Created in August 1997, the DUC Hélices company is specialized in the manufacture of aeronautical carbon propellers mainly in the field of light aviation.

Very quickly, the company proved the quality of its products developed by Vincent DUQUEINE, its founder, who works in the field of composite materials since 1982, gaining considerable expertise in the implementation of these materials

Located in Lentilly near Lyon, the DUC Hélices company is very easy to access.


DUC Hélices quickly obtained a worldwide reputation and carriers out more than 70% for export. 35 manufacturers and industrial rely on DUC products, equipping their aircraft propellers in our first climbs.

Since its creation, a full range of propellers was designed to meet all types of aircraft ultralight aircraft from 40hp up to four places 180cv.

DUC propellers are subject of a new generation of products developed with new technologies used in many high-tech sectors.

Today, DUC Hélices strives to answer all the problems of its users by providing a full range of accessories to get the best possible performance from their machine.

Always at the forefront of innovation, the Research Department of DUC Hélices works on new solutions for new product development. A dynamic team provides maintenance and usage tips.
Certified ISO 9001:2008 for its System of Quality Management, its objectives remain to provide high quality products with excellent performance, as aerodynamic noise.

Also, share its resources within its Engineering and Design Office, the company is present in several development projects for major manufacturers of aircraft and UAV.

Very active on the UAV market, DUC Hélices is able to meet the high requirements to equip a UAV. Indeed, new technology solutions have been developed (protection against lightning ...) and many qualification tests were conducted (vibration, shock, salt fog, humidity ...).

Our strengths:
  • Significant experience in composites
  • A renowned in light aviation
  • The patented Carbone Forgé® developed by Vincent DUQUEINE for the manufacture of composite parts, greatly increasing the mechanical strength
  • A maximum reactivity
  • A desk study dynamic
