Hartzell Awarded TC for Talon Prop On Two-Seat Extra 300L

February 01 (2021

Hartzell Propeller recently received a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for its specially designed three-blade high performance Talon prop for installation on Extra 300L two-seat aerobatic aircraft. The Talon features an enhanced aerodynamic design coupled with Hartzell’s state of the art ASC-II resin transfer carbon fiber process.

The 78-inch diameter Hartzell Talon replaces the standard wood core three-blade propeller to provide a 2.5 percent increase in takeoff acceleration, five percent decrease in takeoff distance, and a five percent increase in climb performance. Hartzell’s blade technology results in low weight, low inertia, higher durability, and low life cycle costs.

The Talon consists of a unique monocoque structure of advanced composite material, consisting of carbon fiber laminates integrated into a co-molded stainless-steel shank. The outboard half of the leading edge is protected with a co-molded electroformed nickel erosion shield.

The Talon is available from prop shops, FBOs, or direct from the Hartzell Top Prop sales program. List price for the prop, spinner and STC paperwork is $29,301. Time Between Overhaul (TBO) is six years or 1,000 hours, whichever occurs first.

The Extra 300L is a Lycoming AEIO-540-powered two-seat aerobatic aircraft, with low-mounted wing and shorter fuselage. More Extra 300L aircraft have been produced than any other model. The 300L is certified under FAA and European Joint Aviation Authorities regulations.
