Composite Props Offered In Choice Of Colors
Flight Design USA sister company HPower, Ltd -- known for its
import, sale, and service of HKS four-stroke light aircraft engines
-- announced this week the company has become the exclusive United
States importer of Germany's Neuform composite propeller line.
"These high quality props offer high performance, low fuel
consumption, and are very quiet," said HPower Ltd., president, Tom
Peghiny. "They also work well with our HKS engines and are the
preferred propellers on the Flight Design CT Light-Sport
Neuform composite props combine optimized aerodynamic design
with high-grade materials, all assembled with excellent German
Neuform propeller blades are made of a custom foam core,
surrounded by a glass fiber shell, which is covered by a colored
gel coat in either red, black, or white. Tractor (front-mounted)
props feature a black backside, to minimize color reflection while
looking through the spinning propeller.
"There is no extra paint on the surface, so no paint can be lost
affecting the dynamics of the propeller," explained Peghiny.
A selection of propeller models is available in tractor or
pusher configuration for the Rotax 582, 912, and 912S
engines, as well as for the HKS 700E powerplant.
