Aircraft Propeller Service, LLC has recently been awarded a five-year contract to service the 568F propeller blades on its EADS CASA C-295, a twin-turboprop tactical military transport aircraft, currently manufactured by Airbus Defence and Space in Spain.
“Our performance in the maintenance and repair of the 568F blade has been noticed by the industry. The increasing trust aerospace industry leaders like Airbus have placed in us is evidence that meeting the market’s needs with consistently high quality, cost-competitive and timely service is rewarded. We will continue to advance our mission of providing exceptional service, value and fast turnaround on behalf of Airbus and all of our valued customers,” said Dan Colbert, APS President and CEO.
It was the third quarter of 2015 when APS announced that it had licensed 568F Propeller System Blade Compression Wrap technology. The 568F six-blade electronic control composite propeller system is manufactured by UTC Aerospace Systems.
APS is a UTACS-licensed repair facility for IATA 1 and 3 (Americas and Asia).
The 568F is a Kevlar Shell/Graphic Spar six blade propeller. It is used on ATR’s latest generation turboprop aircraft, including the ATR42-500/600 and ATR72-500/600.
