  • Hartzell to supply propellers for new Avanti EVO

    News | 07 Aug 2014 11:11 | Kate Sarsfield

    Hartzell Propeller will supply new lightweight propellers to Piaggio Aero for its third generation P.180 Avanti, The EVO twin-pusher will have highly swept, wide-chord aluminium alloy propellers - each 85" in diameter - that, when combined with changes to the nacelle and engine exhaust geometry, reduce external noise by five dBA, says Piaggio. This represents a 68% improvement over the its Avanti II predecessor. Cabin noise is also lowered by 20%, or one dBA, thanks in large part to Hartzell’s five-blade scimitar design.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Hartzell-to-supply-propellers-for-new-Avanti-EVO-402467/
