Test flown on the same day that the customer received it, here are some pictures of a wooden propeller that we designed and manufactured for a Grass Strip Aviation Fokker Eindecker.
This propeller demonstrates our adaptability and ability to design and manufacture truly bespoke propellers for unique aircraft and engine combinations.
This particular aircraft is fitted with a 30 hp Briggs and Stratton engine fitted with a 2.2:1 reduction drive.
We designed this propeller to match the engine HP, RPM, expected performance, airframe characteristics and to look like a propeller form the WW1 era.
Our customer tells us that he thinks the propeller is a work of art and just as importantly, it really does perform well.
The Grass Strip Aviation Eindecker is becoming very popular and loved by all who has flown one.
