Propeller Info and Saftey tips from Hartzell and McCauley

Propellers – most of us use them in one form or another and we study the basic theory as part of the various FAA written exams. The various prop manufacturers have some great additional resources to learn more about these critical components of our aircraft and how to approach the related safety issues.

  • McCauley has a very nice Propeller System Technology Guide which covers theory, performance and maintenance.
  • Hartzell has a highly instructive Propeller Safety section describing propeller safety and issues that might crop up in various phases of flight. This would be a great handout/reference for flight schools and FBOs.
