Aeroprakt has issued two new service bulletins which amend the Aircraft Maintenance Manual (AMM) and Pilot Operating Handbook (POH) for certain A22 aircraft – check the bulletins (see below) to see if your aircraft is affected.
Bulletin IB A-22LS-11 requires amendment to the AMM of certain A22L2 and A22LS aircraft. It covers revised mandatory propeller inspections. If you own either an A22L2 or A22LS, please download a copy of the bulletin either by clicking here: AMM – Propeller Inspections or by clicking the bulletin name at the start of this paragraph.
Bulletin SB A-22LS-12 is an amendment to the POH and concerns changes to the aircraft manoeuvring speed. ASTM International (formerly the American Society for Testing & Materials), which governs Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) standards, has changed the definition of aircraft manoeuvring speed from ‘maximum’ (Va) to ‘operating’ (Vo). To comply with this revised definition, the yellow arc on the Air Speed Indicator and description in the POH should be amended as per the bulletin. Please download a copy of the bulletin either by clicking here: POH – Manoeuvring Speed or by clicking the bulletin name at the start of this paragraph.
