Weak links are required to protect the sailplane against overloading during launch operations. The strength of the spar of an aircraft is calculated on the basis of a given maximum load. The type and rating of the weak link used during the launch must meet the requirements of the sailplane as described in the Type Certificate Data Sheet (TCDS). This bulletin provides guidance on the selection, use and testing of weak links.
