Rudder clamps for tow out gear

09 Aug 2016 11:40 | Anonymous member

The use of ground handling gear on the DG's has highlighted a situation where the rudder could be blown side wards and foul on the tow arm that connects the glider to a car, resulting in damage to the rudder that could easily ground the aircraft..

Alan Payne has made a red rudder clamp that stops the rudder from fouling on the tow arm. Please ensure this is used when ever the tow out gear is used.

Many thanks to Alan for making the clamp.
