SERVICE NOTICE: Cessna extends warranty credit for secondary seat stop installation through Dec. 31, 2014

 In news

logo_cessna - CopyCessna has extended the warranty credit for the installation of a secondary seat stop for the pilot seat on all single engine Cessna aircraft through December 31, 2014.

The Secondary Seat Stop is an additional device installed on the pilot or copilot seat that assists in preventing uncommanded rearward movement of the seat. It is designed to assist in providing an additional margin of safety by limiting the aft travel of the seat should the primary seat latch pin(s) not be properly engaged in the seat rail/track. In certain instances, seat slippage could result in some pilots not being able to reach all the controls and/or subsequently losing control of the airplane. The functionality of the Secondary Seat Stop should be completely transparent to the operator. If operation of the seat stop is not transparent the airplane requires maintenance to correct the malfunction of the seat stop mechanism.

Compliance is mandatory for the pilot seat: the secondary seat stop installation shall be accomplished by December 31, 2014. To receive credit, the work must be completed and a Warranty Claim submitted by a Cessna Authorized Service Facility within 30 calendar days of Service Bulletin compliance before the credit expiration date.

NOTE: This Service Bulletin supersedes Service Bulletin SEB89-2: Pilot Seat Secondary Stop Installation (all revisions).
NOTE: Compliance with Revision 5 is not required if in compliance with the Original Issue or Revision 1, Revision 2, Revision 3, or Revision 4.

Domestic:            December 31, 2014

International:    December 31, 2014
