Dynamic Propeller Balancing
Regal Air can dynamically balance your aircraft propeller. Here are some frequently asked questions about propeller balancing.
What is dynamic propeller balancing?
- Dynamic propeller balancing is the process whereby an electronic balancer is used to measure the vibration produced by the aircraft powerplant. Small trim balance weights are added to the propeller/crankshaft assembly to correct for errors and reduce the measured vibration to the lowest level practical. On average, 19 out of 20 fixed-wing aircraft can benefit from Dynamic Prop Balancing.
Why be concerned with vibration?
- Excess and unwanted aircraft vibration can cause discomfort and fatigue for the flight crew and passengers.
- The service life of expensive avionics and instruments is shortened considerably when the equipment is operated in a high vibration environment.
- Excess vibration can also shorten the life of expensive engine components such as vacuum pumps, exhaust systems, engine baffling, spinners, and many other items.
