MT-Propellers for Glasair

All propellers are variable pitch, constant speed.

Recommended governors for all hydraulic propellers: McCauley, Hartzell, Jihostroj and Woodward. Compatibility with our propellers must be confirmed. Generally we recommend the use of hydraulic propeller system because of it’s higher pitch change rate (~6 times). If a hydraulic system is not possible the electric constant speed propeller is recommended. Take off, climb and cruise performance of both systems is equal, if the same blade types are used. If the Lycoming IO-360 is selected as the preferred engine, we’d recommend the version which has 6th-order dampers installed (i.e. -A1B6) for lower vibration loads. Our propeller blades are manufactured in natural-composite, protected by two layers of fiberglass and a stainless-steel erosion sheet, hubs made from aluminum alloy, Kevlar spinner dome. Extended hubs – if required – are available on request, at no additional charge. Standard blade colour is white with red tips, customer defined colours upon request. See our Service Bulletin No. 1-() for the current TBO’s.

All quoted prices are list prices for the export, ex factory Straubing. Our general terms of sales and limited warranty applies. The shipping box for the 2-blade propellers is included in the price. For assembled 3-blade propellers the shipping box costs US$ 200.- net additionally. Delivery time is presently 8-10 weeks after receipt of order.

All rights of change without prior notice are reserved.

Sensenich Fixed Pitch Propellers for Glasair I’s and II’s – 160 h.p.

Designed for the Glasair, this 70″ propeller has a 77 degree pitch and performs slightly better than the Pacesetter wood propeller, model 68-71-20 in both cruise and climb. Its main advantages however are in longevity and smoothness (restricted to 2600 RPM redline). Please allow 8 – 10 weeks for the Sensenich factory to ship direct to you. Comes with mounting bolts and propeller extension to be used with the long cowling. The spinner mounting kit will be extra.

Sensenich No: 70CM6S16-0-77 (3/8″ Bolts) Part No:

(Not for use with the Sensenich metal propeller.)

These items are drop shipped from the manufacturer and are usually in stock for immediate shipment. Hybrids, such as for adapting an SAE-1 prop to an SAE-2 engine, as well as custom lengths are also available. Please call us for current pricing if interested.

There have been failures of 6061 T-6 prop extensions, too brittle for the application, and therefore subject to fatigue. All of these prop extensions are machined from solid 2024 T-351 aluminum billet, for strength and fatigue resistance. They are also guaranteed to be completely free of tool marks and chatter by the manufacturer. Since our lugs are internally threaded, the use of nuts and washers are unnecessary. The prop bolt screws directly into the internally threaded lug.

Consequently, you can remove the propeller or re-torque the bolts without removing the upper cowling to access propeller nuts.

These prop extensions are available in either 6′ or 7′ diameter and are 4″ long to match our long cowling.

The 6″ prop extension has 5/8″ threaded lugs installed. The engine end is counterbored for 5/8″ lugs and 3/8″ or 7/16″ bolts. Please specify bolt and thread size of the lugs/prop bolts when ordering or requesting information.

The 7″ prop extension has ¾” threaded lugs installed with ½-20 thread. The engine end is 6″ in diameter and counterbored for 5/8″ or ¾” lugs. You will need to specify lug size when ordering or requesting information.

Propeller crush plates are also available. The 6″ O.D. crush plate comes 3/8″ thick, SAE-1, or –2, with 3/8″ or 7/16″ holes. The 7″ O.D. crush plate comes 3/8″ thick, SAE-2, with 3/8″ or 7/16″ holes. Please specify hole size and any other information needed at time of ordering or requesting information.

Engine & Flight Instruments

Future Vision Instrument Panel

This instrument panel is extraordinary. No panel has ever been designed for conventional aircraft that can even remotely compare to this one. First introduced at Sun ‘n Fun by Lance Turk, owner and founder of Vision Microsystems. Lance designed and installed the panel into his Glasair I FT to provide a true state-of-the-art backdrop for his instruments. This panel was instrumental in Lance winning the “Best Interior” award at the show. Because of the flood of inquiries received from builders who have seen the panel first-hand, Glasair Aviation, LLC now has made available a kit which includes one piece fiberglass panel, aluminum inserts for all your instruments, and all the hardware such as stainless steel cap screws, aluminum rivets, and steel nutplates for mounting the inserts to the panel and the panel to the fuselage. The installation comes complete with instructions as well as sample instrument layouts.

