Propellers

Never Compromising on Quality

We have large propeller shops located in Auckland, Hamilton, and Dunedin, allowing us to effectively service operators located in both the North and South Islands of New Zealand as well as overseas.

With each shop equipped with dynamic balance equipment and our Hamilton branch offering cold rolling, shot peening and eddy current inspection services, we provide comprehensive overhaul and calendar inspection services on all leading fixed, variable/controllable pitch and feathering propellers. Our clients also have the choice of completing an overhaul with a painted finish to meet requirements.


Each and every propeller that comes through our shops, leave in a condition that meets both our high standard of quality. Our processes allow us to meet quick turnaround times needed to get back in the air with the least time on the ground while never compromising on quality or safety.
