Hartzell Trailblazer Prop Upgrades

Available for the Cessna 182, Cessna 185 and Cessna 206!

Ready for a prop upgrade? Maybe the Hartzell Trailblazer carbon fiber composite propeller is just what you’ve been missing! Benefits of the Trailblazer propeller include a significant weight reduction, improved take-off performance and no RPM limitation. This propeller is truly a powerhouse that will help you get the best performance possible out of your aircraft.

  • Durable, field-replaceable nickel cobalt leading edge
  • Nickel erosion screen for foreign object damage protection
  • Thinner blade with a wider chord for improved performance
  • Designed to be quieter than comparable propellers
  • Carbon fiber composition is 5-10x stronger than natural fiber propeller cores

The Trailblazer prop pulls hard and really performs. It’s an improvement in every regard, from weight to thrust to climb performance, and that makes it a great prop for any performance application, whether on floats or wheels. Its shape and design also make it a quiet prop, which keeps your neighbors happy.

Trailblazer for the Cessna 182

The new carbon fiber composite Hartzell Trailblazer series 82″ propeller is standard equipment with our Boss 182 Lycoming IO-580 engine conversion in both landplane and seaplane configurations. We are pleased to offer this outstanding propeller for IO-550 floatplanes as well.

  • 30% decrease in water take-off at full gross and 17% decrease on land
  • 10% increase in rate of climb when compared to a traditional metal Hartzell propeller

Propeller Pitch Locks for the Cessna Caravan

The pitch lock system is approved for Caravans with the 3-blade McCauley 3GFR34C703/106GA-0 propeller installed under Supplemental Type Certificates SP033376CH and SA03379CH.

Pitch locks provide additional safety by improving the close-quartering control of a floatplane, which is critical when docking. The pitch locks prevent the propeller from going to high pitch automatically upon engine shutdown.
