Wondered what an AMOC was. It is:

Blanik L-13 Alternative Method of Compliance.

Look here for the details.

Rather appropriate that this was approved by
"the Small Airplane Directorate (SAD)"

Note that all work must be done at Blanik Aircraft CZ in the Czech Republic.

Anybody in the USA thinking of sending their L-13 to CZ to have this done? Our club might. Let's keep in touch and share a shipping container?

Three Blaniks are being fitted into a container in Bozeman, MT for shipment to the factory. All three were inspected by the factory president, who was in the US on a business trip, for verification of their ability to be repaired and service life hour extension per the AMOC. All pre repair FAA notifications have been done and acknowledged by the FAA. Greg Mecklenburg has been the driving force behind getting this done. Tom

The Penn State Soaring Club has two Blaniks that are currently sitting in a hangar, and we would potentially be interested in sending these things overseas for repair in a container with another club's Blaniks.

Send me an email.

Curious what it would cost to "ship a factory tech" to a small geographic area, put them up and feed them to do multiple jobs at one place?
Not sure the AMOC allows this, but doing 3 or 4+ in one spot may make it cheaper, maybe.
Just thinking out loud.

It will be interesting to find out the cost per aircraft (plus shipping) for the AMOC repair. Please enlighten us when the number is known. It will help other L-13 owners make a decision about the fate of their gliders. Repair or recycle into beer cans?

Does the AMOC require shipping the entire glider?
Or just the wings?
