AKRON, Colo. – Redline Aviation has added propeller overhaul services to its existing propeller governor business. The prop business will operate as Redline Propeller. Certification allows Redline Propeller to repair and overhaul McCauley, Hartzell and Sensenich propellers in five to seven working days in most cases.
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.
MT-Propeller Entwicklung GmbH has received an FAA STC for the next generation 5-blade scimitar composite propeller MTV-27-1-E-C-F-R(G)/CFRL250-55b on the Dornier Do228-100, -200 Series Series with Honeywell TPE331-5-252D, TPE331-5B-252D or TPE331-10T-511D, or TPE331-10P-511D engines.
Owners of the popular turbocharged Cessna T210L Centurion with propeller de-ice can now install one of Hartzell Propellers newest three-blade Scimitar Top Props, with a fully compatible propeller de-ice system.
The Hartzell factory-installed electro-thermal de-ice boots, as well as new propeller de-ice kits, enhance the company’s existing STC coverage for those aircraft that were originally equipped with propeller de-icing, now including turbocharged 28-volt T210L airplanes.
Data gathered from computer predictions validated improved runway acceleration to 60 knots by more than 3%, while extensive flight tests to 5,000, 10,000 and 15,000 feet showed increased initial sea level climb of 35 feet per minute, or 4%, and slightly increased cruise performance, with speeds 2 to 3 knots greater than with the T210L’s original propeller.
List prices range from $9,800 to $11,800, depending on required equipment.
