Great American Propellers
Kitfox™ Builders with the KFM Engine & Great American
Denney Aerocraft Company
Kitfox™ builder recently reported that a section of tip, about 1
“long, separated from his Great American propeller in flight. He was
able to land the aircraft without damage.
other builders have reported that they found cracks very near the tips
of their Great American propellers.
two-bladed propellers were provided with most KFM-1 12 Engine Kits.
Aerocraft Company recommends that every builder with a Great American
propeller inspect it very thoroughly before each flight, especially near
the tips, for cracks or delamination.
strongly recommend that the Great American propeller be replaced
immediately with a new propeller.
Great American Propeller Company is no longer in business, so you will
have to purchase your new propeller from another supplier. We recommend
that you deal with Prince Aircraft Co., 6774 Provident St., Whitehouse,
Oklahoma 43571, Phone (419) 877-5557, FAX (419) 877-5557. Lonnie Prince
has an excellent reputation for very high quality products, and will
design and build a propeller that will suit the KITFOXTM and
the KFM engine.
