G109B AD Update 1/9/13
Please see attached an approved Global AMOC for an alternative inspection method and an additional 3 month time extension to FAA AD 2012-10-11, paragraphs (f)(1)(ii) and (f)(1)(iii). This AD affects Grob Model G 109 and G 109B powered sailplanes. The current compliance due date of paragraphs (f)(1)(ii) and (f)(1)(iii), based on a previous Global AMOC, is January 09, 2013. The requester of the Global AMOC, Mr. Ron Schwenninger, has given his permission for this letter to be posted online for the benefit of all operators. It will be posted to the www.regulations.gov website although it may take a few days to actually appear. I appreciate any help you can provide to get this information disseminated to the sailplane community through the normal channels of the SSA.
Thanks and Best Regards,
