Sensenich Propeller announces Part 35 Type Certification for their G-Series ground-adjustable carbon fiber propellers
This advancement represents the culmination of 90 years of continual development in American propeller design, testing, and manufacturing. This has allowed Sensenich to deliver the latest aerodynamic and material improvements previously available only in more complex and costly propellers to the common aviator.
Propeller options under this T.C. 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 inch diameter allow for installation on PA-18-150 models with O-360 engines. Sensenich is excited to pursue additional installation approvals for Piper, Cessna, American Champion, Cub Crafters, Grumman, and more.
Sensenich’s lightweight composite blades incorporate a swept scimitar profile and the latest proprietary airfoil technology to maximize performance while reducing acoustic signature. Advanced carbon fiber monocoque construction results in weight reduction of 15 to 20 pounds compared to fixed-pitch aluminum and 30 to over 50 pounds compared to constant-speed propeller installations. Beyond the potential useful load advantages, this lower rotating mass allows faster throttle and control response, increasing maneuvering precision in short fields, inclement weather, and other dynamic situations.
The innovative ground-adjustable hub system permits easy, precise, and fast pitch optimization for maximum performance under a variety of operating demands and atmospheric conditions. Stainless steel erosion shields provide durable FOD and erosion protection for a long, reliable service life. 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.
