CASA have released Airworthiness Bulletin AWB 27-001 Issue 3 regarding the inspection and replacement of certain stainless steel fittings used in aircraft control systems. Jabiru Aircraft do not use the exact fittings mentioned in this bulletin, however we use the same materials in a similar manner. The content of this bulletin is therefore applicable to Jabiru Aircraft and operators must comply with its requirements. Click here to access this bulletin.

RA-Aus Safety Bulletin "SB-002-15-08-2012-All-Aircraft-Control-Cables" has also been released on the same subject, however the official RA-Aus position is that the RA-Aus Bulletin is NOT applicable to Jabiru Aircraft.

The RA-Aus Bulletin has different compliance and implementation requirements to the CASA Bulletin.

Note that replacing primary control cables is a safety critical task. Failure to carry out the task correctly will result in unsafe condition. All work must be carried out by authorised personnel to current, approved data.

The latest revision of the Jabiru Aircarft Technical Manual - JTM001 -  contains details on correctly replacing cables and must be referred to for this task. operators must also be aware of the content of Jabiru Service Bulletin JSB027 - Control Cable Inspection (Kit Built Aircraft). Both of these documents are available for download from this website.

LSA Owner/Operator Responsibilities

The following responsibilities for the owner/operator of a LSA listed are prescribed in the ASTM standard F2295:


  • Each owner/operator of a LSA shall read and comply with the maintenance and continued airworthiness information and instructions provided by the manufacturer.
  • Each owner/operator of a LSA shall be responsible for providing the manufacturer with current contact information where the manufacturer may send the owner/operator supplemental notification bulletins.
  • The owner/operator of a LSA shall be responsible for notifying the manufacturer of any safety of flight issue or significant service difficulty upon discovery.
  • The owner/operator of a LSA shall be responsible for complying with all manufacturer issued notices of corrective action and for complying with all applicable aviation authority regulations in regard to maintaining the airworthiness of the LSA.
  • An owner of a LSA shall ensure that any needed corrective action be completed as specified in a notice, or by the next scheduled annual inspection.
  • Should an owner/operator not comply with any mandatory service requirement, the LSA shall be considered not in compliance with applicable ASTM standards and may be subject to regulatory action by the presiding aviation authority.
