The Light Aircraft Company Ltd has a new EASA Supplemental Type Certificate for Schleicher Gliders that will reduce the costs and speed up recovering Oratex materials.

STC 10061236 confirms that Oratex UL600 Mk3 may be used for covering Schleicher KA6, K7, Ka8, K10a, AS-K13 and ASK18 series gliders, and that there is no longer any need for rib stitching when the aircraft is covered in accordance with the Oratex Covering manual Doc No. ADxC-51-001-AMM Edition 6 or later.

Paul Hendry-Smith Managing Director of TLAC said, “The Oratex factory has very clear objectives for the future development of this advanced aircraft covering system — this is a significant step in reducing costs and reducing aircraft downtime for owners, operators and clubs.”

TLAC runs aircraft covering training courses at its Little Snoring facility.
