And I don't even know th' guy. I recently purchased a Cherokee. All the logs looked good, Files from FAA, showed good. What I saw when I gave it a going over looked good, so I bought it. I now wish I'd made the owner allow me to pull the interrior for my inspection. Or at least the seats. After purchase, I decided to pull the old Bendix ADF. To facillitate that, I pulled the right seat. What I found, scared th' crap outta me. When I went to slide the seat forward and out of the track, I found that it wouldn't slide all the way forward. No worries, probably a carpet string balled up. I slide the seat back, slide my "tongue depressor" along the rail, then remove the seat. Upon further investigation, I found the seat track to be eaten up with severe corrosion. So severe, that I'm afraid that simple replacement of seat track will not be the fix. IOW I'm afraid that I now own wings, tailfeathers, and an engine. How could this have gotten by the past several annual inspections? Now, I'm wondering, what else has not been inspected? I guess I'll find out in the next few weeks. This has got to be one of the worst pencil whipped annual inspections around. In a PA28 the seat tracks are structural, and any sign of corrosion is reason for replacement. This one is so bad that I fear for the skin under it.
