A drive shaft, propeller shaft, carden shaft or driving shaft is a mechanical part used for the transmission of torque and the applied rotation to the driven components. The drive shaft is usually employed for the connection of components of a drive train to other parts that are not connected directly due to the long gap between them.

For the proper alignment between the driven and the driving components, the drive shaft is often incorporated with one or multiple couplings or universal joints. Thus, the combination of the drive shaft and the appropriate coupling plays an important role in the transmission of motion from the driving assembly to the driven assembly in an aircraft. For the proper functioning of the drive shaft and the couplings, manufacture and the design of these components play significant roles. The materials used for the manufacturing of these components should be of high standards as these components are subjected to high shear stress and torsion, which can even cause breakdown of the aircraft while in operation. Hence, they must therefore be durable enough to tolerate the stress and its corresponding forces, at the same time, avoid additional weight that would in turn upsurge the inertia of the aircraft.
