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 here for details and other new regulations.
