TBM 900 with Hartzell Prop at DAHER-SOCATA Factory in Tarbes, France

Hartzell and Daher-Socata achieve outstanding performance for TBM 900

Hartzell Propeller Inc. and plane maker DAHER-SOCATA have agreed to renew their long-term partnership with a five-year agreement, under which Hartzell will supply the recently introduced TBM 900 with advanced swept airfoil structural composite five-blade propellers and spinners. 

Hartzell's design group maximized blade chord thickness and sweep, resulting in thin, light and strong blades that contribute significantly to the TBM 900's exceptional performance. Hartzell's thinner airfoil is made possible due to carbon fiber's great strength, combined with the prop maker's next generation advanced structural composite and proprietary composite material monocoque construction techniques.

The new Hartzell five-blade prop is quiet in the cabin and in the pattern. Hartzell incorporates an innovative nickel erosion mesh and field replaceable nickel-cobalt erosion shield to prevent foreign object damage to its unlimited-life blades.

Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of DAHER-SOCATA's Airplane Business Unit, said, “The TBM 900 is distinguished by its comfort, speed and efficiency, and all three are improved by Hartzell's five-blade swept prop, which is quieter, speedier and more efficient. We are pleased to have Hartzell Propeller in our group of U.S. suppliers.”

“It is gratifying when a world-class aircraft manufacturer such as DAHER-SOCATA demonstrates its confidence in the quality and performance of Hartzell's advanced propellers by extending an exclusive relationship,” said Hartzell Propeller President Joe Brown. “We focus on providing customers with outstanding products and service at a fair price and we are honored that DAHER-SOCATA has recognized that performance.”
