Thank you for your interest in Prince Aircraft Company.
Hello and Welcome,
I'm Lonnie Prince, I founded Prince Aircraft Company in 1979 as a part-time
business in the basement of my home. During that time I worked full-time as
an Air Traffic Controller, building my own experimental aircraft, flying
corporate aircraft, and President of our local Experimental Aircraft
Association Chapter. After the 1981 Air Traffic Controller strike I began
manufacturing propellers as a full time occupation.
My manufacturing capability was only three propellers a month, all being
hand carved. We certainly have grown since then. Today we are a company of
several employees and have the capability to manufacture in excess of one
hundred propellers a month. Using sophisticated tracing as well as Computer
Numerically Controlled carving equipment. I am proud to say we have
manufactured nearly Seven Thousand propellers for customers around the world.
The Prince P-TIP Propeller is unique. It has many features not
normally found with a fixed pitch propeller, including automatic pitch changing
and anhedral. The Prince P-TIP Propeller is an investment in outstanding performance,
efficiency, reliability, and noise reduction; all this and our outstanding
One of our most important tenets is respect and fairness to the customer.
I consider every customer my superior and make every attempt to show the
ole’ fashion respect and honor we remember of years past.
You will find our business practices the most outstanding in the industry.
If you are willing to invest your money, then my opinion is, you are trusting
us to design and manufacture a propeller that will be the correct match for your
performance envelope. Should there be a requirement for enhancement, we will
rework the propeller; fine-tuning to correct any performance requirements. If
we deem necessary a new propeller will be manufactured at our cost less shipping.
I hope you find this website useful. The attempt of this site is to anticipate
your questions and provide detailed answers during your propeller selection.
You will find this site easy to navigate with a Propeller Selection Wizard
that steps you through choosing your propeller, options, and cost. Also
you will find Customer Comments, Frequently asked Questions and details about
our products. You can place an order or ask further questions.
Thank you so much for considering the Prince P-TIP propeller for your application.
