Piper Service Bulletin Affects Retractable-Gear Aircraft

The New Piper Aircraft has issued a service bulletin for the repetitive inspection of the wing rib assembly in the wheel well area to detect the presence of cracking. The bulletin, issued earlier this month, affects about 14,000 aircraft, including several retractable-gear Piper models like the Arrow, Turbo Arrow, Lance, Turbo Lance, Saratoga, Turbo Saratoga, Seneca, and Seminole. If cracks are detected and need repair, the kits are estimated to cost $300 per side, with labor estimated at 10 to 12 hours per side.
