The above table may be sent to you. Ask for the file <type_training_eng&cz.PDF>.
Following the factory training of your technician, it is possible to send a Blanik factory technician to your facility (for example, for one month) who would initially work with your technicians and show them the proper techniques. This, however, would not be a substitute for the initial training of your technician at the Blanik factory. The factory would charge for the cost of the factory technician depending on your interest and the duration of his stay at your facility, after a prior agreement.

The cost of material needed for one glider.
The cost of one (1) set   9,852 EUR  (EXW Prague, Czech Republic)

The number of manhours needed to modify one glider.
The basic modification requires up to 200 manhours per glider. However, our experience has been that often other service bulletins need to be performed in addition to the actual modification (if not yet done, for example, the bulletin L13/108a). Also often other needed repairs need to be done, which increases the overall needed amount of labor.

A timetable when the training at the factory could take place.
The earliest available date for training is from the beginning of August 2018.

To help you get an idea of what repair jigs would be needed, we can send you
< AMOC_1.1presentation.PDF>. The AMOC (Alternative Method of Compliance) has been approved by the FAA.

The L-13 Blanik is Type-Certified in most countries of the world.

Construction

FUSELAGE
The fuselage is of semi-monocoque construction with longerons and bulkheads, oval in cross-section. The cockpit is covered with a one-part plexiglass canopy. The rear fuselage is made of two stiffened semi-monocoque structures and reinforcing bulkheads riveted together.

WINGS
The trapezoid-shaped wing with a negative sweep is of all-metal, single-spar construction. Each wing half is connected to the fuselage by means of a vertical main spar pin and a horizontal front spar pin. Flaps and ailerons are of metal structure, fabric-covered. The spoilers extend both above and below the wing, and hook up automatically.

TAIL
The horizontal stabilizers of all-metal construction attach to the fuselage at the base. The elevators area of metal frame covered with fabric, and each has a trim tab. The elevator and tabs hook up automatically upon assembly. The rudder's metal frame is fabric-covered and attaches to the all-metal fin on two mounts.

FLIGHT CONTROLS
The control sticks actuate the elevator and ailerons via a system of levers and rods. The adjustable rudder pedals are connected to the rudder by cables. The elevator is aerodynamically trimmed. A system of levers and torsion rods extends and retracts the spoilers. The L-13 is equipped with a front aerotow hook and side winch/auto tow hooks. A custom, bottom center of gravity tow hook may be built in. Both tow releases are controlled by handles on the instrument panels.

LANDING GEAR
The landing gear consists of a semi-retractable single wheel, equipped with a drum brake, and sprung by a well-proven oleo-pneumatic shock absorber. The front bottom of the fuselage has a protective steel shoe. The reinforced, fully-swiveling, solid rubber tail wheel has a rubber shock absorber. Optionally, a tail skid may be installed. 

COCKPIT
The cockpit can accomodate pilots 5'1" to 6'8" tall. The four-point seat belts protect the pilots along with upholstered seats. Two full sets of instruments may be installed. The variometers are attached to the total energy probe mounted in the front. Fresh air can be let in the cockpit either through the front fuselage vent or through sliding window scoops.


Operation

The L-13 is a very enjoyable glider to fly. The take-off roll is smooth even on rough ground thanks to a very effective shock absorber on the main wheel. On tow, the aircraft is very stable and can be flown hands-off when trimmed with the responsive and easy to adjust elevator trim. The controls are accurately tuned and balanced, and move lightly with little friction. The fore-and-aft stability is excellent with no tendency to over-pitching. The lateral handling is very effective with a roll rate of 4 seconds from 45° to 45° at near the best glide speed. The airbrakes are effective and gradual in application. Side-slipping is excellent.

On the ground the glider is very easily maneuverable thanks to the swivelling tail wheel and optional wing tip wheels. If tail lifting is required to move the tail over especially rough ground, the tail may be handled by inserting a bar just ahead of the vertical fin. The one-piece canopy closes and opens from either seat. 


History

In 2010, the FAA grounded the operation of L-13 Blaniks. In July 2017, the FAA approved the modification to lift the grounding of L-13 Blaniks.
