TO:                     Model I, II, and III Owners

SUBJECT:           Flaperon Hinge Bearings MANDATORY

FROM:                SkyStar Aircraft Corporation

Several Kitfox™ Model I, II, & III owners have reported that some hinge bearings on the flaperon torque tube have slid to one side and out of the hinge bushing. Because of the potential problems that this could create, your safety makes compliance with this Service Bulletin MANDATORY.

INSTRUCTIONS: Make sure the bearing is centered into the hinge bushing. Per the drawing below, drill and rivet two 3/32”x1/8” Alum. rivets through the skin and into the flaperon toque tube 1/4” out board of each hinge opening. Creating these “stops” will hold the bearings in place.

Questions regarding this procedure can be directed to our technical department, at 208-454-1443 or by FAX; 208-466-7194.
