Default IS-28B2 Twin Lark - Service Life Extension Program

I just saw this posted by Mandy Temple, President of the Gliding Federation of Australia.
This approval may just be for operation in Australia, but even if so is a start.

IS28 Life Extension
There is now a simple method to extend the life of IS28 gliders beyond 35 years. Rob Hanbury, with help from a young pilot Bogdan Hiticas, has set up a system piggybacking off the Romanian EASA approval. For more information contact Rob Hanbury Airworthiness Department Chair

Hi, Pete ("edenpete") from UK here. Good news.I have been invited to apply to the Rumanian Aeroclub for the package related to their STC to extend the life of my IS-28B2("Lark" 2-seater). This will cost 500 Euro (glider specific, based on serial number). This will be necessary for all EASA gliders, it will be up to your own country's technical organisation to decide what steps it wishes to take regarding this, if outside EASA.
Good luck. Pete

Hello Pete, thanks for the update. I am wondering if there is a chance of obtaining a copy of the IS29D2 Service Bulletin that you received from the Romanian Aeroclub for our review and presentation to Transport Canada in defense of a privately owned IS29D2 that has now been grounded. Thanks, Mike

Job DONE

My IS 28B2 sn 229 flyes again.

Cost:
500 euro - the pice of paper that is S/N specific
640 euro - structure and corrosion control.

Please be advised that at the joint of the vertical stabilizer many IS 28B2 gliders were found to have a crack after 35 years of service. Inspection and action is to be taken for obvious safety reasons.

Mine was exported in Hungary and there there was a program to reinforce that specific joint on all Hungarian IS 28B2 imported so all is ok, but the ones that were not reinforced need to be inspected.

Living in Romania I performed the initial mandatory 2 year inspection with the Romanina Airclub and got a clean bill of health.

Now I can fly it again safely and legally.

Do you have an amendment number or "more text" about the reinforcement of the joint?
