EASA has approved the life extension Service Bulletin No. BE-064/50-3/2022 for SZD-50-3 for Puchacz airframes. The service life extension is from 6750 hours to 12000 hours.
The intention is that these airframes will not necessarily have to go back to Poland for this work to be done. The Service Bulletin will in due course be available on application to SZD Allstar. It should be noted this life extension will require a kit of new parts and the price and labour requirement to implement are yet to be determined.
