MT Propeller for Experimental Aircraft


The Superior Propeller for Your Vans Aircraft! 

MT Composite Propellers in Stock!

Improve load capacity, safety, performance, and comfort


MT composite propellers are light-weight and vibration-free (unlike traditional metal propellers) resulting in greater load capacity, safety, and superior comfort. In addition, the MT composite design eliminates the risk of corrosion and are owner field repairable resulting life unlimited blades. The schimitar blade design improves the take-off, climb, cruise, and landing performance of your aircraft for superior performance, durability, safety, and comfort.


The MTV-9 "Express" HD Hub is built to handle the powerful Lycoming engine firing pulses with no life limits or restricted RPM ranges. 

MTV-9-B/183-50a is a heavy-duty propeller recommended for any RV -3, -4, -6, -7, -8, -9, -10, -14 with any of the following engines: (I)O-360, -375, -400, -409 or -540 series.


MTV-12-B/183b "Express Lite" medium-duty hub is also available – it may require restricted RPM operation ranges.

The Lycoming 4-cylinder engine design is nearly "bullet proof", however they produce very strong firing pulse vibrations felt by the propeller. MT-Propeller’s wood composite load-carrying core is not affected by this. In fact, wood dampens vibration better than any propeller material known to date. The wood core is also immune to stress risers or fatigue. A deep cut in an MT blade does not lead to blade failure, unlike metal propellers. MT blades can also be repaired by the owner with simple household epoxy.


The MTV-9 heavy-duty 3-blade hub is recommended over the MTV-12 series for use on engines without counter-weights, and for engines with "more than stock output".

"Nothing is worse in flying a show plane than having wimpy smoke! My custom smoke system fom C J Aviation gives me a reliable, high-volume output of billowing white smoke, perfect for highlighting the maneuvers in my RV-8. Charlie Duffie and his team build the absolute best without cutting any corners. Any other system would be only second-best!" - Gene McNeely
