Airworthiness Directive for Glasflugel gliders

The FAA has issued an airworthiness directive (AD) effective November 18, 2018 for Glasflugel Models Club Libelle 205, H 301 “Libelle,” H 301B “Libelle,” Kestrel, Mosquito, Standard “Libelle,” and Standard Libelle-201B gliders. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product.  The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as jamming between the double two-ring end of the towing cable and the deflector angles of the CG release mechanism. We are issuing the AD to prevent failure of the towing cable to disconnect, which could result in reduced or loss of control of the glider or the cable breaking and causing injury to people on the ground.

A copy of the Federal register entry and the AD is here.  A copy of the referenced technical note is here.
