Constant Speed Unit (CSU) Endorsement

Constant Speed Unit (CSU) Endorsement

Faster and more powerful propeller aircraft typically feature a Constant Speed Unit (CSU) propeller system.

A constant speed propeller is a type of propeller that can change its blade pitch to take better advantage of the power supplied by an engine in much the same way that a transmission in a car takes better advantage of its power source.

At Atlas Aviation we have a number of aircraft types that feature CSU’s including:
  • T6/24
  • CT4E
  • EXTRA300L
  • PIPER SENECA(Twin)
  • PIPER TWIN COMMANCHE
  • PIPER PA60 AEROSTAR
  • Beechcrat Duke (Twin)
Course Overview
During ground and flight training you will cover explore the following:
  • CSU Principles of Operation
  • Pre-Flight Considerations
  • Cockpit Controls & Indicators
  • Power Settings & Limits
  • Before Take-off Checks
  • Procedures for Adding/Removing Power
  • General Aircraft Handling
  • CSU Malfunctions
  • Emergency Procedures
  • Circuits

At the completion of the course you will be issued with a Constant Speed Unit (CSU) design feature endorsement in your logbook and be type checked to private hire our current generation Cessna 182’s. In order to fly our G1000 equipped glass-cockpit C182’s you must have completed the Glass Cockpit Conversion course.

This course may be combined with our Retractable Undercarriage Endorsement course to receive both endorsements in a cost and time effective way.
