Faster and more powerful propeller aircraft typically feature a Constant Speed Unit (CSU) propeller system.
A constant speed propeller is a type of propeller that can change its blade pitch to take better advantage of the power supplied by an engine in much the same way that a transmission in a car takes better advantage of its power source.
At Airborne Aviation we have a number of aircraft types that feature CSU's including:
- Cessna 182
- Beechcraft Debonair
- Piper Seneca (Twin)
- Beechcrat Duke (Twin)
During ground and flight training you will cover explore the following:
- CSU Principles of Operation
- Pre-Flight Considerations
- Cockpit Controls & Indicators
- Power Settings & Limits
- Before Take-off Checks
- Procedures for Adding/Removing Power
- General Aircraft Handling
- CSU Malfunctions
- Emergency Procedures
At the completion of the course you will be issued with a Constant Speed Unit (CSU) design feature endorsement in your logbook and be type checked to private hire our current generation Cessna 182's. In order to fly our G1000 equipped glass-cockpit C182's you must have completed the Glass Cockpit Conversion course.
This course may be combined with our Retractable Undercarriage Endorsement course to receive both endorsements in a cost and time effective way.
