Jabiru Propeller Failure


Recommended Posts

Another shedding of a Jabiru propeller has been reported. I had commented on this in the magazine some time back, but would like to reinforce it here again.


If you own a propeller manufactured prior to Mid 2006 (I don't know the exact date, but this is a conservative time figure) then please be vigilent on the maintenance of ot. Make sure that the black edging tape is still there and that any stone ship on the face of the blade are fixed as soon as they are noticed.


The newer propeller have been manufactured differently and do not allow the fibreglass edging to be exposed to the airflow. This is the case when the black edging tape is worn off. If you have taken your jabiru through rain unavoidably, your propeller will most likely not have any edging left on it.
