PRESIDENTS MESSAGE October 2021
Chapter 1111 members,
(NOTE: due to scheduling conflicts with our host, we’ve had to move our meeting date to the SECOND WEDNESDAY of the month, same time–5:30 pm–same place, the Cascade FBO classroom)This last month has been a busy one. The last of the season’s flying events like Hood River and Reno were both attended by Chapter 1111 members as detailed below. There has been a lot of recent activity in airplane ownership changes and some new aircraft appearing in the area, like Brian Fleming’s (formerly David Price’s) Cessna 195 on floats and yet another plane showing up at Kelly Quick’s overflowing workshop. Mark Edward’s FrankenFox is approaching the finishing stages while Jim and MaryAnn McClellan’s RV-7A is already there.If you can’t make the meeting this month, keep following the newsletter, as we will try to include all the chapter activity you send us.Also remember, we will hold our chapter officer elections at the November meeting. Speaking of the meeting, we will hold it inside the FBO classroom for the rest of the year. Big Al will provide his usual surprise meal and we will have a safety discussion organized by our own Teresa Wilson.We hope to see you Wednesday October 13 at 5:30 pm for our monthly get-together!Garnet

October TECH REPORT
EAA CHAPTER 1111 October 2021 TECH ADVISOR REPORT
BY JERRY SORRELL
TECH COUNSELOR REPORT OCTOBER 2021
SERVICE BULLETINS AND AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES
This topic is actually about risk management; especially if the aircraft you are building or own is in the EXPERIMENTAL CATEGORY.
At the bottom of this report is a link to the FAA position on service bulletins and airworthiness directives.
For the experimentals, there is much leeway allowed in choosing whether or not to follow a service bulletin (SB) or an airworthiness directive (AD). BUT……
First, if your insurance company says your coverage is contingent on complying with SB’s and AD’s, then it means just that, and its often in the fine print near the end where it says your insurance is void if the aircraft is damaged due to civil unrest or nuclear attack. (Really)
Second: The engine and air frame manufacturer may say their warranty is void if applicable SB’s or AD’s are not followed. Again, that may be in the fine print. Same goes for an engine rebuild shop.
For an example, dual electronic ignition on a Lycoming or Continental is not likely an approved accessory. Even if FAA approves an accessory with a supplemental type certificate (STC) , that does not mean the manufacturer is in agreement and may still void the engine warranty due to a factory unapproved modification. Lycoming and Continental have never accepted auto gas in low compression engines covered by STC’s issued by Peterson. ( Caution, The STC people call for the engine to be broken in with Avgas due the lead needed during that time period. Engine trouble in the early hours of breakin will face less factory resistance if the engine was running on Avgas.)https://www.faa.gov/news/safety_briefing/fact_sheets/media/SE_Topic_ServiceBulletins_AircraftOwner.pdf
