Hartzell's 96-inch four-blade aluminum propeller has been standard equipment on every KODIAK produced

Hartzell and Quest sign KODIAK sole-source propeller agreement

Hartzell Propeller Inc. and Quest Aircraft have entered into a five-year agreement for the supply of Hartzell props for the Quest KODIAK turboprop aircraft.

Hartzell's 96-inch four-blade aluminum propeller has been standard equipment on every KODIAK produced. The new agreement formalizes a relationship established in 2003 when Hartzell was selected by Quest for the prototype short takeoff and landing aircraft powered by the P&W PT6 engine.

“The KODIAK can take off in under 1,000 feet at full gross weight and climb at over 1,300 feet per minute. The robust landing gear and 19-inch propeller clearance allow the KODIAK to easily handle unimproved airstrips,” said Quest CEO Sam Hill. “Like the KODIAK, Hartzell's aluminum propellers are rugged, reliable and a good fit for our airplane.”

“The Hartzell Propeller family is very pleased to continue our excellent relationship with Quest Aircraft, a leading manufacturer of one of the most versatile airplanes flying today,” said Hartzell Propeller President Joe Brown. “We work hard to prove the performance and reliability advantages of Hartzell props to aircraft manufacturers, like Quest, and it is satisfying when they acknowledge our contributions to their success with long-term commitments.”

Since delivering the first propeller for installation on a turboprop aircraft in the 1960s, Hartzell Propeller has become the prop of choice for new aircraft and for retrofits. Hartzell has a growing selection of aluminum blade models, offering propellers for all turboprop aircraft markets, with applications for Pratt & Whitney, Honeywell, GE Aviation, And Rolls-Royce engines.

Hartzell's aluminum blade turboprop propellers are available in three-, four- and five-blade configurations utilizing either aluminum or steel hubs. With propellers certified up to 1,700 SHP at diameters more than 118 inches, Hartzell offers a broad range of turboprop propeller options.
