AD on Placards and Markings for Cessna 310, 414, 421 and other 300 and 400 series Aircraft

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive 2014-03-03 (AD) for certain Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models 310, 320, 340, 401, 402, 411, 414, and 421 airplanes. This AD was prompted by an investigation of recent and historical icing-related accidents and incidents for the products listed above. This AD requires either having the supplemental airplane flight manual/airplane flight manual supplement (SAFM/AFMS) inside the airplane and accessible to the pilot during the airplane’s operation or installing a placard that prohibits flight into known icing conditions and installing a placard that increases published airspeed on approach at least 17 mph (15 knots) in case of an inadvertent encounter with icing. They are issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD is effective April 7, 2014. pdf icon 2014-03-03.pdf

Special Bulletin on Landing and Nose Gear For Cessna 310, 414, 421 and other 400 Model Cessna’s

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

This Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin CE-14-11 (SAIB) is to alert owners, operators, and maintenance technicians of Cessna 300 and 400 Models and Series airplanes of an airworthiness concern, specifically the recommendation to inspect the nose landing gear (NLG) trunnion to ensure that cracks are not present. If cracks are present, the trunnion should be replaced because a failure during landing may cause significant damage to the airplane and may cause injury to the occupants. Airplanes affected are all series of Cessna Models 310/335/340/401/402/404/411/414/421/ 425/441 and Reims 406. pdf icon CE-14-11.pdf

Happy Crash if that is possible…everyone survived

Monday, April 14th, 2008

Well it appears that one hard landing caused nothing but damage.  All passengers and people injured on the ground when a Cessna 310 crashed into a house in Compton, CA over the weekend are surviors.  The crash of the plane by the 71 year old pilot appeared to be a result of loss of power.
