Aeroprakt issues rudder cables safety alert

Example of cable damage


Following two rudder cable breakages on A22LS aircraft, the Aeroprakt factory has issued a safety alert covering all A22 and A22L aircraft with over 500 hours engine running time and all A22LS and A22L2 aircraft over 5 years old or over 500 hours engine running time.

The alert requires an urgent check of both left and right rudder cables to ensure there is no wear or fraying of the cables, particularly close to the pulley guides. If any wear is seen or broken strands are found, the rudder cables must be replaced.
