£105 standard wing
£85 mini wing
£125 tandem wing
The Standard service includes all the checks of the full trim service except for the line measure:
Measurements are taken in 3 places on the top surface, 10 – 20cm in from the leading edge using a JDC porosimeter. If readings are low or inconsistent, further readings are taken.
Line Strength Check
Main and mid centre A/C lines are checked, further lines will be checked if results are poor, lines worn or old. The amount of tests depends on the age of the wing and the line material, we have the experience to know what tests are required. We have our custom-built test rig, actuator driven and a calibrated load cell giving highly accurate readings. Replaced lines are £12.50 each.
Cloth Tear Strength
The tear strength of the cloth is checked using a Bettsometer, the industry standard for this application.
Visual line Inspection
All lines are visually checked for damage to the sheathing, wear around maillons, kinks, pulled weave and worn/damaged stitching. Any damaged lines will be replaced. If it’s many lines we will contact you with a quote.
Replacement lines – £12.50 each.
Visual Cloth inspection
The top and bottom surfaces are checked over our purpose-built lightbox, this shows up any tears, holes, wear, damage to the fabric and other issues. Any small holes will be patched, if there are a lot then there will be an extra cost. If large tears or damage are found we will quote you for the repairs. Also checked are seams, line tabs. The wing is then hung up by the trailing edge to check internal ribs, cross bracing, reinforcing and battens, any debris, sand, stones etc are removed.
Webbing, stitching, metalwork, pulleys, line tidies are checked for wear and damage, pulleys lubricated if required.
Main brake length check and adjustment
Main brake lines checked against manufacturers settings and reset if required. If the wing has had a previous line measure the lines are not reset.
Risers attached from one point and symmetry checked from the underside of the wing. If not consistent we will recommend a full line measure.
If at any part of the service the wing is found to be in poor condition, we will contact you before carrying on.
