Service Letter #18

Subject:      Preflight Inspection of Rudder Cables

To:              All Kitfox™ Owners

From:          Denney Aerocraft Company

A Kitfox™ builder reports that during the second annual inspection of his aircraft he discovered a frayed rudder cable. His aircraft has about 300 hours total time.

The cable had worn through the plastic bushing and rubbed on the steel rudder cable guide under the seat.

A broken rudder cable and subsequent loss of rudder control could have very serious consequences.

We recommend that each Kitfox™ owner include as part of his preflight inspection a very thorough examination of the rudder cables.
