Cessna: 172N; Nonconforming Leading Edge Skin

Cessna: 172N; Nonconforming Leading Edge Skin

<p><strong><font color = "blue">Cessna: 172N; Nonconforming Leading Edge Skin; ATA 5730</font></strong></p>
<p>A Designated Airworthiness Representative (DAR) for an aircraft repair station submitted this defect report.</p>
<p>“During a receiving inspection of a new, Cessna R/H, O/B, L/E skin it was found to have been drilled-up incorrectly. None of the nose ribs would line up, and this setup would have left insufficient edge distance on the lower, main wing spar rivet line. This <em>(is) </em>the second time we have received this same part <em>(P/N 0523029-4 </em>). We have asked for this part not to be put back into Cessna stock since the part is non-conforming. <em>(It should be noted...) </em>this part came with an FAA Form 8130-3 Airworthiness Approval Tag. <em>(I) </em>recommend Cessna perform <em>(more thorough) </em>conformity inspections of <em>(their) </em>parts.”</p>
