No problem!

You can give my e-mail I wrote in a post above to your buyer, because I can repeat those infos and I would like to have some bigger pictures of the decals and the markings on the flat sides of the hub and a close up of the airworthy stamp on the side (under the serial and prop numbers).
Don't be disappointed: propellers for schools with the marking "Ecole" are pretty rare.

A last question: How do you took it from France to Canada (and at which cost)?

Regards,
PM

PM, as for shipping props internationally I have used IPSparcel now for a number of props and found it very inexpensive, and they handle the customs so a broker is not required. In fact, many international shipments have ended up close to domestic shipments in price, and IPS uses the same carriers, like FedEx, UPS, and DHL. If you construct an inexpensive sturdy crate damage can be avoided and I usually don't bother with the insurance.

Duty and tax may be charged separately to the receiver, but the shipping cost for such a large item is surprisingly low - usually about half what the carriers themselves would charge if contracted directly.

Maybe, as I haven't actually shipped from Europe to U.S. but I did ask at one point and I believe they told me it could be done easily. Maybe it requires a U.S. user, however.

You are right! I emailed them and they told me to click "Import Shipment Quote".
I tried a quote it and it works. Prices are higher than the other way... but we are used in France to pay higher prices for everything except medical...
Thanks a lot Dave!
