FAA Bulletion on Flight Control Cable Inspections for Popular Piper Aircraft Models

This Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin (SAIB) alerts you, owners or operators of Piper Aircraft Inc. (Piper) airplane models (see list of models below), about a potential airworthiness concern regarding failure of the aileron control cables and consequent loss of aileron control authority. This failure is due to a manufacturing flaw in the pulley, which causes the aileron control cables to be severed at the pulley location.
