Wipaire is proud to introduce the new Hartzell four-blade carbon composite prop, the Yukon, which offers up to a 31% decrease in total take-off distance from water and up to a 26% decrease from land.
This translates into safer take off and landings on smaller lakes and shorter runways. Cruise speed is increased at lower power settings, up to 2 knots faster, saving fuel while increasing speed. Another big improvement is in weight. Coming in at 137 lbs, it is up to 19 lbs lighter than other available props.
