FAA Issues AD for BLanik L-13

FAA Issues AD for Blanik L-13

The FAA has issued an Airworthiness Directive for the LET Blanik L-13 with an effective date of July 19th, which requires an inspection of the spar before further flight. This is a serious structural concern and is already an EASA (European) AD and the subject of a Mandatory Bulletin from the manufacturer. SSA urges all members who fly the affected aircraft to perform the inspections according to the FAA AD and report the results to the FAA as requested. SSA also urges all owners and operators to make any other concerns with the AD known directly to the FAA. When a final or amended FAA rule is drafted the inspections may or may not need to be repeated or performed in a different manner.

Questions or concerns should be addressed directly to the FAA contact identified in the AD, Mr. Greg Davison at the FAA Small Airplane Directorate in Kansas City at 816 329 4130.

The AD is here.

The reference EASA and LET documents are here and here.
