Sensenich Propeller Co., the U.S. manufacturer of wood, metal, and composite propellers, founded in 1932, announced Part 35 type certification for its G-Series ground adjustable carbon fiber propellers.
Sensenich explained in a recent press release, “Propeller options under the [type certificate] range from 72 to 82 inches in diameter to allow for installations on existing aircraft models from 125 to 180 horsepower. Current STCs utilizing the 82 in diameter allow for installation on PA-18-150 models with O-360 engines.”
The ground-adjustable hub system “permits easy, precise, and fast pitch optimization for maximum performance under a variety of operating demands and atmospheric conditions.” The stainless steel erosion shields provide protection from erosion and foreign object debris for “a long, reliable service life.”
Sensenich says the propellers’ “simple installation and operation deliver meaningful and economical improvements without the negative installation cost, service interval, and operating changes associated with constant-speed propeller conversions.”
Sensenich is currently working on additional installation approvals for Piper, Cessna, American Champion, Cub Crafters, Grumman, and other aircraft.
Prices for the carbon fiber, ground-adjustable propellers range from $1,940 to $6,350.
