Airworthiness Directive 2012-22-01


Ladies and Gentlemen, the FAA has issued AD 2012-22-01 (attached) that may affect our Cessna 172R and 172S model aircraft. The AD will apply if any of these models have Cessna Service Bulletin SB04-28-03 Engine  Fuel  Return Modification Kit (MK172-28-01) dated 30 August 2004 installed. SB04-28-03 is  a optional service bulletin and NHQ/LGM is not certain all  our  172R or S model aircraft had the mod kit installed. Therefore, please insure the records of each R and S model 172 are inspected for compliance with SB04-28-03 and if applicable have AD 2012-22-01 complied with.  The AD has to be complied with at whichever of the following occurs later:  Next annual inspection after December 28, 2012 or next 100hr inspection after December 28, 2012 or within the next 12 months after December 28, 2012. We also suggest the AD be annotated as non applicable in those aircraft without mod kit MK172-28-01 installed. Please provide  NHQ/LGM the status of each aircraft after its inspection. Thanks and please call if you have any questions.
