Rudder Locks

Members please be aware RACWA will no longer be using the rudder lock system.

This is due to significant damage from them being incorrectly fitted and consequently sustained by, the 152 fleet over the past several years.

Members are reminded to pay additional attention to the rudder stops; the 5 cent sized disks on the lower rear fuselage during their preflight inspection.

Any visible damage needs to be reported and inspected by maintenance staff prior to any flight.

If there are any additional queries regarding this, please direct them to an instructor.
We appreciate our member’s patience and understanding of this situation.
