The Extra 300 series is considered by many to be the most successful certified sport, performance, and unlimited category aerobatic aircraft in its class. Now, Extra pilots can get a performance boost with Hartzell’s three-blade Talon propeller for the Extra 330SC, an evolution beyond the popular Hartzell Claw propeller. Newly STC-approved for the Extra 300L two-seat aerobatic aircraft, the next-generation Talon propeller features an enhanced aerodynamic design that results in low weight, low inertia, higher durability, and low life cycle costs.
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.
The Talon aerobatic aircraft propeller is available now from prop shops, FBOs, or direct from the Hartzell Top Prop program.
Aviation superstar Michael Goulian was the Talon’s launch customer and has flown the propeller on his single-seat Extra ever since. “I have made a living flying Hartzell props in aerobatic shows and very competitive air races for years,” Goulian said.
“My flights with Hartzell’s Talon showed an increase in performance, while also contributing to crisper execution of the aerobatic maneuvers that are the hallmark of my show. The smoothness and responsiveness of this propeller are second to none.”
