These FAA-PMA replacement seat parts were developed to assist in complying with parts replacement requirements of A.D. 2011-10-09. This A.D. requires the periodic inspection and replacement of the seat components of the entire Cessna light aircraft fleet. These parts are direct replacements for the wear-related seat components.
All rollers are fully machined from extruded stock for a finer surface finish and higher strength. The bushings are machined from alloy steel for longer life and greater wear resistance. The wear washers are made from a super tough acetyl plastic and have far better wear properties and resistance to aging.
The seat related replacement parts are not serial number specific as the type of seat installed in the aircraft was optional when the aircraft was ordered from the factory. A common seat configuration is the pilot seat being "articulating" or "infinitely adjustable" while the co-pilot seat is the "standard" or "vertically adjustable style".
Seat Kit 1:
This kit is used with the infinitely adjustable or articulating seats installed in the Cessna single engine aircraft from 1963 through 1986. Two adjustment crank handles identify this seat. The backrest angle is adjusted with a crank. It is also used with some 336-337 series aircraft. The SEAT-KT-1 contains the same components as four of the Cessna 1714000K200 kits.
All seats in the 177 Cardinal will use the large seat roller and require this kit. These parts are not used on models 150-152.
Seat Kit 2:
This kit is used with the Standard or Vertically adjustable seat installed in Cessna single engine aircraft from 1963 through 1986. This seat is identified by one or no adjustment crank handles. The seat back angle is adjusted with a lever on the side of the seat back. It is also used with some 336-337 series aircraft. The SEAT-KT-2 contains the same components as four of the Cessna 1414100-212 kits.
These parts are not used on models 150-152.
Seat Kit 3: This kit is used with all seats in the Cessna 150-152 series aircraft, and all Cessna single engine aircraft built before 1963. A welded steel tubing seat frame easily identifies these seats. It is also used with some Cessna twin engine aircraft.
