  • Antonov Aircraft
    In 1994 — Hartzell five-bladed propellers
    formed part of the American contribution to the
    Antonov AN-38 multi-role transport. Functioning
    in conjunction with a high-wing, split tail design,
    the 2.85 m (9.3 ft.) propellers contribute to the
    aircraft's short field performance. The
    five-blade design maximizes acceleration
    and climb while providing faster
    response to pilot prop control inputs.
