FAA and EASA Certification for 5-blade Propeller on Socata TBM 700 / 850

MT-Propeller Entwicklung GmbH has yet received the FAA STC for the next generation 5-blade scimitar composite propeller MTV-27-1-E-C-F-R(P) / CFR225-55f on the Socata Model TBM700 A, B, C1, C2, N with the Engine P&WC PT6A-64, -66D.

The installation is certified by FAA STC No. SA02958NY and EASA STC No 10033038. This new STC provides increased performance (5 percent improved take-off & climb, 3-5 kts cruise with 1800 rpm), maximum durability and reliability, suitable for all weather operation.

The propeller installation:

- Provides best vibration damping characteristics for almost vibration free propeller operation

- Has bonded on stainless steel leading edges for best erosion protection of the blades

- Reduces the weight by approx. 7 lbs compared with the original metal propeller

- Provides a cooler ITT on ground with condition lever at low and high idle position

- Has no propeller speed restrictions on ground while operating in low idle

- Gives more ground clearance for less FODs

- Provides significant cabin noise and vibration reduction

- All models comply with the highest European noise regulations

The high technology natural composite blades have no life limitation and can be repaired even in case of a FOD.

MT-Propeller is the world leading natural composite propeller manufacturer with 30 propeller models from 2-blade to 6-blade hydraulically controlled variable pitch propeller, for engines producing up to 5000hp, and 2-blade to 4-blade electrically controlled variable pitch propeller, for engines producing up to 350hp as well as two blade fixed pitch propellers.

The high performance, light weight and durable MT-Propellers can be used on aircraft with piston engines and propeller turbines, as well as on airships, wind tunnels or hovercraft.

MT-Propeller is holder of over 100 STCs worldwide with more than 15.000 propeller systems flying.
