Default SZD-55 Wheel Brake

Can anyone provide any information about the above
- specifically, where to get the brake discs from???

If not, any help related to what the brake discs come
from - any owners out there had to do any work on the
brakes??? Really stuck as all local car/bike/truck
parts shops can't identify the pieces!

Many thanks

The local agent for SZD is Windpath Soaring.

www.windpath.ca

I have an SZD 59 and have been able to obtain all parts without any
problem. In fact, I purchased the disc brake pads from him just six
months ago.

But not so local for people in Kent in the United Kingdom, where the
original poster's signature makes clear he is from.

Is'nt there a SZD agent in the UK? SZD's web site lists an Allstar
Aviation contact in the UK.
