McCauley Gains ASTM Compliance On Composite Prop For Skycatcher

Prop Designed To Work With Continental O-200D Engine

Cessna's McCauley Propeller Systems division has achieved ASTM compliance for a new two-blade, fixed-pitch composite propeller for the 162 Skycatcher.

"This is the first of a planned family of composite propellers we have in development, designed for a range of aircraft," McCauley Vice President and General Manager Peter Wilkinson said in a news release Wednesday. "We're excited to have this announcement come on the heels of our consolidation of McCauley."

The 1L100 is a new all composite fixed-pitch propeller specifically designed for the Skycatcher's Teledyne Continental Motors O-200D engine. It consists of a continuous fiber, single piece design giving it high strength as well as light weight. McCauley will continue testing to gain Federal Aviation Administration CFR Part 35 certification, making the propeller available to a wider range of aircraft.

Cessna consolidated its McCauley operations in early July to better focus resources on development programs such as the 1L100.
