"This time, the FAA got it right. They held a true dialog and
listened to the people who know the aircraft best. Now they are
choosing to work with the owners to find alternate solutions to
what they determined was an unsafe condition."

Regulatory Policy Luis Gutierrez, reacting to news that the FAA has
abandoned an attempt to create an AD covering Cessna 400 series
aircraft. The proposed rulemaking (NPRM) would have ADs that would
have grounded most models in the 400 series while they underwent
inspection and installation of a wing spar strap kit at an
estimated cost of $75,000 per aircraft.
