Owners of Stemme S10 and S10-V sailplanes have to modify the engine compartment fuel and oil system and firewall to prevent the spread of an engine fire.

NPRMs have been issued recommending that Sky Arrow 650TC and 650TCN aircraft owners be ordered to modify nose gear support bulkheads and inspect for engine mount cracks.
