N1292F CESSNA A185F During NOT REPORTED - THE AFT ATTACH POINTS OF THIS 185 HORIZONTAL STABILIZER ARE STRUCTURALLY REINFORCED WITH AN INTERNAL REINFORCEMENT TRIANGLE BRACKET, PN 0732106, AND 0732106-1. CRACKS IN THESE REINFORCEMENTS WERE FOUND AROUND THE WASHERS OF THE ATTACH HARDWARE, AND IN THE RADIUS OF THE ANGLE. IDENTIFICATION OF THIS PROBLEM CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED BY OBSERVING EXCESSIVE FORE AND AFT MOVEMENT OF THE HORIZONTAL STABILIZER WHILE OBSERVING THE REAR ATTACH FITTING. IF THE FITTING SHOWS SIGNS OF GAPBETWEEN THE SKIN AND FITTING WHILE TESTING THE MOVEMENT FORE AND AFT, THIS IS PROBABLE CAUSE FOR FURTHER INVESTIGATION OF THE INTERNAL REINFORCEMENT TRIANGLE BRACKETS. THIS AREA IS MOST EASILY INSPECTED BY REMOVING THE ELEVATORS AND USING 2006-11-21

N1292F CESSNA A185F During INSP/MAINT - WHILE REMOVING THE RIGHT OUTBOARD LANDING GEAR SUPPORT BRACKET, THE RIGHT LOWER LANDING SUPPORT ANGLE WAS FOUND TO BE CRACKED THROUGH 4 RIVET HOLES ALONG THE LOWER ROW WHICH ATTACHES TO THE SUPPORT BRACKET. THIS AREA CANNOT BE SEEN WITHOUTREMOVING THE PORTION OF FLOORBOARD THAT FORMS THE TOP OF THE LANDING GEARBOX. 1991-10-07
N1292F CESSNA A185F During INSP/MAINT - DURING A 100 HOUR INSPECTION, THE RIGHT OUTBOARD LANDING BRACKET WAS FOUND TO BE DELAMINATING ALONG THE TOP PORTION OF THE BRACKET, ABOVE THE FORWARD WEDGE. CLOSER EXAMINATION REVEALED THAT THE TOP OF THE BRACKET WAS CROWNED AND THE INTERGRANULAR CORROSION WAS CAUSING THE EXFOLIATION. 1991-10-07
N1292F CESSNA 185F During INSP/MAINT - DURING ROUTINE OVERHAUL, A .5 INCH CRACK WAS FOUND IN THE CONNECTING ROD BEAM, ON THE SIDE, ABOUT AT THE MIDWAY POINT.CRACK COULD BE SEEN WITH THE NAKED EYE. 1988-08-06
N1292F CESSNA 185F During INSP/MAINT - DURING ROUTINE OVERHAUL, SIGNIFICANT FRETTING AND GALLING WAS FOUND ON THE NR 2 CONNECTING ROD AND INSERT AT THE CRANKSHAFT END. SUBMITTER SUGGEST THE INSERT WOULD PROBABLY HAVE STARTED SPINNING BEFORE MANY MORE OPERATING HOURS, CAUSING PROBABLE ENGINE FAILURE. 1988-06-15

Aviation Datasets Explained


Aircraft Lookup allows anyone to quickly search public datasets published by various aviation administrative services as well as marketplaces and other private aviation data providers in the United States. These datasets provide valuable insight into the history and maintenance record of any aircraft registered in the US. When you provide an N-Number above, we cross reference historical SDR, FAA, and NTSB datasets to identify any relevant records related to that N-Number.

As you may be aware, N-Numbers are not connected to an aircraft for the life of that aircraft - N-Numbers may be deregistered, and re-registered to completely different aircraft. For that reason, please confirm that the details of any search result correspond to the make and model you intended to pull records for.

SDR, FAA, and NTSB databases are provided as follows:

The Service Difficulty Reports (SDR) dataset is defined as "[t]he reports submitted by certificate holders and certificated repair stations, known as service difficulty reports (SDR's), provide the FAA with airworthiness statistical data necessary for planning, directing, controlling, and evaluating certain assigned safety-related programs." This data is, in its raw form, a tab-delimited file with encoded field headers.

The FAA Registration dataset is fairly straightforward - it is a listing of current registrations (along with addresses, aircraft serial number, and other basic metadata) at any point in time. The registration data is a comma delimited file that has named fields at the top of each file. The FAA provides historical data on their site for the previous few years.

The FAA Accident/Incident dataset covers a range of accidents and incidents that may or may not overlap with NTSB data. Typically, more significant crashes are covered by NTSB data while less significant crashes are more comprehensively covered by the FAA Accident/Incident data, which will frequently include minor events like gear-up landings and so forth. The data provided by the FAA is in a tab-delimited file with encoded field headers.

The NTSB investigation dataset is distinct from the FAA dataset. While the number of accidents or incidents they cover are less numerous, the depth at which they are covered is significantly deeper when reported by the NTSB. While each record from the NTSB contains incredible amounts of metadata related to people responsible for the flight, prevailing meteorological conditions at the time of flight, and passengers aboard, this aircraft lookup tool only provides basic summary data. The full dataset is provided as a series of Microsoft access file databases on the NTSB site.
