New Service Bulletins for Vans Aircraft

#1 Post by AirFrame » Tue Feb 04, 2014 12:59 pm

Posting here in hopes of capturing RV owners who aren't already watching the Vans site or regularly.

RV-6/6A, RV-7/7A, RV-8/8A
Hoizontal Stabilizer Cracks

All RV-3, 4, 6/6A, 7/7A, 8/8A Flying aircraft
Cracks in Elevator Spar

Both recommend grounding the aircraft until an inspection is performed. Until the reinforcements are added, this becomes an annual inspection item.

LONG discussion on Vansairforce, just search for the SB number and you'll find the threads.

Airframe: thanks for that. I'd been notified on other means, but had not checked into it. My HS is hanging on the wall so it should be easy to modify as per "non-flying" plans.
