3.5 Equipment list

This equipment list gives an approximate description of the BREEZER
aircraft

Design: Puselage
1he consLrucLion of Lhe load-bearing sLrucLure of Lhe fuselage is a convenLional
aluminium sLressed-skin design. L-shaped profiles are used as sLringers as re-
enforcemenL. 1he spars and ribs of Lhe verLical Lail form parL of Lhe fuselage
sLrucLure, Lhe skin of Lhe compleLely symmeLrical verLical Lail is formed by Lhe
glass-fibre panel which is a parL of Lhe fairing of Lhe upper side of Lhe fuselage.
1he upper side of Lhe fuselage fairing serves solely Lo shape Lhe sLrucLure. 1he
fuselage ends aL Lhe engine comparLmenL side aL a sLainless sLeel sheeL
(firewall). 1he engine is aLLached Lo Lhe firewall via engines mounLs made of
welded sLeel Lubing. A Lwo-piece, carbon-fibre cowling covers Lhe engine
comparLmenL.
CockpiL
1he cockpiL has Lwo side-by-side seaLs. 1o faciliLaLe boarding, parL of Lhe Lwo-
piece plexiglas canopy can be pushed back.
Wings
1he recLangular wing is of a convenLional design and comprises:
· main spar
· auxiliary spar
· ribs
· skin
1he fiLLings for Lhe flaps and Lhe ailerons are mounLed on Lhe auxiliary spar. Por
sLrengLh and weighL reasons, Lhe skin varies in Lhickness. Glass-fibre wing Lips
are aLLached Lo Lhe wing ends.
Lmpennage
As in Lhe case of Lhe wings, Lhe compleLely symmeLrical horizonLal Lail
comprises a main spar, an auxiliary spar, ribs, skin and glass-fibre surface Lips.
ConLrol surfaces, flaps
All conLrol surfaces and flaps are of Lhe same design and comprise a main spar,
ribs and skin.
PlighL conLrols
1he elevaLor and ailerons are operaLed by push rods whereas Lhe rudder is
operaLed convenLionally via conLrol cables. 1he nose wheel is also operaLed via
push rods which are aLLached Lo Lhe rudder pedals. LlevaLor forces can be
balanced by means of a Lrim Lab on Lhe elevaLor. 1he flaps are exLended
mechanically.
1rim
An elecLric piLch Lrim sysLem is conLrolled by swiLches on Lhe conLrol sLicks.
Pressing Lhe fronL swiLch lifLs Lhe Lrailing edge of Lhe Lrim Lab and resulLs in a
piLch down Lrim, pressing Lhe rear swiLch lowers Lhe Lrim Lab and resulLs in a
piLch up Lrim. A panel-mounLed meLer indicaLes Lrim posiLion.
Plaps
1he flap lever is locaLed in Lhe middle console beLween Lhe seaLs. |L is operaLed
in Lhe same way as a hand brake lever. 1he flaps can be exLended Lo Lhree
posiLions: 15º, 25º and 45º. 1he locking-in of Lhe flap lever can be heard as well
as felL. Should an inexperienced piloL noL be able Lo deLermine Lo whaL posiLion
he has exLended Lhe flaps, he can check Lhe posiLion by looking ouL of Lhe
cockpiL window and looking aL Lhe flaps.
An elecLrical flap exLension mechanism is an opLion. |L is operaLed by a rocker-

BREEZER Maintenance Manual Page 17 of 48 Issue 1

*When checking the oil level it is necessary to pump the oil back into the reservoir to
obtain a correct reading and to avoid overfilling. This can be done by removing the
oil filler cap and ensuring the master switch and magnetos are off and rotating the
propeller ONLY in the operating direction until a gurgling sound is heard from the
reservoir tank.

**
With composite propellers, minor damage to the external surface, such as a deep
scratch which breaches the outside fabric, can result in significant loss of strength and
a dangerous condition. For this reason it is important to inspect the blades carefully
before flight. Look particularly for scratches along the chord of the blade which may
have severed one or more yarns of fibre. When in doubt, seek expert advice.
• Neuform propellers must be returned to Neuform in Germany for an inspection
every 500 hours or 2 years whichever comes first. Please refer to your propeller
operating manual.

