EACH blade of an airscrew is submitted to an elementary static balance check after it has been completed. But this operation does not eliminate the necessity to carry out a general balance of the complete airscrew. This is carried out statically, first of all for the hub alone, and then statically and dynamically for the completely assembled airscrew.
