About Us

Sullivan Propeller Specialists began operations in 1994 when we purchased the equipment of Alaska Propeller Specialists. We have since grown into an 8,000 square foot operation in Hayward, California. We have a full time staff of propeller specialists who undergo recurrent annual training for all models of McCauley, Hartzell, and MT Propeller.

Sullivan Propeller is very involved in the aviation community. We sponsor aircraft at the Reno National Championship Air Races in Formula I, Bi-Plane and Sports Classes. Tours of our facility are available for interested groups. We have given talks to groups such as the Mount Diablo Pilots Association, the Sheriff’s Air Squadron, and the Twin Commander Owners Association.  Sullivan Propeller is a member of the Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA).

Sullivan’s highly trained staff is lead by owner Brian Sullivan. Brian has been servicing propellers and governors since 1984. He is an A&P mechanic, a private pilot, a Cessna 182 owner, and a graduate of Columbus University. He has trained at the McCauley and Hartzell factory training centers.  Brian sits on the board of the Propeller Association.

Sullivan Propeller’s FAA Repair Station number is: S5UR963J.

Kind words from a Sullivan Customer:
As an owner of an aircraft flying 300 hours per year for business travel, I need my airplane reliable and airworthy year round. I use Sullivan as my propeller shop because they give me quick and honest information as to my options on repair, upgrade or replacement. I fly in all conditions, so my life depends on my airplane, and I depend on Sullivan to keep my prop in top condition.
