Interest and annoyance over Cessna’s approach to corrosion inspection grows, with EASA and country NAA’s taking apparently differing stands. One thing is for sure; those owners of elderly Cessna airframes that have been regularly maintained with ACF-50 – the military grade solution to corrosion in airframes – can rest easy. They can show a consistent approach to avoiding corrosion at source and as such should not be affected.
The requirements around Cessna’s CPCP (Corrosion Prevention and Control Program) may well require non-conforming aircraft (those not inspected and

appropriately treated) to no longer be flown. However, in a recent communication to a concerned operator it was confirmed by Cessna’s Customer Care that “Cessna Aircraft Company does approve the use of ACF-50 for corrosion prevention“.
So, not only is ACF-50 your best defence against corrosion and against large costs for structural inspection and repair, but it might also prove to be your best defence against a regulator that could be accused of being over-enthusiastic too!

As European distributor for ACF-50, Adams Aviation is looking for more companies to join the list of current Application Centres RIGHT NOW! Application Centres not only get the chance to add value to servicing aircraft but also to provide corrosion prevention to an almost limitless number of other applications. These include all types of transport but really any mechanical or electrical equipment, large or small. The motorcycle market has found ACF-50 incredibly useful as you can see in the articles here on http://www.motorcyclenews.com and http://www.motorcycle-usa.com.
Check out this short video of how it works HERE!
For more information contact Dave Heppell for details on the minimal investment required to become an approved ACF-50 Application Centre.
