MT-Propeller announced the company’s answer to the increasing challenge of sourcing old airworthy propeller parts for aging North American F–82 Twin Mustang and P–51 Mustang warbirds with engines up to 2,200 shaft horsepower.

The new four-blade Warbird MTV-4-1 Propeller is currently in service on an F–82 and has amassed numerous hours flying across the United States to various airshows. The propeller can also be installed on the P–51 Mustang.

The new propeller is designed to look like the original classic warbird propeller, but the MTV-4-1 blades are made of proprietary composite material engineered to have unlimited life. The propeller is also made with an aluminum hub and steel spline adapter for use with the #50 spline. The MTV-4-1 is certified in Europe (FAA certification is pending) for installations that, according to the company, “will cover most of the applications requiring such a propeller system.”

Based in Germany, MT-Propeller currently produces 30 certified propellers for use on piston and turbine aircraft, from hydraulic and electric controlled variable-pitch propellers as well as two-blade fixed-pitch propellers.
