Cessna: 185E; Broken Main Gear Strut; ATA 3213

This air taxi operator writes “The gear (strut: P/N 074-1001-7) broke on landing rollout. (These struts have...) an estimated 700 hours on 3600 Fluidine Skis and an estimated 7,000 hours on GAR Aero wheel adapters with 8.50 x 10 inch tires. It is recommended (there be more frequent and/or appropriate) inspections or life-limitations (placed on parts). (A hand drawing indicates the break was complete, occurring at the bottom of the L/H strut—at the top mount holes. The provided part number included a question mark.)

Part Total Time: (estimated) 9,900 hours.
