Founded in 1997, DUC Hélices company is specialized in the design and manufacture of aeronautical carbon composite propellers mainly in the field of lignt aviation.

Very quickly, the company proved the quality of its products by considerable know-how in the implementation of composite materials.

Since its creation, a complete range of propellers has been developed to equip any type of aircraft from 40 to 210 hp

Based on the aerodrome of Villefranche - Tarare (LFHV) in Frontenas (69 - Rhône - FRANCE), near Lyon, DUC Hélices is very easy to access.

DUC Hélices is rapidly gaining world renown and is exporting more than 70%. 35 manufacturers and industrial rely on DUC products by equipping their equipment with our first-generation propellers.
Since its creation, a complete range of propellers has been designed to meet all types of aircraft from the 40-hp ULM to the four-seat 210-hp aircraft.
DUC propellers are the subject of a new generation of products developed with new technologies used in many advanced sectors.

Today, DUC Propellers strives to answer all the problems of its users by putting at their disposal a complete range of accessories to obtain the best possible yield of their machine.

Always at the forefront of innovation, DUC Propellers Design Office is working on new solutions for the development of new products. A dynamic team ensures the maintenance and advice of use.


Certified ISO 9001: 2015 for its Quality Management System, its objectives are still to offer high quality products with excellent performance, both aerodynamic and acoustic.

Also, thanks to its resources within its Design Office, the company is present in several development projects for major aircraft and drone manufacturers.

Very present on the drone market, DUC Hélices is able to meet the strong requirements required to equip a drone. Indeed, new technology solutions have been developed (protection against lightning, ...) and many qualification tests have been conducted (vibratory, shocks, salt spray, humidity, ...).

Our strengths :

Considerable experience of composite materials
The Forged Carbon® process developed by Vincent DUQUEINE, a process that has been the subject of a manufacturing patent and which considerably increases the mechanical strength of composite parts
Maximum reactivity
