A few weeks ago my Europa was damaged at Glos airport when an R44 overturned on the ramp. The rotor blades fragmented then passed through the hangar walls and hit a shipping container. The debris field consisting of several kg chunks of rotor blade structure and lead ballast hit my prop causing surface damage. Other minor damage occurred to the screen and paintwork.

Following some subjective testing, tap testing and NDI, l am still uncomfortable using my damaged blade(s).

Airmaster has back orders resulting in delays in UK delivery until (possibly) August.

Does anyone have a set of Warp Drive blades or complete prop assy that can be loaned (at cost) to me whilst the issue is resolved and new parts sourced? Rotax 912ULS, 64in prop. I have the spinner backplate mounted brushes.

I had Warp Drive prop fitted to my ac G-LDVO during initial test flying then fitted the Airmaster. I still have the Warp Drive prop and all fitting parts if its any help till you get new blades.