Note

The following points should be checked once a day, before beginning flight operations, in
addition to the steps listed under 7.

6 LANDING GEAR

The Breezer is equipped with a fixed tricycle undercarriage.

Main landing gear:
Each leg of the main landing gear is made of glass fibre. Each is fixed with five bolts at the
fuselage.

Nose landing gear:
The steerable nose landing gear is part of the engine mount.
Shock pads are used for shock absorbing























BREEZER Maintenance Manual Page 21 of 48 Issue 1
7 Brake system


The main landing gear wheels are provided with hydraulic disc-type brakes actuated by a
handlever which is installed between the seats.
Optionally both sticks are provided with a handlever.

For parking, a locking lever must be actuated which is positioned at the handlever.




General maintenance to ensure good brake performance

- Jack up each main wheel and spin the wheel checking the brake disc runs
centrally between the brake pads. If the brake disc runs biased over to one side
then when the brakes are applied, contact performance with the two pads will
be lost and the brakes become less efficient. To centralise the brake disc loosen
the brake caliper bolts and insert shims between the caliper and the mounting
bracket until the brake disc is centralised.

- If operating from a hard runway it is inevitable that the brakes will be worked
much harder than if operating from a grass runway. When taxying avoid
BREEZER Maintenance Manual Page 22 of 48 Issue 1
constantly holding pressure on the brake lever, this accelerates brake pad wear.
Apply the brakes periodically , say every 5 seconds instead.

- The engine idle speed must not be higher than 1750 rpm. To avoid a continual fast
taxy situation experiment lowering the idle speed to about 1600 rpm. This will
remove the need to constantly apply the brakes when taxying.

- The brake pads do not have a very thick lining even from new so do not be
fooled into thinking a set of part worn pads are ready for replacement.

- Keeping the brake lever pressure quite high ensures good brake performance.
The adjustment plunger on top of the brake fluid cylinder needs to be screwed
down periodically to maintain the pressure in the system.

- As the brakes slowly wear and the adjustment plunger is screwed down to it’s
lowest point it becomes necessary to top up the brake fluid level.


Replenishing the brake fluid

Remove the clevis pin and the brake lever.
Using some thin nose pliers remove the small aluminium cup and then very carefully
(try using 2 x pairs thin nose pliers) lift out the grey seal. This is quite brittle so take care.
Then obtain a small syringe or pipette and drop a small amount of LHM or Dexron
hydraulic fluid to raise the fluid level.
It is essential to use the correct fluid. Use LHM hydraulic fluid commonly used in
Citroen vehicles. This can be substituted for Dexron automatic transmission fluid.
Re-fit the grey seal and the aluminium cup.
Before re-fitting the brake lever use a small allen key to wind out the adjusting plunger
a few turns.
Re-fit the brake lever and clevis pin ensuring to re-adjust the allen key for the plunger.


Replacing the brake pads

Remove each wheel fairing and chock the wheels.
Ensure the parking brake is off and using an allen key unwind the adjusting plunger a
few turns.
Remove the 6mm caliper bolts. Be careful to note the position of any shims fitted.
Lift off the caliper being careful not to kink or distort the brake fluid line.
Remove the split pin and lift out each brake pad. Using a small piece of wood push or
gently lever back the caliper pistons.
Re-fit the new pads making sure to also fit the new split pin.
Re- fit the calliper over the disc and onto the mounting bracket. Secure the caliper
bolts making certain to re-fit any shims fitted.
Re-fit the wheel fairings.
Operate the brake lever to seat the new pads in the calipers and adjust the plunger
to acquire the necessary friction.

