Average Propeller or Prop Cost

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

Here is the answer to the member question on, What is Average Propeller Cost?

  • Average prop cost for us meansĀ  we usually use new cost on the original prop the manufacturer recommended prop or average the 3 of New, Overhauled, and Remanufactured props.
  • The costs vary and generally speaking as an owner you will try to keep the price down and buy an overhauled or a remanufactured prop, so hopefully we shoot high!
  • However there may be an STC for a different prop, 3 vs 2 blade, etc. so again varying prices, but we try to use manufacture specs, but can’t always

Here is an example on a BEECHCRAFT 24 B24R SIERRA 200
