeller's composite 78" diameter Trailblazer prop has received a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for Cessna Cardinals. The approval covers retractable gear normally aspirated and turbonormalized C-177RG Cardinals with IO-360s and IO-390s engines.

This Next Generation Advanced Structural Composite Swept-tip, Scimitar Propeller Blade is approved for Cessna Cardinal RGs with normally aspirated or turbonormalized engines to include the IO-360A1B6D, IO-360A1B6 and IO-390A1A6.

Our testing found the 78" diameter Trailblazer two-blade prop to have excellent performance. Its light weight and the composite materials result in very smooth operation. It is about seven pounds lighter than most aluminum two-blade props and up to 25 pounds lighter than some three-blade props approved for Cardinals. It's great in combination with the Cardinal Cruiser turbonormalizing system.

Rugged, Durable and Dependable
