MT lands Brazilian STC for five-blade MU-2B prop
The installation of the five-blade MT-Propeller on the MU-2B dramatically reduces the inside noise by up to 8 dB(A) and reduces the propeller weight.

MT-Propeller Entwicklung has received an STC from ANAC, the Brazilian civil aviation authority, for the MTV-27-1-E-C-F-R(G)/CFR210-58d next generation five-blade scimitar composite propeller on the Mitsubishi MU-2B series with maximum 2,000 engine rpm, and the MTV-27-1-E-C-F-R(G)/CFRL240-55d propeller on the MU-2B series with maximum 1,591 engine rpm.

This installation is also already supplemental type certified by EASA, FAA and ANAC in Argentina.

Vice president Martin Albrecht says the installation features dramatically reduced inside noise by up to eight dB(A); increased de-ice boot area for better de-icing capabilities; lower weight and jet-like comfort; reduced propeller weight; and improved take off, climb and top speed.

The long time proven MT propellers have no life limitation and are repairable in case of an FOD. They also provide best vibration damping characteristics for almost vibration free propeller operation and have bonded on nickel alloy leading edges for superior erosion protection of the blades.

MT-Propeller has 30 propeller models from two-blade to seven-blade hydraulically controlled variable pitch propellers for engines producing up to 5,000hp, and two-blade to four-blade electrically controlled variable pitch propellers for engines producing up to 350hp as well as two blade fixed pitch propellers.

The high performance, light weight and durable MT-Propellers can be used on aircraft with piston engines and propeller turbines, as well as on airships, wind tunnels or hovercraft. MT-Propellers can be developed for nearly every aircraft type from motor gliders to regional airliners.

Fulfilling the highest certifications requirements, they are also supplemental type certified on Part 25 aircraft.

MT-Propeller is the holder of over 220 STCs worldwide and the OEM supplier for more than 90 per cent of the European aircraft industry as well as 30 per cent of the US aircraft industry. More than 28,000 propeller systems with over 90,000 blades are in service, and 180 million fleet hours have been performed on MT-Propellers. With the longest industry TBO of 4,500 hours or six years for the five-bladed turbo prop MT-Propeller has proven the reliability of its products over the years.
