Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers the establishment of the minimum requirements for the design, testing, and quality assurance of fixed-pitch or ground adjustable propellers for light sport aircraft. The propeller may not have design features that have been shown to be hazardous or unreliable unless the suitability of each questionable design detail or part can be established by tests. Strength testing; stress measurement, fatigue strength, and fatigue analysis, endurance testing, and teardown inspection shall be performed to meet the requirements prescribed.
