The E-Props propellers are designed, manufactured and tested to meet the requirements of the aeronautical standards.
Quality and safety are ongoing concerns for the E-PROPS company, throughout the design, procurement, manufacturing, testing and marketing of all its products.
1- ASTM F2506-13 (LSA)
E-PROPS meets the ASTM F2506-13 standards
, for the Light Sport Aircraft.
The ASTM F2506-13 specification covers the establishment of the 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.
ASTM F2506-13 Compliance Summary
The certification of an aeronautical equipment is a process which allows to make sure of the reproducibility and the follow-up quality of this product, from the design phase through the use on a plane.
It is an excellent principle in aeronautics, domain where an error or a negligence could have dramatic consequences.
Except ultralights or homebuilt aircraft, the other aircraft are certified and must follow strict standards.
The propellers which equip the certified planes must themselves be certified.
Today, the obtaining of an aeronautical certification is a complex, long and expensive process.
It is not only a question of certifying the production of the manufacturer, but also its method of design of products, assembly line then product itself, and finally adaptation of the product to a defined aircraft.
The process of certification contains several phases and lasts several years.
After the certification and the start of a product, the certification agency assures throughout the useful life of the product its responsibility of the surveillance of the initial airworthiness.
Besides, a certified product can undergo repairs and modifications, themselves that must be in accordance with the regulations of airworthiness and approved by the competent authority.
2- QUALITY CHARTER
Quality and security are ongoing concerns for E-PROPS all along of design, purchases, fabrication, tests and marketing of its products.
E-PROPS has established a Quality Charter (a Quality Charter is a short text that summarizes the quality commitments made by the company).
