-- Norwood, Massachusetts - Hartzell Propeller Inc. has become a major sponsor of the IMC Club International’
s website, enabling a far reaching overhaul and redesign of the Club’s internet presence.
“I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to Hartzell Propeller’s President Joe Brown for his and his company’s generosity. This sponsorship will allow us to move our website and its functionality to the next level, and focus on growth and further development of the Club for the benefit and safety of General Aviation” – said Radek Wyrzykowski, President of the IMC Club International, Inc.
Besides the graphic redesign, the IMC Club website will undergo functionality integration that will allow IMC Club members to utilize all its functions under one login and to further promote the IMC Club brand. All profile data for Club members will flow automatically across the platform, allowing participants seamless access to the IMC Clubs SafeBook, Knowledge Base and other membership areas without requiring multiple logins. Members will also be able to link their profiles directly with social media like FaceBook, Twitter and perform proximity searches. The proximity search feature will connect a user with other members in their area or help find a local IMC Club Chapter. The entire project is projected to take up to two months and should be ready for the exhibition of the new IMC Proficiency Center at the EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin held July 23-29, 2012.
Hartzell Propeller Inc. is the leader in advanced propeller design and manufacturing technology. They are the supplier of choice for nearly every major aircraft manufacturer.
“I share your desire to increase proficiency through hangar talk and mentoring. I depend on that myself and have concluded it is the greatest contributor to my ongoing learning. Can’t wait for Oshkosh!” – Said Joe Brown, President and Chief Operating Officer of Hartzell and its related operating companies, when asked for a comment.
The company traces its history to 1914 when a relationship between Orville Wright and Robert Hartzell led to the manufacture of the first Hartzell propeller in 1917. The company’s founding principle of "Built on Honor" has been central to their corporate values from the very beginning.
