The image below shows a B model leg from his aircraft. The other leg broke in half at the end of the landing roll, at the point marked with the red arrow. TM817-39 makes plain what needs to be inspected and what needs to be done.

As a stopgap measure before the OEM parts arrived from Germany I used a piece cut from an Ikea flexible cutting board @ 1mm thickness. We made it longer than specs and drilled two holes so that it’s retained by the mounting bolts, as well as glued.


G109A divebrake caps

Fixing G109A divebrake caps after corrosion lifts gelcoat from alloy.

Remove caps from alloy.

Beadblast with Indu (sp?) bead, an epoxy bead. (Macca wrote “3ddflux”)

Avail from Burwool or Abrasive Blasting

When beadblasting is almost completed use a lupe (a 10x magnifier) to check that there are no black bits left.

Then paint with Allodyne (sp), a compound designed to seal aluminium alloy. Then paint with 2pack and then gelcoat over the top.

All the above needs checking and editing.

G109A Canopy Hinges

Nigel Baker reports that a canopy went solo in Sept 2011. They landed safely sans maps, headsets and of course canopy which is still AWOL.

    I don’t quite understand your question, Jacques. Is it some factory documentation you’re looking for, or perhaps technical information about the canopy?

    Hellow everyone!

    After literally dozens of hours searching the web, making phone calls and sending emails I finally found a reliable source for master cylinders and and rebuild kits for the Grob G-109A.

    Gentleman’s name is Jorg Bohnenstiel

    His email address is bomoto at t-online.de

    He is excellent to deal with.
