Wooden Propellers - V. Strzinek & Co.
We deal with production and history of wooden propellers and the history of aviation for several years. I would like to share my enthusiasm with all aviation fans, sport aviators, professional pilots, and also modellers, and offer them, by this website, this symbol of aviation in a form of a tangible wooden propeller. During the manufacture we use the original technique.
In cooperation with flight school Jan Koutnicek and Mr. Radovan Latal:

A few words about me, an aviator and aircraft constructor.
This enthusiasm and a great hobby stretches with me since I was sixteen, when I first got behind the stick and began flying gliders at the airport in Aeroclub Vyškov (Czech Republic). In 2012, during my studies at university, in my own initiative I began to study and manufacture wooden propellers, as symbols of legendary pilots and aeroplanes, which still fascinate me. At that time I also had the opportunity to look into a historic aeroplane build by Mr. Petr Svoboda (Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter), who inspired me. At that time I was approached by Mr. Jan Koutníček, the owner of a pilot training center in Vyškov, whether I would help him with a build of a two-seater aeroplane. My enthusiasm and interest developed into real knowledge and skills just in his shop and hangar, and I still devour his experiences as much as possible.
Hobby became a full-time job, and after graduation I chose to remain in the aviation. I have started my first big project, a construction of a historic two-seater aircraft from 1929 - Pietenpol Aircamper. I plan a test flight in the spring of 2017. I am pleased with your questions and interest and I will try not only to fulfill your expectations, but also to surprise with high quality and precise work. Maybe one day I will see you when you come to pick up a propeller, or in the air during an engine rumble.
We supply the whole world with our propellers!
Our propellers have crossed the borders of the Czech Republic long time ago, with references around the whole world, even in Australia. The map shows selected locations where we sent our propellers. The most prestigious customers are for example The Warner Bros. Studios, Aviation museums in Norfolk or Aviation museum Thiepval (Flanders, Fr), and others.