10.2 Fuel system
The aluminium fuel tank is located in front of the instrument-panel. It is connected by a line to
a 2-way valve whose positions are: “ On, Off”
The valve is installed in the center pedestal. From the valve, the fuel is fed by a pipe to the
electric booster pump (optionally). A green warning light indicates to the pilot, that the booster
pump is in operation.
From the booster pump, fuel is forced through a filter to the engine-driven pump. From the
engine-driven pump the fuel is fed by a pipe to a T-fuel line splitter and from there to the
carburetors.
The tank is provided with a filler neck, which is located in front of the windshield. A drain valve
is located on the underside of the fuselage in the section of the left footstep.
A little tube is used as fuel indicator. It is located in the middle section of the instrument panel.
Optionally a fuel level gauge, located on the left side of the instrument panel, is used.


10.3 Fuel Flow Test

Mechanical Engine Pump

With engine running and with any back up pump turned off, bleed off fuel between
pump and carbs, restricting bleed off to maintain minimum 2.15 psi. Measure bleed
off at full throttle. This bleed off must be at least 25% of full throttle fuel consumption.

Back up Electric Pump

With engine stopped, run back up electric pump. Bleed off fuel as before maintaining
a minimum pressure of 2.15 psi.

Measure both bleed off amounts.

Full throttle fuel consumption for the 912 UL (80hp model) is 5.9 US Gallons/hr and 7.2
US Gallons/hr for the 912 ULS (100hp model).



BREEZER Maintenance Manual Page 34 of 48 Issue 1

11 PROPELLERS

The BREEZER can be supplied with different propellers :-


For approved propeller types you must consult the POH relevant to aircraft model.


All approved types have blades with ground-adjustable pitch and are set to the pitch
angles given in the relevant POH. This pitch angle is prescribed at a specific radius
from the point at which the blade exits from the hub.
The propellers have aluminium alloy hubs machined to close tolerances. This permits
secure clamping of the blade roots under the high centrifugal forces experienced by
the blades in service. Proper blade root securing bolt tension is essential to maintain
this security.


Maintenance of the propeller is in accordance with the Inspection schedule in
Section 1 – Inspections.

Any defects must be reported to the Manufacturer via Defect and Fault Reporting
Form included in this manual.

All defective propeller components must be replaced with new parts obtained only
from the manufacturer.

With composite propellers, minor damage to the external surface, such as a deep
scratch which breaches the outside fabric, can result in significant loss of strength and
a dangerous condition. For this reason it is important to inspect the blades carefully
before flight. Look particularly for scratches along the chord of the blade which may
have severed one or more yarns of fibre. When in doubt, seek expert advice.


• Neuform propellers must be returned to Neuform in Germany for an inspection
every 500 hours or 2 years whichever comes first. Please refer to your propeller
operating manual.


Slight adjustment to the pitch of each of the above propellers may be necessary to
obtain the correct ground static rpm. An optical tachometer on the propeller is the
preferred method of measuring the engine speed.



Any defects must be reported to the Manufacturer via Defect and Fault Reporting
Form included in this manual.



Please see the technical data sheet section of the POH for further information.

16 JACKING THE AIRCRAFT

Either of the main wheels can be brought clear of the ground by one person lifting the wing
at the points shown below (At the main spar) The aircraft can then be chocked by placing a
wooden block under the bottom part of the stub axle.

The nose wheel is easily lifted by applying a load to the rear fuselage, just forward of the tail.
Where one person only is available, place weights on the tail, suitably padded to prevent
damage, until the nose wheel becomes light. Place a piece of timber under the tail skid,
then push the tail down on to it. Add further weights to the tail to stabilise the aircraft in this
attitude.

17 Cleaning

Maintenance of the wing and empennage is in accordance with the Inspection schedule in Section 1 –
Inspections.

Any defects must be reported to the Manufacturer via Defect and Fault Reporting Form included in
this manual.



Cleaning

The aircraft should be cleaned at the end of each day of flight. Insects and light dirt are best removed
using clear water, for more persistent dirt a mild detergent may be added to the water.
Depending upon type of operation and weather conditions the painted surfaces should be polished
and waxed at least once a year.
One should avoid parking the aeroplane for longer periods in the bright sunlight or in rain; if
necessary, use a tarpaulin to protect the aircraft from the weather.

Avoid the use of a pressure washer or garden hose as this can introduce water into places it shouldn’t
go, (engine, fuel tank, pitot head, pilot’s seat).
