FLIGHT CONTROLS - CONTROL STICK MOUNTING – INSPECTION REPLACEMENT

The manufacturer advises through his Mandatory Bulletin that there has been reports of the Puchacz control column breaking away from its mounting and further occurrences where cracking has been found in the mounting sockets. The GFA has additionally received one such failure report.  If not corrected, the failure may lead to a loss of control and/or jamming or restriction of flight control due to foreign object damage (FOD). Before further flight and at each annual inspection after the effective date of this Airworthiness Directive, inspect control column and attachments in accordance with Allstar PZL Glider Mandatory Bulletin No. BE-055/SZD-50-3/2004 ‘Puchacz’.