NOTE: Glasair I’s are able to install the II/II-S instrument panel, but some modification is required to enable the 3 inch wider panel to fit. Also be aware that minimal panel space may be lost due to this modification, in particular the upper left hand corner. Additional instructions and photographs are included with the Glasair I orders.

This kit lengthens the brake master cylinder actuating arm on early Glasair I RG, II RG, and III rudder pedals. The longer lever arm increases the length of the master cylinder stroke which eliminates the “spongy” feel of the brakes and substantially improves braking effectiveness. These are in later model Glasair RG and III Kits, shipped after 5/1/89, which have different pedal castings.

Control Stick Grips

These stick grips are superb quality, made of black molded hard plastic with red switches. “Glasair” is attractively molded into the top of the handle (except on the military type grip). Two styles are available: civilian type (#’s 1451, 1452, 1453), and military type (#1460). The neutral military stick will fit either hand and comes with one trigger switch only, the remaining three switch positions are left unfilled and switches may be added by the builder, if desired. The other grips come with the switches described. Switch functions may be used for intercom, radio transmit,

auto-pilot disengage, roll trim, etc. Weight: .25 lb. Ea. There is often a lead time on these parts, so order early.

*These grips include a sleeve to match the inside diameter of the grip to the outside diameter of the control stick.

Rear Windows

Enhance the aesthetics and rearward visibility of your Glasair with these flush fit rear windows. The premolded pieces follow the contour of the Glasair fuselage and add that extra finishing touch. (Note: Glasair II Rear Windows fit the Glasair I fuselage, but the tint color is slightly different.) Also, the length of I/II rear windows are shorter than the II-S and III rear windows due to the positioning of the baggage bulkhead. Detailed installation instructions are included. Included in Super II and Glasair III kits.

  Wing Tip Extensions

  • Increased rate of climb
  • Greater speed at altitude
  • Reduced stall speed
  • Longer range
  • Improved lateral stability
  • Increased glide
  • 100 lbs. gross weight increase

These wing tip extensions add four feet to the wing-span which increases the aspect ratio from 6.2 to 7.6. The climb performance is increased by 150 feet/min., stall speed is reduced up to 5 m.p.h., and the lateral (roll) stability is greatly improved for cross-country flying.

Our tests consistently show that, at reduced power settings, the extended tips offer greater lift and more speed for the horsepower-approximately a 7 mph increase at 17,500 ft. These tips may be used as integral fuel tanks, with about

5.5 gallons capacity per side.

The tip extensions reduce the roll rate from approximately 140 degrees per second to 90 degrees per second and are not recommended for aerobatics. Structurally, they will withstand the design limit and ultimate loads of the Glasair but are not recommended for aerobatic maneuvers due to the reduced roll rate. They are designed to be easily removable and replaced with the smaller, standard wing tips if more aggressive roll performance is desired.

Wing tip change-over takes about 10 minutes per side if they are not used for carrying fuel. (Glasair I builders: please note that to make the tip extensions and the standard tips interchangeable, the standard tips will have to be modified slightly to accommodate the larger flange necessary for mounting the tip extensions.)

The wing tip extensions are designed with an attractive, upswept Hoerner-type tip, which reduces drag compared to a standard rounded tip. The kit includes molded composite upper and lower extension panels, foam and fiberglass, mounting hardware, fabrication instructions and clear Plexiglas navigation light lenses.

NOTE: We highly recommend the use of these wing tip extensions for first flights and initial test flying, especially for Glasair III owners. There are very few rental aircraft available which can simulate the high wing loading of the Glasair III. The wing tip extensions will lower the wing loading to a more familiar level for pilots who lack experience in high performance aircraft.

WARNING to Glasair I builders: If you choose to use/install wing tip extensions, it is mandatory that you install the large rudder – reference S.B. #116. Glasair I aircraft equipped with tip extensions may stall below the minimum controllable airspeed (Vmc) as defined in the Owner’s Manual. Thus, if minimum airspeed is not maintained, the small rudder may not maintain adequate yaw control, especially if the tip extensions are used as auxiliary fuel tanks. Note: The Large Rudder is standard in all Glasair Kits shipped after September 1985.

NOTE: Includes (1) gallon resin. Resin shipped separately. For use as fuel tanks, see wing tip fuel system kit below.

image Fuel Vent Float Valve Installation

The valves are designed to be retrofitable to flying Glasairs. They mount to the outboard side of the main fuel tank end rib, accessible by removing the wing tip or wing tip extensions. Provisions have been designed into them for the connection of extended wing tips with fuel. When the fuel level moves up to the level of the vent, such as when parked on sloping grade, an upside down shaped cup acts as a float and rises to close the vent, preventing the fuel from dumping overboard. As the fuel level drops below the vent, the float unseats and allows the fuel tank to breathe in both directions. A low-pressure relief valve has been incorporated to relieve pressure should fuel expansion occur with full tanks. When there is an engine fuel demand with tanks full, a pressure relief valve will open until the level is below the fuel vent and normal venting can occur.

