Life Limited propeller

Hi I’m new to this site.

I work at an Aircraft Industry in Indonesia as one of Supply Chain Management officer.

Currently we have an issue of Life Limited Part/Item. In the contract with the custumer,  one clausal says: Life Limited Item shall have remaining life at least 80% on the date of delivery. This aircraft was undergo the certification process to ammend the TC. Now it’s ready to deliver. The propeller was new, 99 flight hours and about 2 years, and it has TBO of 6 years or 5000 flight hours. 

The Customer request a new propellers since the Life is less than 80%. 

In this case what can we do, replace with new propellers?


Thank you.



You could get it overhauled, that will reset the calender TBO and will be cheaper than a prop.

The other thing you might possibly be able to do is contact your regulatory authority and ask if they would okay an extension based on the aircrafts low usage and due to being on maintenance.
