Adam Posted May 4, 2012 Report Share Posted May 4, 2012 I received the following email from John Gilmore. Looks like CPS may have supplied some substandard fuel hoses in the Rotax 5 year rubber kits. From: John Gilmore [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Friday, May 04, 2012 12:53 PM To: Adam Coffey Subject: Safety Alert regarding CPS fuel hose kits Dear Flight Design CTSW and CT2K owner We received a Service Difficulty Report on Thursday regarding an airworthiness issue with certain fuel line shipped with CPS (California Power Systems) kits for compliance with the Rotax 5 year rubber part replacement requirement. An overnight test done with a sample in auto fuel showed that the suspect fuel line degraded very quickly. As a result we are requesting that any owner that has used a CPS kit to replace their fuel lines do not fly your airplane until we know how to identify the suspect fuel hose. We will follow up with more specific information soon.
