Service Bulletins

Service Bulletins cover special maintenance, inspection requirements or modifications that owners/operators and maintenance authority holders need to carry out.

Service bulletins may be upgraded to the status of an Airworthiness Directive by CASA or other airworthiness organisations and where issues by Kavanagh Balloons will be approved by CASA.

Normally, if your equipment is affected by a service bulletin, you will be contacted by Kavanagh Balloons or your local Airworthiness Authority where an AD is raised. Our technical staff are available to assist with any questions you may have.

Where the Service Bulletin Status is given as ‘Complete’, no action is required.

Documents in PDF format will require the free Adobe Acrobat Reader (version 5 or greater)

Mailing List

Kavanagh Balloons have set up a mailing list specifically for advising interested parties about the update or addition of technical documents. Go to the Info section of this web site to join up.
