FAA extends comment periods on proposed Cessna ADsFAA extends comment periods on proposed Cessna ADs

In response to requests from AOPA and the Cessna Pilots Association, the FAA recently issued extensions to the comment periods on two proposed airworthiness directives affecting several popular models of Cessna airplanes. Proposed AD 98-CE-57-AD recommends periodic testing and possible replacement of Cessna plastic control wheels. Proposed AD 2000-CE-26-AD recommends repetitive inspection of fuel lines and periodic replacement of map light switch insulators. Both ADs were issued in January with 30-day comment periods. AOPA petitioned the FAA to extend the comment periods so that aircraft type clubs and other affected owners and operators would have adequate time to submit objective comments. Comments are due on the control wheel AD by April 4, and by April 13 for the fuel line/map light AD. For more information, copies of the ADs, and other related documents, see AOPA's "FAA issues AD on Cessna 172 map light and fuel lines" and "FAA opts out of AD—issues SAIB on Cessna plastic control wheels" regulatory briefs.
