MANUFACTURER: Lindstrand Balloons
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-06-15
SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive
(AD) for the products listed above.
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
The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: Defective burner
hoses have been identified which might develop a leak.
A significant leak, if it was ignited, could hazard the balloon
Since the issue of AD G-2003-0010 there have been
occurrences of hose failure in batches not identified in the
earlier bulletins. LHAB Service Bulletin (SB) No 11 supersedes the
earlier SBs and revises the applicability as required.
This AD requires actions that are intended to address the unsafe
condition described in the MCAI.
