Safety Action

Summary

Local safety action

During the investigation of this occurrence, several Lancair and amateur-built aircraft of other types were found with similar non-compliant engine oil hose fittings. The deficiencies found with the engine installations and documented aerodynamic stalling speeds were referred to CASA. In October 1998, CASA issued AD/LYC/86 Amdt 2, to highlight that any replacement of the steel oil line must comply with the Technical Service Order specifying high heat tolerance (Type D) hoses.
