That is all.

And that is all that should be needed to move with alacrity to ensure the inspection is done ASAP.

Forgive my possible ignorance, but does this affect all C210 models or just the ones without struts..?

Hi Squawk,
I'm not familiar with 210's but am familiar with mag survey and had a quick chat with a LAME that serviced survey 210's and he was a bit alarmed a where it failed,
not the usual place that developed cracks?

A sobering read from a CASA AWB I received today - a small corrosion pit and rapid crack growth - just what no-one wants to see.

A number of 210's have been inspected I.A.W the new Cessna Service Letter, most have passed.

But if they do not it is a very big item,with the usual extra things it will be very close to a $200K job to replace - from what I hear.

That said it is great to see owners and operators doing this SL voluntarily.

Seems awfully high - What 'facts' give you that number, or is it some bloke at a hotel bar talking bull:confused:

Labour estimate:
1. Remove and replace wings
2. Dismantling and replacement of the affected roof and centre section(s)

Even if that took 200 hours, total labour is about $27,000. Would parts for this really be costed out at $173,000?

Anyone else care to chime in with some numbers?

Price a replacement carry through structure and you will have your answer. If you can get one.
The inspection and preparation itself only took about 2-3 days for our 210.

Pretty much on the money.

But take out a few bucks to build a fuse jig, if you do not have one.
