Propeller Systems

Propeller systems for today’s turboprop-powered aircraft provide thrust that enables the flight of an aircraft. Propeller Systems provides complete solutions including blades, hubs, and digital electronic controls that incorporate advanced aerodynamics, structures, control dynamics, software and de-icing Components.

Propeller technology has progressed through the years to its current state-of-the-art use of composite blades, digital controls, and individual blade replacement systems. Engineers perform system design, integration, detailed design, testing and certification of the complete systems.

Key benefits of the systems include reduced weight, reduced fuel consumption, less noise, increased reliability and performance, and longer intervals between maintenance.​
