DUC Propellers USA is a French company (DUC Hélices) that is now also established as an American supplier. The company specializes in the design and manufacture of carbon fiber composite aircraft propellers. At this they excel, proven by many airframe producers that tried other props and settled on DUC.
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.
The need for speed is hard wired into humans, it seems.
“The DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase (DSAS), conducted from November 14-16, 2019 at the DeLand Municipal Airport in Florida, has completed a careful look at ticket sales, gate receipts, exhibitor numbers and other data… and is happy to report that the 2019 Showcase eclipsed the 2018 attendance by over 20%,” reported lead organizer, Jana Filip.
As Day Three arrived, blue skies returned to Sebring after a damp start on Day Two and with them came the best crowds of pilots and companions of any day so far …by far.
Imagine you are in charge of marketing for French propeller manufacturer, Duc Hélices.
Day One of the third running of DeLand Showcase is complete.
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.
