Baldwin City, KS, November 22, 2016 – McFarlane Aviation Products just announced that after five years of FAA certification effort, their replacement Cessna seat roller housings are now FAA-PMA approved and in stock. McFarlane’s sales manager, John Cowan, could hardly contain his excitement, “It is the season to give thanks, and we are definitely thankful this year. Our seat roller housings are now FAAPMA approved and available to ship! It has been a long wait and we thank our customers for their
patience and continued support."
FAA AD 2011-10-09 requires the inspection of Cessna seat roller housings. If a housing does not pass inspection, it is mandatory to replace the housing.
These new replacement housings are precision machined and are improved with perfected dimensions for smooth installation and operation. They also have an anodized finish for better wear and corrosion resistance. Many of the housings are also available as an assembly with the locking pin bracket perinstalled. McFarlane recommends buying the assemblies when available because the rivet spacing on the brackets is very close making them difficult to rivet without special tooling. McFarlane’s efficient production processes lower costs so that they can pass the savings on to their customers.
McFarlane stocks 27 different housing part numbers. When asked about the difficulty in identifying the correct housings for a particular seat, Cowan explained, “Well we initially ran into the same confusion, but cured the confusion by developing a user friendly application flow chart. Extensive research went into developing this chart to ensure that our customers receive the parts that they need. This flow chart along with pictures and key dimensions are available on our website to aid our customers, and will be in
our new catalog this spring.”
