Service Center

Gerd Muhlbauer Founder and General Manager MT Propellers hands over the Service station Licence to Dathon Ace LTD CEO David Thuo. Dathon Ace Limited becomes the first MT Service Centre in East and Central Africa.

Join us in celebrating our newest win at Dathon Ace Limited. We are now an “MT Propeller Service Centre” for East and Central Africa approved to carry out overhauls on the MTV series propellers. I had a great time taking part in the training at The MT Factory in Germany with my Propeller Division Manager Francis Ndungu especially on the OJT on the props where we got extensive exposure that equipped us with the all-round relevant skills required to carry out the overhaul process.

We are excited to join the other 62 worldwide service centers and to be the first in our region and third in Africa joining the centers in South Africa and Namibia.

MT-Propellers has created more than 30 certified propeller models, until now that can be combined with more than 220 aerodynamic blade designs to make a custom fit for every application. This has already led to more than 220 STCs worldwide to retrofit existing airplanes with MT-Propellers.

Now MT-Propellers has become a major player in the propeller industry supplying many piston and turbine engines with the 2,3,4,5 bladed propellers. They have gone on to develop a 7,9 and in 2022 tested an 11 bladed propeller fitted on a PA31T1 equipped with the P&W PT6A-135A turbines.

The demand for overhaul and repairs on these props has been huge leading to long down times of up to 10 weeks for clients. Dathon Ace LTD will now offer a solution to this problem by reducing down time with the service conveniently accessible to clients in the region and beyond. We hope to reduce this downtime to a nominal 1 week with advance prior planning.

Reach us at or for further follow up discussions on the STCs available on the different aircraft including Cessna Caravans, Donnier 228s Kingairs, Pilatus, Diamonds amongst others and how we can support your upcoming overhauls.
