Hang Loop Recall - Recent Sport 2 and U2 Gliders
A customer recently discovered greatly accelerated wear on a hang loop where the loop attaches to the tang which is bolted
to the kingpost on a U2 145. Current production models that use this type of hang loop are all U2’s and all Sport 2’s.
Recently manufactured replacement hang loops for other models using a kingpost hang system are also affected by this
inspection – recall notice. We do not know the exact time period to which the recall applies, but we know at least one
defective loop was produced as early as March of 2011, so we recommend inspections of all loops made up to 6 months
prior to that.
Please see TB20110825R - Hang Loop Inspection - Recall - Kingpost Hang Models (Note: Tech Bulletin REVISED 4/13/2012)) for instructions.
This Technical Bulletin does not apply to Falcon 3 or T2/T2C gliders.