Also, during aerobatics or inverted flight, the cup shaped float will fill with fuel and close the fuel vents preventing fuel from flowing overboard. The kit consists of two fuel vent float valves and the installation instructions.

Part No:
  Slotted Flaps

The Slotted Flap Installation is undoubtedly one of the best improvements that has been added to the Glasair line in recent history. The benefits of the Slotted Flaps are significant: (1) reduces stall speed by 6 mph, (2) reduces landing and takeoff roll, (3) significantly improves over the nose landing visibility during approach, (4) reduces approach speeds (an invaluable safety feature for a forced, off-field landing), (5) increases maximum flap speed from 120 to 140 mph. With the Extended Wing Tips the Glasair can be truly one of the best high speed cruise performance aircraft, and yet have excellent short field/stall capabilities.

Note: Electrical Flaps Installation is required with this option. The Slotted Flaps for the Glasair II, II-S, Super II-S and III kits have a flat, non-cusped bottom to match the ailerons supplied in those kits. Please order accordingly. The slotted flap kit or electric flap option use an external flap position. Customers mark the flaps on their inboard ends and visually read the degrees of actuation by alignment with the trailing edge. The system is very simple and works well. It sure reduces cost, weight and complexity over a traditional cockpit indicator!

Note: This option requires $75.00 crating charge.

image Hydraulic Snubber

During operation of our Glasair III prototype, we have experienced higher than normal loads on the hydraulic actuator rod ends caused by aerodynamically assisted gear extension at or above 140 mph. When the hydraulic system moves the actuators to release the mechanical uplock hooks, there is relatively low pressure on the opposite sides of the actuator pistons and very little restriction in the hydraulic fluid’s flow back to the pump. This situation, along with aerodynamic forces and the force of gravity, causes the gear to fall abruptly out of the wing.

Achieving smoother gear operation and thereby reducing peak loads on the hydraulic system can easily be accomplished by installing the hydraulic snubber between the “B” cross and the hydraulic pump. The snubber is an AN816-4D nipple that has been modified by welding it closed and then drilling a #60 hole through the weld. The tiny hole restricts the flow of fluid back to the electric hydraulic pump, preventing the gear from slamming down. Standard on all Glasair III kits shipped after January 28th, 1990.

image Hydraulic Actuator Rebuild Kits

Hydraulic actuator rebuild kits are available for the hydraulic actuators supplied with the Glasair kits. Each rebuild kit will supply all necessary seals and “O” rings to rebuild one cylinder. Because of different diameter actuator piston rods used by different kits it is very important that when ordering a rebuild kit the type of airplane (G-I, II, II-S or II) and cylinder location (main or nose gear) be specified.

Emergency Gear Extension Retrofit – G- III

This retrofit kit must be used in conjunction with the side brace down lock system, both of which are standard on all Glasair III kits shipped after S/N 3238 and are a great safety enhancement to the Glasair III’s. The system increases the value of your aircraft and is inexpensive insurance against almost any type of gear system failure.

This kit includes a complete backup set of main gear and nose gear hydraulic actuators, a four port selector valve, two check valves, an adjustable restrictor valve, a pressure switch gear pump indicator light, over ride button, and much more. All parts and installation instructions are included.

The emergency gear extension system uses a pressure switch on both the up and the down side of the hydraulic system to turn the hydraulic pump off. The electric microswitches only operate the indicator lights, thereby eliminating several possible failure modes, and simplifies troubleshooting. The installation provides a completely independent system for emergency gear extension in the event of total electrical or primary hydraulic system failure.

Part No:




Side Brace And Down Lock Retrofit Kit – G-III

This new system no longer relies only on the side braces moving over center. Now, as the side braces move into over center position, a down-lock hook engages a pin at the side brace knuckle to ensure that the main gear are solidly locked in the over center position.

These new side braces also have a larger cross section area for increased strength.

This installation is required if the emergency gear extension system is going to be installed.

The emergency gear extension system uses a separate, compact and lightweight hydraulic actuator to release the up-lock hook and allow you to manually pump the gear into the extended and locked position.

The side braces and down lock installation were standard in Glasair III’s shipped after 9/21/91, Kit #3238.

