Kent WA – July 15, 2020 Pacific Propeller international (PPI), a member of the Precision Aerospace Products (PAP) Group, has successfully implemented a proven and repeatable process to overhaul and repair the Hamilton Standard 54H60 propeller. The 54H60 propellers are used on the C-130 Hercules and P-3 Orion aircraft, which are part of the U.S. strategic arsenal and also heavily relied upon by U.S. allies, commercial and international military operators.
Precision Aerospace Product’s significant investment in PPI’s engineering and modern machining equipment has resulted in PPI being the only company to achieve the new stringent Technical Order (TO) requirements. This successful development by PPI will provide immediate relief to U.S. military and International Customers that have been waiting for a resolution to return props to service for nearly three years. COO and President, Tim Gellerson, commented on awaiting the new technical processes, “I am very proud of the PPI team. They were given a very tough project and they implemented with great determination and success.”
