172N 10,000 hours

<HTML>Hi,

My F172N,1979 Reims build with O-320-H2AD, will have 10,000 hours next week at the annual. Any suggestions on special areas to look at in addition to routine items of the standard checklist/manual?

Re: 172N 10,000 hours

<HTML>I suggest that the wing attach bolts and wing-spar attach blocks be examined for corrosion, and that rear bulkheads be looked at for cracks where the stabilizers/empennage attaches.  All the cables should be examined full-length, and pulleys and pulley-brackets/bearings should be looked at.  Also the landing gear-legs (tubes) and gearbox should be inspected closely.  Corrosion above the cabin headliner is common on aircraft not hangared.</HTML>

<HTML>Thanks George. Another pilot mentioned a 'Continued Airworthiness Program' of the Cessna company - should be a manual then, I guess?

<HTML>Yes.  Cessna developed a program for older aircraft that includes an increased schedule for continued airworthiness that your convenient Cessna Service Center should be able to provide you guidance with.  -George</HTML>
