  • Engines:TPE331-10U-( ), TPE331-11U-(), TPE331-12UA-()
    TPE331-12UAR-(), TPE331-12UHR-()
  • Propeller: MTV-27-1-E-C-F-R(G)/CFRL250-103

  • Advantages:
  • Best vibration damping characteristics
    for almost vibration free propeller operations
  • Bonded on nickel alloy leading edge for best erosion
    protection of the blades
  • No engine modifications (no cam or beta tube change)
  • Ground roll distance reduced by approx. 50 m (165 ft)
  • Take-off distance over 50 ft obstacle reduced by
    approx. 80 m (260 ft)
  • Two engine and single engine climb performance
    slightly improved by up to 80 ft/min
  • Cruise performance slightly improved by up to 2 kts
  • Approx. 65 lbs less weight than the orig. metal propellers
  • More ground clearance for less FODs
  • Significant inside and outside noise reductions
  • Aircraft noise level is about 5 dB(A) less than with the
    original metal propellers
  • Cabin noise is reduced by 3 to 4 dB(A)
    depending on location
  • Cooler ITTs during engine start up due to a shorter starting time of 1/3
  • Unlimited blade life
  • FOD repairable blades
