It's the way to get a properly-running aircraft!
Do it to get the best out of your aircraft - and to extend the life of every component on board.
Dynamic Propeller Balancing - what is it?
Dynamic propeller balancing is a procedure where a digital vibration analyzer is used to measure the vibration produced by the aircraft powerplant and propeller assembly and identify the source(s).
Small trim balance weights are then added to the propeller spinner or hub assembly to correct for imbalance and reduce the measured vibration to the lowest level practical. Every aircraft can benefit from Dynamic Prop Balancing.
"But my aircraft runs fine. Why should I have the propeller balanced?"
Your aircraft's vibration level may be better or worse than the average but it's best to know for sure and fix it if vibration exists. 4 out of 5 aircraft tested are experiencing high levels of vibration which can be quickly diagnosed and eliminated or reduced to safe levels.
When your prop shop statically balances your prop you should follow up with a dynamic balance ON THE AIRCRAFT. - and we're one of the tiny number of companies that's doing it properly and completely.
Most shops and prop balancing outfits have old equipment and a single sensor and are entirely unaware of this limitation!
