The nozzle is made of fiberglass and has a wing profile in section for getting additional propulsive force. The ventilator consists of 6 blades and the hub of aluminum alloy. Blade clumps are fixed in sockets of the hub. The hub consists of two halves which are bolted after the blades are adjusted into the sockets. The ventilator hub has a fairing cover which is fixed to the leader disk with screws.
