FAA Issues Revised AD for Cessna Seat Rails

Amending an earlier Airworthiness Directive (AD) on seat rail slippage issues for select Cessna series airplanes, AD 2011-10-09 clarifies and adds new steps to the existing inspection procedures. The additional steps involve inspections of the tang thickness and length on the seat roller housing. The AD also includes improved graphics for inspecting seat track hole wear and for inspecting proper seat lock pin engagement depth. The steps are itemized, in sequence, to provide clearer guidance for anyone performing the inspections. The AD becomes effective June 17, 2011, and can be viewed  in the FAA Regulatory and Guidance Library
