Qualified and Capable — DUC's expertise in both aerodynamics and composite materials allows this well-established French company to provide efficient propellers that operate quietly while providing powerful thrust. No wonder they have won fans around the world. DUC props can be found in a wide number of countries, attesting to their strong function in a variety of climates and conditions. DUC Hélices is ISO 9001 certified having proven their quality controls and well-managed production system. After-sales service is another strength.
Range of Products — DUC offers three-blade props in several configurations such as Flash and Flash-2, Swirl, and Windspoon plus a five-blade series called Flair (find all prop details here). In addition the company offers spinners in white or carbon fiber black finish to fit a variety of aircraft plus neoprene blade covers to protect your investment.
Besides LSA seaplanes, one area of furious development (and sales) is gyroplanes, the term modern industry prefers to “gyrocopter,” which was actually a branded name used since the days of Igor Benson.
The fourteenth running of the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo is history and if this is how the rest of the year goes, I predict a stronger year for LSA sales.
Day two of the year’s first show, Sebring was a bit cooler and windier but still a fine day as the photos show.
Belite entrepreneur James Weibe has successfully used his tech industry background to raise interest for his latest project, this time his first two seater called Chipper.
If you live in France or are traveling to the country (soon!), you might want to join the party… the DUC Propellers party, that is.
In my experience, pilot love learning about engines. Yet without a prop, that engine may run fine, but nothing happens to the airplane other than converting a tank of fuel into noise.
