Service Bulletin #0018 - Insufficient swaging of oval sleeves on the rudder cables [All Models]

Post by PhilipRueker »

SERVICE BULLETIN #0018
INSUFFICIENT SWAGING OF OVAL SLEEVES ON THE RUDDER CABLE
RELEASE DATE: 2020/07/28

EFFECTIVE DATE: 2020/07/28

SUBJECT: Insufficient swaging of oval sleeves on the rudder

MODELS AFFECTED: All Sling Aircraft – Manufactured before effective date 2020/07/28

COMPLIANCE TIME: At the next MPI (Mandatory Periodic Inspection)

LABOUR TIME: 2 Hours

DESCRIPTION: The Service Bulletin provides the instructions for the inspection of crimp widths on the rudder cable oval sleeves as internal quality checks have shown that some cables may have been insufficiently swaged.

Insufficient swaging of oval sleeves could result in the rudder cable slipping out of the oval sleeve and subsequent loss of directional control of the aircraft.

The Service Bulletin requires that inspections be carried out on all kit-built aircraft still under construction prior to first flight.

contact sales@slingaircraft.com and they can add you to the list they send out updates when there's a new one.
And they are also all available on the sling website: https://www.slingaircraft.com/owner-support/sling-tsi/
