OVERHAUL/SERVICE Q&A

 

Why do I have to overhaul my propeller after 5 or 6 years when it has limited time since last overhaul?

We recommend you adhere to the manufacturer's published overhaul limits to protect your safety, your investment and to maximize the safe operating life of your propeller.

During normal operation, an aircraft propeller is subjected to 10 to 20 tons of centrifugal force per blade. It is necessary to have the propeller overhauled at the recommended intervals to avoid a propeller-related incident/accident that could result in serious injury or death.

What happens to a propeller during overhaul?

An overhaul, by definition, is the periodic disassembly, inspection, repair, refinish and reassembly of a propeller system.

Technicians will disassemble and conduct a thorough inspection of all reusable parts. The assessment includes visual, magnetic particle, eddy current and dye penetrant inspections. Additionally, all reusable parts are dimensionally inspected to ensure they are within tolerance after any type of repair and eliminate all evidence of scratches, nicks, burrs, corrosion and other damage. The propeller is then reassembled to factory specifications, lubricated, balanced and returned to service having complied with all applicable service documents and airworthiness directives.

I have a large nick on the edge of one of my blades, can I repair it?
Local repairs to aluminum blades may be made by an A&P mechanic, propeller repairman or the aircraft builder (experimental) in accordance with FAA Advisory Circular 43.13-1B. Composite blade inspection and repair requires specific training, equipment and techniques.
