A single-blade propeller may be used on aircraft to generate thrust. Normally propellers are multiblades but the simplicity of a single-blade propeller fits well on motorized gliders, because it permits the design of a smaller aperture of the glider fuselage for retraction of the powerplant. The counterbalanced teetering mono-blade propeller generates fewer vibrations than conventional multiblade configurations.[citation needed] Single-blade propellers are also more efficient, as the blade passes through clean air, where in multi-blade propellers, each blade passes through turbulent air from the previous blade.
