Aircraft Foibles

WASHINGTON (CN) - It's business as usual at the Federal Aviation Administration. The agency has issued regulations directing aircraft owners and operators to fix certain problems on their aircraft.

Among them are: in L-13 Blanik Gliders with cracks where the forward and aft control sticks attach to the connecting rod, breakage could lead to loss of control of the sailplane; in Airbus A300, A300-600, and A310 the violent opening of a passenger door after landing can cause injuries; and in Airbus A318, A319, A320, and A321, the nose landing gear could retract without warning, allowing the plane to hit the ground.Click herefor details and other new regulations.
