I can confirm that CASA will not make you do the SID's inspection.

What they have done, back in September, is mandated that you have to maintain your aircraft to the the country of origin, read USA & FAA, with respect to AD's and mandatory service bulletins etc.

SIDS has been in place for any Cessna conducting any low level work. I guess the issue will be if they find corrosion and what it will cost to fix.

Can't imagine they will find many with the wings about to rot off.

When they mandate the 100 and 200 series then you will see GA hit hard I am sure Wiz of Oz is right .

Even private 310's are affected by SIDS True, IF it becomes mandated for all legacy struted Cessnas.

Well, yes, 60 grand a pop, only two jigs in Sydney, extensive new requirements possibly affecting the backbone of the GA industry, its quite possible to see some of the LAME fraternity being more than happy to support that.

Gentlemen, This subject is a little touchy and has been done to death in previous posts.

As for insurance companies not covering non SIDS compliant aircraft, well maybe, they wont cover anything they don't have to, but in terms of aircraft falling out of the sky, they have much bigger risks than that to worry about.

There are at least two sets of jigs in Sydney Australia to re-build the wings, which is what we are talking about. From personal experience I would say ,000 covers cost of rebuilding the two wings to an as new or better than new if you corrosion paint everything before re-assembly.

It is not possible (again, based on experience here in Australia) to determine the extent of the corrosion, without tearing the main spar down, , ahead of the fuel tanks.

Don't depend on "advice" from CASA, that will be of little help in court.

If you are a LAME, make certain your Hangar Keepers and Professional Indemnity insurance states, in writing, that you and your business and employees are covered, if you sign a MR for an aircraft where the SID has not been done, "because it's only used for private operations". Looking on the CASA database there is only 44 x 337/336 aircraft in aus , so its not really an issue .

Must say though it would be interesting to know why Cessna went for the 336/7 and not the unstruted 210/177 first off.
