THE BRITISH GLIDING ASSOCIATION HAS ISSUED A MANDATORY GLUE JOINTS INSPECTION NOTICE
Schleicher Ka 1, Ka 2, Ka 2B, Ka 3, Rhönlercher II (Ka 4), Ka 6 series, K7, K7 conversions, K8 series, K10, ASK 13 series, ASK 14, ASK 16, ASK 18 series and all variants of each type. (This inspection is strongly recommended for the motor glider types listed above). In Australia we have not noted failures and we suspect due to the drier climate that failures may not be occurring. We are therefore not mandating inspections but hereby issue the BGA Mandatory Inspection to advise inspectors. Please consider the attached BGA Inspection notice 042/07/2004 Issue 05.
