Hi Isvance 54,

I fly an Allegro 2000 E-LSA with a Woodcomp Klassic 160/3/R. In Sept. of 2016 I had an engine loss of coolant incident that required me to replace the cylinder heads. Around that same time I was made aware of the Woodcomp Service Bulletin 02/2012 EN dated Nov 8 2012. Up until then I had no idea that Woodcomp had issued a service bulletin. At that time I had 700 Hours on the original Woodcomp propeller and my airplane and the propeller was 10 years old. The closest Authorized Woodcomp Testing Facility to me was Sportair USA LC in North Little Rock, AR. I contacted them and they told me that because of the age of the propeller and their experience it was most likely my propeller would fail the testing and they recommended I purchase a new propeller. I ask if I could just purchase the blades and re-use the hub. They said no because of the slight changes in the new blades. I ended up having to purchase new blades, hub and bolts ($1200.00)

You can contact them at:

Sportair USA LC

North Little Rock, AR  72118

From: "lsvance54" <lsvance(at)comcast.net>


I just completed the LSRM-A repairman course and found a Service Bulletin on the
Woodcomp Propeller that I did not previously know about.
Apparently, my 2006 Allegro 2000 should have been grounded for a propeller overhaul
as of 2012.  The Woodcomp Klassic 160 has a 6 year/ 950 hour TBO.
Anyone have a U.S. source for overhaul? Is there an alternate prop that has a better
TBO or longer age limit?

I would encourage you to communicate with Doug at Allegro USA.. He would be the
one that would know how to respond to this question.
