Who We Are

An innovator with a history of firsts-to market, we are suppliers of propeller systems to the global turboprop aircraft market, covering both commercial aircraft and military air and sea-craft. One of only a few FAR 25 type certificate holder suppliers in the world certified on blades for civil aircraft, we are proud of our unique safety record. We are passionate about propeller blades (and have been since 1937); we believe in engineering excellence and engaging in advanced  manufacturing techniques to achieve the best outcome for our customers. 

We partner with our customers and potential customers to create a bespoke solution to their propulsion needs of today and tomorrow. We engage in significant research and development in aeroacoustics and aerodynamics as we seek to play a leadership role in the global aviation push towards a zero-carbon future (and we help our customers in that quest). We firmly believe in the inclusion of turboprops in that sustainable future. Backed by an experienced team, we support our customers with an enviable global maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service, including dedicated MRO sites and a team of roving engineers who visit our customers on site or on occasion are permanently based at the customer’s site. AOG support is offered 24/7.

 Welcome to Dowty Propellers, global experts in propulsion technology.
