FAA Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin CE-10-08
Excerpt from the document:
This Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin informs you of an airworthiness concern on all variants of Zodiac CH601XL and CH650 airplanes, all serial numbers, including special light-sport category aircraft (S-LSA), experimental light-sport aircraft (E-LSA), and experimental amateur-built aircraft.
Since April 2009, the FAA has been conducting a special review of the Zodiac CH601XL and the nearly identical CH650 to evaluate design and operational details of these aircraft. This review was a continuation of efforts to investigate several in-flight structural failures of the CH601XL dating back to 2005.
