FLIGHT CONTROLS - CONTROL STICKS AND BRIDGE - INSPECTION / REPLACEMENT

This Airworthiness Directive (AD) is prompted by the discovery of cracks on L13 BLANIK sailplanes in zones where the forward and aft control sticks are attached to the connecting rod, designated as ‘control bridge’ in the relevant Illustrated Parts Catalogue (IPC). If left uncorrected, cracks could propagate and lead to failure of the connecting rod with subsequent loss of control of the sailplane. For the reasons outlined above, this AD requires an inspection of the control bridge to detect cracks and replacement, if necessary. Aircraft Industries a.s.
