The first advanced laminated wooden propeller made in Europe

In 1911, Lucien Chauviere’s Hélices Integrale were manufactured in France, Germany and Russia. In Europe he was the only manufacturer of wooden propellers for flying machines, who had the props available off the shelf from a large stock. That’s the reason why most of the pioneer airplane constructors used his propellers.

During the WW1, over 100.000 Chauviere propellers were made for allied airplanes, which was about 1/4 of total production.

We offer two types of propellers (of several hunderds) from this manufacturer. They vary by length in full size and different pitch, but the outline remains very similar:

Blériot 11

Hélice Integrale 245cm long from Anzani engine

Airco D.H.1

Hélice Integrale 273cm long from Renault 70hp rotary engine

..and their scaled reproductions.

 

You may have seen this propeller in a movie Blow-Up (1966).
