Cessna: 172B; Broken Control Yoke; ATA 2701

A mechanic writes, “Upon flaring (this aircraft) during landing—and at normal weights—the control yoke broke at the outside left radius. This caused the nose wheel of the aircraft to drop at a greater speed....” (Yes...that makes sense—especially since we small-airplane-types land with only one hand...the one holding the broken piece...so much for elevator authority!) However “...part of the yoke was still attached to the assembly, so aileron control was maintained.” (Sounds more like '...there was no crosswind'--making aileron control moot. It’s hard to picture the control column snapping forward and the pilot’s left arm still in the flare position with a piece of the yoke in hand—and with quasi-connecting pieces of plastic maintaining roll authority! P/N provided for the yoke: 0513166-3. At least one additional such breakage can be found in the SDRS data base.)

Part Total Time: (unknown).
