Aviation Propellers, Inc.
Aviation Propellers, Inc. was founded in 1970. After receiving Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval we grew into one of the largest propeller overhaul and service facilities in the Southeastern United States. We are strategically located in Opa Locka, Florida (Miami area).
Accessible by air at Opa Locka, Florida airport (OPF), we have overhauled and serviced the flying public, worldwide, for over 30 years. We are able to receive and/or ship propellers, governors, and control units to any place on earth via major carriers daily.
Aviation Propellers, Inc. began by serving South Florida and the Bahamas in the early 1970’s and quickly found our customers sometimes were grounded days, awaiting service on their propellers. We decided to keep a good supply of loaner propellers to get our customers back in the air faster, and in many cases, flying to our customer’s location to make repairs of the aircraft itself, eliminating the removal and shipping of the propeller.
We have literally covered Central and South America to get a grounded aircraft flying again. Even if all that was required was an eddy current inspection, tightening of a loose blade or servicing an oil leak on a new propeller under warranty.
Aviation Propellers, Inc. is now, and has been a distributor for most propeller manufacturers in the world. Our management team includes professionals with extensive experience in the propeller field. Our management has focused on identifying and employing highly motivated individuals with a strong dedication to quality and safety.
In the 1980’s Aviation Propellers, Inc. acquired Propeller Service of Miami, Inc, approved F.A.A. repair station XX4R66M, one of the oldest certified propeller facilities in the United States, operating since 1946. Propeller Service of Miami, Inc. was in a position, just after the end of World War II to overhaul many military and transport type aircraft and has acquired a vast quantity of surplus parts, which, for the most part are available today.
