February 8, 2018 - The FAA has proposed an airworthiness directive (AD) that would affect certain models of Cessna 172, 182, 206, 207, and 210 airplanes. This AD is in response to reports of cracks found in the lower area of the forward cabin doorpost bulkhead as a result of metal fatigue, and would require repetitive inspections of the lower forward doorpost at the strut attach fitting.

The FAA estimates that 14,653 airplanes will be affected by this proposed AD. Inspections are expected to cost $127.50, with repairs ranging from $2,540 to $2,992.

According to the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), failure to inspect and repair the cracks “could result in failure of the wing strut attach point during operation, which could result in loss of control.”

EAA is evaluating the AD in conjunction with industry partners and will continue to update members.

The FAA is accepting public comment through March 19, 2018. If you wish to submit a comment, you may do so on the NPRM’s online docket.
