Piper AD 20-24-05 Wing Spar Corrosion

Just in case you missed it, we want you to know about Piper AD 20-24-05 Wing Spar Corrosion.

The AD effects these 7 models:

        • PA-28-140
        • PA-28-150
        • PA-28-160
        • PA-28-180
        • PA-28-235
        • PA-32-260
        • PA-32-300

It is Recurring, and is effective Dec 28, 2020.

The unsafe condition is listed as:

“This AD was prompted by reports of corrosion found in an area of the main wing spar not easily accessible for inspection. The FAA is issuing this AD to detect and correct corrosion in the wing root area of the left and the right main wing spars. Corrosion of the main wing spar, if not detected and corrected, could cause the main wing spar to fail with consequent loss of control of the airplane.”

If you feel this AD affects your work, please LOGIN to the AD Toolbox and view the AD here:

https://www.airworthinessdirectives.com/Members/AD/ViewAD/20-24-05

There is a Piper Service Bulletin referenced in the AD;Β  Piper SB 1304A:

Here is the link for a different Piper AD, also relating to Wing Spar, but with entirely different models (PA-28-151, PA-28-161, PA-28-181, PA-28-235, PA-28R-180, PA-28R-200, PA-28R-201, PA-28R-201T, PA-28RT-201, PA-28RT-201T, PA-32-260, PA-32-300, PA-32R-300, PA-32RT-300, PA-32RT-300T):

Converting, Importing, Transferring External Documents

Customers often ask: “Can you import my Reports from XYZ into your system?”

Whatever you prefer to call it:Β  “converting, transferring, or importing”, we do NOT currently offer that service, however, there is a work around, IF you still have the digital versions of your external documents.

What’s the work around?Β  Have you ever used the Copy & Paste functions on your keyboard?Β  If so, this should be fairly simple for you.

If you still have access to the digital version of your external documents, open TWO Windows:

      1. The AD Toolbox, and
      2. Your external documents, whether it be via browser, or opening a PDF, Word or Excel window.

Create a New document within the AD Toolbox (can be a Logbook Entry, AD Report, Weight & Balance Form, etc).

Copy the data from the external document, and Paste it into the correct field in your new AD Toolbox document.

If you don’t know how to Copy & Paste, here’s a quick intro, using keyboard functions:

On a PC:

Copy is:Β  CTRL C

Paste is:Β  CTRL V

See the source image

On a Mac:

Copy is:Β  Command C

Paste is:Β  Command V

 

Give this a try and let us know how it’s worked for you.Β  Copy & paste is a great tool, no matter what you might be working on.Β  We hope this helps get your external records moved over.