  Static Port Installation

This installation is part of the (above) Pitot Static System but is designed for those builders who already have an existing two tube pitot head and want to incorporate an improved system for airspeed accuracy.

Working cooperatively with builders in the field we found a suitable fuselage location. This fuselage static port was incorporated in our flying Glasair III and we were pleased with the increased accuracy of our airspeed numbers, particularly in the upper speed range.

Retrofitting (or new installation) of this fuselage static source can be done very easily. Glasair Aviation, LLC has a small aluminum static port (about the size of a quarter) which is installed onto the fuselage skin of the aircraft. Included with this static port kit is ¼” OD blue nylon tubing (to denote static lines), connectors, instructions, and a combination cockpit alternate static source/low point drain.

  Brake Lining Kit

Replacement brake linings for Cleveland brakes. Since all Glasair models use differential braking to assist in directional control, it is important to replace the linings before they are worn excessively. Excessively worn linings may allow the O-ring on the brake piston to move past its seal in the caliper, resulting in loss of fluid pressure and immediate brake failure, not to mention the damaged discs.

For a number of years Cleveland offered standard organic and heavy duty asbestos brake linings for their wheels and brakes. In January 1988 the two types of linings were discontinued and a single, improved brake lining was introduced. The prices are higher than the older types of linings but performance and durability are greatly improved. Kit includes 2 lings and riits (enough for one wheel).

Strobe & Lighting Packages

In order to simplify the ordering of strobe and light packages, Glasair Aviation, LLC has put together the following packages. You may order the whole nav and strobe requirements using this method, or choose the system that you desire and purchase the individual kits as needed. When specifying the package, realize that our invoice will indicate the individual kits within the package and not the package itself. Part numbers given are 14 volt and are later model Glasair configuration. Please reference individual packages for 28 volt part numbers or Glasair I configuration if applicable.

NOTE: If you order by the package system, and you already have the strobe wire harnesses or the clear wing tip lenses, please specify this, or if there is any alteration from the packages listed below.


Anticollision strobes (part number 221-0460-501) are mounted on the outside of the wing tips, nav lamps (part number 221-0419-501) in the colored wing tip lenses and a standard tail light kit (part number 212-0599-501). Two strobe light wire harnesses (part number 210-0417-120) are also needed.


The nave strobe combo package is designed for those who want the cleanest installation. The nav strobe combo kit (part number 211-0421-501) is installed in clear wing tips (part number 672- 0376-003/004). This gives strobe and nav lamp requirements for the front of the airframe. The nav strobe tail light (part number 212-0601-501) is needed for the strobe/nav requirements for the rear of the airframe. Two strobe light wire harnesses (part number 210-0417-120) are also needed.


This package has the strobes, nav lights and tail lights all in one unit (part number 211-0420-501). Mounted on the outside of the wing tips, it gives full coverage of the airframe for all requirements. Easiest to install, but also the most drag. It is not a good installation for the Glasair II, II-S, Super II or III kits because the Hoerner wing tips supplied with the kit have cutouts for the nav lens already molded into the parts. Two strobe light wire harnesses (part number 210-0417-120) are also needed.

Anticollision Strobe Light Kit

This kit includes a Whelen model A413-A power supply, two A-612 magnifying lenses, two A-610 flash tube assemblies, and installation instructions.

Electric Flap

This custom/simple installation uses a jackscrew which mechanically free wheels at its travel limit eliminating the need for limit switches and gives infinite positioning possibilities. This will also increase the standard flap travel from the existing 34 degrees to approximately 50 degrees for increased drag, as well as eliminating the flap handle in the cockpit. Installation comes complete with all materials needed and detailed instructions.

Note: This installation is required with the Slotted Flap Installation.

image CherryMax Flush-Head Blind Rivets

Let’s be frank: there are a handful of holes along the forward wing spar in the area of the strut beam that are a bear to rivet with standard, driven rivets. Although it is possible to buck all these rivets, many builders have inquired about the possibility of using blind rivets in these locations. That’s perfectly fine, as long as the rivets are equally as strong as regular AN426AD4’s, and only CherryMax rivets meet that criterion, These CR3212-4-8 rivets are just the right size for riveting the skins to the forward spar.

Part No:
image Torque Seal

This colorful paste is primarily an inspection aid device. The seal paste is placed between two objects (example, the nut on a bolt) that we want to make sure are not moving relative to each other. If the seal is broken, movement has taken place and further action should be taken. Also great for indicating completion or final torque.

The set includes five colors (pink, green, blue, yellow and orange). Use one color for gear up hydraulics, one for gear down and so on.
