Check your belts

The CAA UK has recently released a ‘Safety Notice’ regarding Seat Belt condition in GA aircraft including Historic and Warbird types. They make note of a Yak52 crash where a life was possibly lost due to deteriated seat belt webbing.

If your black webbing is looking very purple or it looks like a cashmire sweater then they probably need changing. Please get your Maint Org to have a good look at them.
