AD: Glaser-Dirks/Flugzeugbau GmbH

AD NUMBER: 2006-02-12
MANUFACTURER: Glaser Dirks, DG Flugzeugbau GMBH
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2006-02-12
SUMMARY:
The FAA adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Glaser-Dirks Flugzeugbau GmbH Models DG-100 and DG-400 sailplanes and certain DG Flugzeugbau GmbH Models DG-500 Elan Series and DG-500M sailplanes. This AD requires you to modify or replace the complete rudder mount assembly and ensure that the securing washer, castellated nut, and new split pins are installed. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the airworthiness authority for Germany. We are issuing this AD to prevent the universal bearing of the lower rudder mounting from slipping out of the bearing support. The universal bearing slipping out could result in the rudder separating from its support. This failure could lead to loss of sailplane control during flight operations.
