When flying aircraft that feature propeller blades, it is important to be aware of the forces that are enacted on such components. Often placed at the nose-end of an aircraft or on the wings, the aircraft propeller assembly experiences a high amount of centrifugal force during flight, often reaching upwards of 25 tons. As such, propeller blades may bend, flex, vibrate, and more during a normal operation. Coupled alongside environmental factors such as weathering and debris, aircraft propeller assemblies can lose their integrity over time and eventually become inoperable. To ensure that propellers provide as long of service lives as possible, operators should always conduct regular maintenance and inspections on set intervals.
