Technical Advisory

 

Remember to replace your side wires regularly

We have just had another report of a pilot flying with damaged side wires.

We published a Technical Advisory with some photos some time ago about this issue. Click Here.

The UK pilot had a reasonable short flight, but in some rough conditions to 10500 feet. After landing, he discovered that one of his side wires were badly damaged with all but three strands broken at the bottom of the control frame.

We must emphasis that the side wires must be replaced every year or 50 hours. The glider in question hadn't had them replaced for nearly two years.

Please check your side wires regularly and replace them as required.
