In light of a number of events and programs being curtailed due to the long-term government shutdown, it should come to no surprise that the stalemate is affecting the aviation community in a number of ways.

Piper Responds To Proposed AD On Multiple Models

Stems From A Fatigue Crack Found In The Lower Main Wing Spar Cap On A Piper Model PA-28R-201

The FAA last month proposed an AD for multiple Piper models after receiving a report of a fatigue crack found in the lower main wing spar cap on a Piper Model PA-28R-201 airplane. An investigation revealed that repeated high-load operating conditions accelerated the fatigue crack growth in the lower main wing spar cap. In addition, because of the structural configuration of the wing assembly, the cracked area was inaccessible for a visual inspection. Model PA-28-140, PA-28-150, PA-28-151, PA-28-160, PA-28-161, PA-28-180, PA-28-181, PA-28-235, PA-28R-180, PA-28R-200, PA-28R-201T, PA-28RT-201, PA-28RT-201T, PA-32-260, and PA-32-300 airplanes have similar wing spar structures as the Model PA-28R-201.
