Puchacz rear seat mount – urgent

More than one Puchacz in the BGA club fleet has been found to have a broken rear seat mount. This video shows the problem.

As detailed in an email sent to owners today, before the next flight owners are to use an inspector to check for cracks/splits in the rear seat tube mounts as per the video. Only apply gentle pressure.  If the seat mount is broken, ground the aircraft until a repair scheme can be worked out and please inform the BGA office as soon as practical. Please include the hours/launches and serial number in any report.
