Vintage aircraft and warbirds are significant investments. You don’t want to waste your money.

Propellers of all shapes and sizes take a beating. It doesn’t matter if you’re flying a Beechcraft Bonanza, a P-51 Mustang, a Cessna, a Piper Super Cub, or a Curtiss. Taking care of those propellers should be a top priority.

Vintage airplane enthusiasts nationwide use us for their propeller work. When you send your metal or composite propeller to an FAA certified repair facility, like Stockton Propeller, for your propeller work, you are trusting your propeller to the best.

Your propeller can appear to be functioning very well during each flight. But if you fly or live in humid conditions, over saltwater, or through the dusty air, internal corrosion could be destroying your governor or propeller. Catch corrosion early with regular inspections!

Some propellers require routine inspections. When we do these inspections we look at the whole propeller, not just the part that is required to be looked at. We want to make sure the entire prop is safe to operate. We make sure all the preloads and adjustments are correct even if they were not when we received it.

In order to perform an inspection it is necessary to do a reseal since the prop needs the internal parts inspected as well as the external parts. We take the propeller entirely apart during a reseal, conduct a visual corrosion inspection, and replace all the seals. We do a final track and balance as well. We look at this as an alternative to an overhaul so we make sure all the parts are safe to run until the next TBO period. If there are any other items that need to be addressed we can do it at this time. We can also dress and repaint the blades if desired or if needed. .

A propeller inspection is generally about half the cost of a standard overhaul. This relatively inexpensive procedure can add life to your aircraft’s propeller through the early discovery of corrosion and other detrimental issues.

We can do repairs on your propeller and make it airworthy again without having to do a complete overhaul in most cases. Sometimes it just needs a reseal or maybe has a worn, corroded or broken part. We can evaluate and give you options for the desired results.

More issues than just a quick repair or inspection? We routinely perform overhauls on vintage aircraft and warbirds governors and propellers.
