Die Anfrage war erfolgreich.

Dr. Michael A Naylor

Dear European Aviation Safety Agency,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

all reports, including safty assessments, incident or accident reports, correspondence and the final approval docuemnet relating to

..... A new Nose Landing Gear assembly Dwg. No. SG0300N which was approved by EASA as a Minor Change Approval 10048185, dated 18 February 2014.

I am requesting this information to understand what factors prompted the manufacturer (i.e. Czech Sport Aircraft) to design this new asssembly, and why EASA felt it necessary to approve the same.

Yours faithfully,

Dr. Michael A Naylor

Dear Carola BRANDKAMP ,

Thank you for the documents provided. I am partly satisfied with the information received. However I would like to make contact with the EASA project certification manager whose name has been redacted, for the following reasons:
• CSA and ESA recognised that there is an issue with fatigue cracking of the nose leg and that it has caused incidents involving damage
• EASA did not take adequate action to ensure owners were aware of this – they allowed CSA to issue an optional SB, rather than an airworthiness directive
• The EASA project manager appears to be unaware (in his meeting with CSA in Sept 2014) that since CSA issued the mentioned SB in July, they have failed to manufacture and make available the new SG0300N style nose legs, and indeed at the time of writing, they are still not available.

This renders the SB totally ineffective and leads me to believe that EASA and CSA have been negligent.
Yours sincerely
Dr. M.A. Naylor

Dear Dr. Naylor,

we refer to your email of 03 November 2014, where you ask to be put in contact with the EASA project certification manager indicated in the document that were sent to you.

The PCM for PS-28 Cruiser/SportCruiser is Mr. Michal STEPAN, you can contact him directly by email at [email address].
Mr. Stepan is the person who is in the contact with Czech Sport Aircraft (CSA) in all matters regarding mentioned type of aircraft and who would be in a position to provide you
with the necessary information so we would ask you to contact him directly on this issue.

With best regards,

Carola Brandkamp
