Rear bulkhead cracks

Recommended Posts

If I owned one of these - and I wouldn't - this would be a very, very worrying announcement.

Quite disconcerting imagining the movement in the main structure to cause this.

Movement that caused it, or movement that occurred after it cracked?

 

To cause a crack does not require much, if any movement, just a stress.

This report is for the EV-97 European models 472kg MTOW, to my knowledge these are not here in Australian and I would expect that all the LSA Sportstar models would have the upgraded fuselage like in FIG 2 of page 1.

 

I would still do an inspection but I think we have nothing to fear here in our models, this AD doesn't even appear to come from the factory itself..

 

EuroStar SL

 

Model for the European ultralight category, with a gross weight of 1,041 lb (472 kg)[2][5]

 

EuroStar SLW

 

Model for the European ultralight category, with a gross weight of 1,041 lb (472 kg)[6]
