MT-Propeller President Gerd Muehlbauer told AEROMARKT that the installation features the following advantages:

- Reduced take-off distance by approx. 10 % (MTOW, SL, ISA conditions).
- Enhanced cruise performance by 3 to 4 kts (MTOW, ISA).
- Cooler ITTs during engine start up, therefore less engine wear and reduced risk of hot start.
- Lighter than the original propellers by 8 kg (17,7 lbs) per propeller assembly. - Cabin noise reduction between 3-5 dB(A).
- The STC complies with the strict German noise regulations 2010 - „Landeplatz Lärmschutz Verordnung“ for unrestricted airport operations in Germany and other European Countries.
- Unbeatable esthetic ramp appeal.

The MT-Propeller natural composite blades provide significant inside and outside noise reduction. They have no life limitation,and are repairable in case of an FOD.

They also provide best vibration damping characteristics for almost vibration free propeller operation and have bonded on nickel alloy leading edges for superior erosion protection of the blades.
