Airworthiness Directives; Schempp-Hirth Flugzeugbau GmbH Gliders
Document Number: 2021-22680
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-10-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Schempp-Hirth Flugzeugbau GmbH Model Duo Discus and Duo Discus T gliders. This proposed AD was prompted by mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as jerky extension of the air brakes at very high air speeds, including cases where the air brake blades interlock. This proposed AD would require replacing certain air brake end stop bushings, inspecting certain other air brake end stops, and repairing if necessary. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
