Cessna; 441; Frayed Elevator Cable; ATA 2720

A mechanic for this air operator describes finding this aircraft’s R/H aft elevator cable (P/N 5815103-6CR) significantly frayed “...through 4 of the 7 strands -- failure was imminent. This cable showed no signs of wear on the previous inspection (500 hours earlier) and it only takes a 20 degree bend at this pulley. It should probably be inspected every 300 hours instead of the factory inspection schedule of 600 hours.

(Fuselage station number is 290. An attached note from the Flight Standards District Office in Wichita, Kansas, further describes the submitter’s speculation: “...the corrosion resistant stainless steel cables seem to be more brittle than the standard steel cables.”)

Part Total Time: 4,000.0 hours.
