Hartzell Propeller growing China market; achieves TC validations for Cessna TTx, Mooney Acclaim

Hartzell Propeller Inc. has stepped up its commitment to extend the company's reach into China's growing general aviation marketplace. Recently, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) validated type certifications for Hartzell props flying on Cessna TTx and Mooney Acclaim aircraft.

“Hartzell Propeller worked closely with the Civil Aviation Administration of China to receive these important validations," said Weiqing Wang, Hartzell Propeller Managing Director for China, based in Shanghai City. “Hartzell Propeller's efforts in China are focused on working with aircraft manufacturers to seek advance approvals for propeller aircraft that are expected to receive certification for operation in this country. We certainly appreciate the professionalism and dedication exhibited by CAAC representatives,” he added.

Hartzell Propeller Validation Department Established

To support the increasing globalization of general aviation, Hartzell Propeller has established a dedicated Type Certificate Validation Department, headed by International Certification Representative Melanie Patton.

“The Validation Department is committed to developing enhanced professional relationships with the CAAC and other airworthiness authorities worldwide. We recently hosted several CAAC representatives who traveled to the United States for detailed technical meetings, in support of our next round of type certificate validations” she said.
