Another concern regards whether the deturbulator tape modification will affect the payout of insurance claims.
Check with your insurer if you have a question.
In the UK, Tony Lintott (Standard Libelle H201B, G-DCYG) has reported that this is not a problem with his insurer.
He received the following reply to his query:
"...confirm underwriters have no problem with (Deturbulators) and there are no implications to your insurance as a result."
He added that "Whilst I don't have it in writing, the UK Underwriter is likely to have taken a view from within the
UK aircraft insurance industry, so the above statement is likely to relate to the UK as a whole, not just our glider.
In any case this will assist participating UK pilots, with the caveat that to be sure, they should ask their insurer,
citing our agent's finding."
