There have been two incidents of broken lines (main lines) on Bi-Golden. In both cases the gliders were used a lot and aerobatics manoeuvres were often flown.
Fortunately both incidents led to no injury of the pilots or passengers.
Bi-Golden is not intended for aerobatics.
GRADIENT decided anyhow in accordance with the DHV to change to stronger main lines.
All Bi-Golden should be equipped with these stronger main lines at the next two-years-check.
Turnpoint replaces the main lines on demand also before the next two-year-check.
Experienced pilots can replace the main lines also by themselves.
The replacement of the main lines is without charge.
