Re: Weight and Balance amendment requirements

The cabin speaker was an option on the Cessnas and was included on the original equipment and weight and balance sheets I tried finding the original equipment weight and balance information for mine but couldn't find it. It's a 1961 150A model, and there was very limited information provided in bot...

Re: Weight and Balance amendment requirements

Yeah I figured. No change to the equipment list as I removed the original Cessna cabin speaker (part of Type Design not listed on the equipment list).

Weight and Balance amendment requirements

I'm trying to clarify whether I need to amend the weight and balance report, after carrying out a mod with negligible effect on W/B. I removed a 0.88lbs weight with change on CG of 0.03% of the envelope, so determined negligible per AC43.13-1B CH 10-1(c). However, CAR Standard 571 Appendix C states:...

Re: Carry-thru spar corrosion

Apologies for the radio silence, I was away for work and just got back home a week ago. Thank you PilotDAR and Dash8-400 for your very informative replies. PilotDAR, to answer your question it's a 1961 150A model. The local AMO inspected and cleaned the corrosion while I was away, and from what I un...

Re: Carry-thru spar corrosion

Ok thats good to know. At least it will be a good peace of mind to have that whole area inspected. It looks like the headliner hasn't been off in decades. I was curious if that insulation was even needed. It was very damp and disgusting in there when I took it out.

Re: Carry-thru spar corrosion

Doesnt look too bad.....see it all the time on older Cessna. It needs to be blended and inspected, but not necessarily a death sentance Fingers crossed. I took the headliner and some interior trim off today so they can inspect the whole carry-thru structure. There was water dripping from the anchor...

Re: Made for repair parts

Out of curiosity what type aircraft is it? Your 150? I have an early 1960's model and you can get pma'd parts for all the fairings. I replaced my dorsal fin a while back with a new fiberglass one. Mine is a 1961. Awesome looked a bit harder and found Kots2U makes it! Also cheaper than the illegal o...

Re: Carry-thru spar corrosion

Find an airframe specializing AMO. There happens to be an AMO at the airpark that rebuilds airframes, so I'll be talking to them next week. you would think that they could have at least put some primer on the structure, geez that looks rough. Also, that white pulley looks to not be in safety. No ki...

Carry-thru spar corrosion

Oh boy. I think I put the first nail on my plane's coffin... Looking to fix a tare in the headliner zipper today, I noticed what looks like pitting corrosion on a section of the rear carry-thru spar. Some of the other parts of the structure and skin don't look good either. I can't believe this was n...

Re: Made for repair parts

Ya it needs drilling and half of it gets pop riveted onto the tail. I didn't know I could train in an OM aircraft! That is good to know thanks. I'll have to discuss that with my instructor.

Re: Made for repair parts

That's what I thought. Haha thanks for the tip! Too bad I don't have a hangar to do it in. Starting to lean towards going owner maintenance on it. I'd probably save more on labour costs then I'd loose on the value of the plane, but couldn't train in it anymore. hmmm

Made for repair parts

I'm looking to replace a cracked plastic fairing on my 60 years old airplane. I found a company in Quebec that makes "non-structural fairings that are no longer readily available", and sells them as "made-for-repair" parts. No cert, SofC, and it's their own P/N. They're not a holder of a PDA or PMA,...

Re: Maintenance requirements for privately operated small aircraft used for training

Thanks PilotDAR, that makes perfect sense. I think I was initially misled by the CAR 101 definition of a Flight Training Service being a commercial service, and then I read too much into the other regs.

Re: Maintenance requirements for privately operated small aircraft used for training

Thank you for the quick reply! That is a big relief indeed. A coworker of mine has also just pointed out Standard 571.05 of CARs which states: "Aeroplanes or helicopters used by approved flight training units (FTUs) are operated pursuant to Part IV of the CARs, while aircraft used commercially are o...

Maintenance requirements for privately operated small aircraft used for training

Good day, Sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum... I'm having a hard time pinning down the exact CAR that specifies what kind of operation I'm running and the associated maintenance requirements. I own a Cessna 150 I purchased for the purpose of facilitating flight training for myself toward a P...
