THE PROPELLER OVERHAUL

The propeller overhaul starts with the complete disassembly of the propeller. All of the parts are then cleaned, and paint and protective coatings are removed to allow for measuring and the proper nondestructive testing to determine airworthiness. The propeller hub is coated in alodine for corrosion protection and painted. The blades are filed in order to create the proper airfoil, and ground to remove any surface imperfections, and balanced together. We then coat the blades with alodine for corrosion protection and a new coat of paint. The propeller is then assembled using new parts, pressure tested for leaks, and statically balanced. Once the propeller is finished it looks like new. All overhauled propellers are returned to the customer with new mounting hardware, a new mounting o-ring, and a new logbook.
