Local control flight after a maintenance operation.
In flight, the speed of the right engine decreased by 50%. No alarm sounded. The pilot decided to land at the Colmar airfield. During the landing, with the reduction of the power, the propeller of the right engine feathered.
The check of the oil pressure of the gearbox gave an indication of 12 bars at idle, instead of the 20 bars recommended by the manufacturer. Two valves, the "prop control valve" and the "pressure regulating valve" have been replaced.
