Transport Canada STC for 4-blade Propeller on Viking Air Limited DHC-2T Mk3 Turbo Beaver.


Calgary / Alberta August 2020
Viking Turbo Beaver with MTV-16 MT-Propeller, in cooperation with Viking Air Limited, is happy to announce the certification of Transport Canada Supplemental Type Certificate STC SA20-49 for installation of MT-Propeller’s 4-blade propeller (model MTV-16-1-E-C-F-R(P)/CFR240-55a) on the Viking DHC-2T Mk3 Turbo Beaver equipped with Pratt & Whitney PTA6A-27 or -34 turbine engine. 

Installation of the 4-blade propeller provides operators of DHC-2T Turbo Beaver aircraft with the best vibration damping characteristics for vibration free propeller operations, improved take-off performance, improved ground clearance, reduced noise levels, and best weight-to-price ration in the industry. The bonded-on nickel alloy leading edge provides for best erosion protection of the blades and unlimited blade life, essential for aircraft operating in marine conditions.

The natural composite blades of the MT-Propeller significantly reduce noise levels both inside and outside of the aircraft, and can be readily repaired from FOD damage with no life limitation.

About De Havilland DHC – 2T Turbo Beaver:

In 1947, the De Havilland Aircraft Company of Canada introduced the DHC-2 Beaver aircraft. Since it was first introduced, the Beaver has been instrumental in the development of modern frontiers around the world. It is also the first single-engine utility aircraft to be upgraded to turbine power.

Viking Air Limited became the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of De Havilland Mk I & Mk III Beaver spare parts in 1983. The Viking DHC-2T Turbo Beaver has more power, better all-around performance, a longer cabin and larger payload than the Piston Beaver from which it was developed. It benefits from over 40 years of continuous worldwide operation and is the most reliable and sought-after aircraft in its category to this day.

Capable of operating on standard land-gear, amphibious floats or wheel skis, the Turbo Beaver has a well-earned reputation as one of the most practical, versatile, rugged and reliable aircraft flying in the air today, whether it be operating on a corporate flight line or traveling to a favorite fishing hole.

World's first 7-bladed MT-Propeller certified on Pilatus PC-12


Atting - July 2020
Pilatus PC-12 with 7-blade MTV-47World's first 7-bladed Unducted Prop FAN MT-Propeller is now supplemental type certified on the Pilatus PC-12 powered by a Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67B or PT6A-67P propeller turbine.

(PT6A-67P Engine Installation according to EASA STC 10065179 (FAA STC SA02266LA) only applicable in EASA region).

When starting developing the world's first 7-bladed propeller for general aviation in 2016 MT-Propeller had the same vision like in year 1999 when we came up with the first 5-bladed prop for turbo props. The 5-bladed prop became an industrial standard with more than 2500 propeller sold for various kinds of turbo props and it is still an ongoing success story. The 7-bladed propeller is pushing the new limits for certain applications to go beyond the achievement of the 5-bladed propellers.

The FAA STC is in progress.

MT-Propeller Vice President Martin Albrecht says that the installation of the brand new 7-bladed MT-Propeller on the propeller turbine driven aircraft PC-12 features the following advantages:


  • No engine modifications necessary
  • Certified Ground roll distance reduced by approx. 10%; AFMS amended
  • Certified Take-off distance over 50 ft obstacle reduced by approx. 15%; AFMS amended
  • Climb performance improved
  • Aircraft noise level is about 4 dB(A) less than with the original metal propeller
  • Cabin noise is reduced by 6 to 7 dB(A) depending on location
  • Comply with the strict German noise regulations 2010 - „Landeplatz Lärmschutz Verordnung“ for unrestricted airport operations in Germany and other European Countries!

Due to the smaller diameter the 7-bladed MT-Propeller for the Pilatus PC-12 has more ground clearance for less blade tip erosion and FODs.
The MT-Propeller natural composite blades provide significant inside and outside noise reduction. They 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.

Worlds first 9 bladed prop started the flight test program

Atting, March 19

9-blade MT-Propeller MTV-39 on the test airplane Worlds first 9 bladed prop started the flight test program on March 11th 2019 and initial results are very promising.

Function, handling and operation of the aircraft is like those props have been in service already for years.

This new development is made for low noise, high performance future airplanes driven by electric powered engines, turbine engines or geared piston engines for propellers with low RPM.

Depending on propeller driven airplane designs, top speeds of up to 430 KTAS are realizable with such a installation, by reducing at the same time the fuel consumption to a turbo prop from a jet.

MT-Propeller proves with this milestone that the innovation in propeller driven airplanes is just at the beginning.

Flying a Jet comfort airplane powered by props combined with the lowest fuel consumption becomes a near future.

The installation is already certified by EASA STC 10060826 and FAA STC No. ST08542NY-A.



MT-Propeller President Gerd Muehlbauer says, that the installation feature the following advantages:

  • Reduced take-off distance by approx. 10 % (MTOW, SL, ISA conditions).
  • Enhanced cruise performance by 3 to 4 kts (MTOW, ISA).
  • Cooler ITTs during engine start up, therefore less engine wear and reduced risk of hot start.
  • Lighter than the original propellers by 8 kg (17,7 lbs) per propeller assembly.
  • Cabin noise reduction between 3-5 dB(A).
  • Unbeatable esthetic ramp appeal.
  • The STC complies with the strict German noise regulations 2010 - „Landeplatz Lärmschutz Verordnung“ for unrestricted airport operations in Germany and other European Countries.

The MT-Propeller natural composite blades provide significant inside and outside noise reduction. They 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 is the world leading natural composite propeller manufacturer with 30 certified propeller models from 2-blade to 7-blade hydraulically controlled variable pitch propeller, for engines producing up to 5000hp, and 2-blade to 4-blade electrically controlled variable pitch propeller, 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.
