SUMMARY: The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Textron Aviation Inc. (Textron) (Type Certificate previously held by Cessna Aircraft Company) Models 210N, 210R, P210N, P210R, T210N, T210R, 177, 177A, 177B,
177RG, and F177RG airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by the in-flight break-up of a Model T210M airplane in Australia, due to fatigue cracking that initiated at a corrosion pit, and subsequent corrosion reports on other Model 210-series and Model 177-series airplanes. This proposed AD would require visual and eddy current inspections of the carry-thru spar lower cap, corrective action if necessary, application of a protective coating and corrosion inhibiting compound (CIC), and reporting the inspection results to the FAA. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Cessna Flyer webinars are offered free to all interested. Topics include maintenance and flying tips to help you get the most from owning and flying your Cessna.

Seminars, Camaraderie, Food, Fun, and a Bus Ride to AirVenture!
For nearly two decades, Cessna Flyer and Piper Flyer Association members have made a pilgrimage to Waupaca, Wisconsin the weekend before EAA AirVenture begins in nearby Oshkosh. They come to gather with fellow members, CFA and PFA staff, and notables from various aviation companies, to share a love of aviation. The weekend includes opportunities to learn more about Cessna and Piper systems and operations. It also includes a good dose of just plain fun, with meals, social time, and a door prize drawing.
Folks who come in for AirVenture are discovering what CFA and PFA members have known for more than a decade: Waupaca is a great place to fly into, and a great place to stay.
