MT-Propeller has received an FAA STC for a next-generation 4-blade scimitar composite propeller on the Piper PA-31P Navajo with the Lycoming TIGO-541-E series engine.
The new STC provides improved performance, maximum durability and reliability and is suitable for all weather operations, company officials said.
According to company officials, the propeller installation:
- Provides best vibration damping characteristics for almost vibration free propeller operation
- Has bonded on stainless steel leading edges for best erosion protection of the blades
- Reduces the weight by approximately 25 lbs compared with the original metal propeller
- Gives more ground clearance for less FODs.
- Provides cabin noise and vibration reduction
The high-technology natural composite blades have no life limitation and can be repaired even in case of a FOD, officials add.
