pusher propeller
Tractor propeller.
pusher propeller
Predator tactical unmanned aerial vehicle with a pusher propeller located at the rear.
An arrangement in which the propeller or the airscrew is behind the engine, and it pushes the airplane rather than pulling it. The advantage of this arrangement is that the absence of an engine nacelle forward of the wing permits unrestricted airflow over the wing. The opposite version is a tractor propeller.

The latter design employs a co-axial rotor combined with a pusher propeller that has its origins in Sikorsky's X2 and S-97 Raider technology demonstrators.
The PT6A engine's flexible architecture and modular reverse-flow design simplify installation in both single- and twin-engine installations as well as tractor and pusher propeller configurations.
Because of the clearance required between the pusher propeller and the ground, the pilot or passenger used to be seated quite low to the ground, which by default meant that the thrust line was much higher than is safe or practical.
The PT6A is not just one engine it's a family of engines using an innovative, modular and flexible reverse flow design which simplifies installation in both single engine and twin engine installations, as well as, in tractor and pusher propeller configurations.

Like the X2 demonstrator aircraft, the single engine S-97 RAIDER helicopter will feature coaxial counter-rotating main rotors and a pusher propeller to provide cruise speeds up to 220 knots (253 mph) with dash speeds up to 240 knots (276 mph) or higher.
The German warplanes feature innovative technology, including electrically operated flaps and landing gear on the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 F; the first ejection seats, in the Heinkel He 219 A Uhu; and a rear pusher propeller in addition to a conventional front propeller on the Dornier Do 335 A Pfeil.
Taylor and his team came up with a design that allowed a small, two-seat car to be converted into flight mode within five minutes by attaching a pusher propeller and wings.
