Prop Feather

Hi everyone and Happy New Year !
Does it mean the feathering position comes after full coarse pitch stops, or is it Casa wording, or have I misunderstood a concept ?
Thanks

Yes, when a constant speed propeller is feathered, it is beyond the normal coarse pitch stops and the blades are streamlined to the airflow. The propeller pitch control always has a 'feather gate' to prevent the pilot from inadvertently selecting feather. It is often a friction gate that requires definite extra pressure to pass through.

The correct answer is 'streamlined to the airflow'.

Thank you Bob. That make sense and I wouldn't be asking if I had a chance to fly CSU aircraft.
Cheers!
