Piper Aircraft and Hartzell Propeller have announced collaboration on the certification of a five-bladed composite propeller for the Piper Meridian and M500 through a supplemental type certificate. Achievement of the STC for both Piper products is anticipated by the end of fourth quarter this year.

“The Hartzell Propeller five-bladed prop was designed with the intention of enhancing flight performance,” says Drew McEwen, vp of sales and marketing at Piper.

“This composite prop will help increase climb rate and decrease noise, with the secondary benefit of elevating ramp aesthetics. It is a win, win situation for our products.”
