Elevator Safety Kit
Over time, the elevator cable housing can seperate from the
furrule. A safety kit was issued by TEAM Aircraft in 1995
consisting of clear poly-vinyl tubing and hose clamps to ensure
the housing can't pull away from the furrule. All elevator cables
from TEAM were later supplied with this kit.
Be certain your Cable has the Safety Kit installed at each end
and make it a part of every pre-flight inspection.

The original windscreen has been changed to the over-wing style as
on the Tandem model. This style has shown to provide less drag. If
you contact us for the paper windscreen template, we will supply the
over-wing style as shown
The Air-Bike has such a narrow overhead structure the anti-sway wires were
critical in the design. The wires run from front strut attach block back to the mid
fuselage. The wires ensure that the tail follows the nose without puitting undue
strain in the structure. The wires will slacvk over time and if allowed to remain
slack while flying can cause the overhead welds to fracture. It only takes 30
minutesto make a new pair every few years or use turnbuckles on each wire to
maintain proper tension.
