McFarlane Aviation Products has acquired the STC and the FAA-PMA approval to manufacture Prop Guard.
Prop Guard is made from a special high strength heat processed polymer engineered for centrifugal loads, according to company officials.
Prop Guard is a 0.018″ thick clear anti-abrasion boot that is bonded to the leading edge of the propeller.
Prop Guard is easy to install, typically taking less than 30 minutes. There is no performance loss associated with Prop Guard.
Prop Guard has been fully tested, and it is applicable for most metal propellers.
Prop Guard is STC FAA-PMA approved, and the install is considered a minor alteration (no FAA Form 337 required).
Prop Guard is sold in a kit that includes the boot, adhesion accelerator, placard, lint-free cotton cloth, complete installation instructions and a copy of the STC.
Two new repair kits are also now available to allow repair of existing Prop Guard installations. Each repair kit includes a short length of Prop Guard boot material, adhesion accelerator, lint-free cotton cloth, a spreader, and complete installation instructions. Reference P/N PG-KT-R12 for 12 inches of material and P/N PG-KT-R24 for 24 inches of material.
