S10 FAA AD Firewall Modification
Docket No. 2002-CE-29-AD; Amendment 39-12928; AD 2002-22-04
This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain
Stemme GmbH & Co. KG (Stemme) Model S10-VT sailplanes. This AD requires you to modify the engine compartment fuel and oil system and firewall. This AD is the result of mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the airworthiness authority for Germany. The actions specified by this AD are intended to reduce the potential for a fire to ignite in the engine compartment and increase the containment of an engine fire in the engine compartment. A fire in the engine compartment could lead to loss of control of the sailplane.
