SAIB Covering Piper Fuel Selectors
This posting will be removed on
Tuesday, November 9, 2021

There has been a long history of the FAA addressing Piper Cherokee fuel selector valves.  Due to a recent accident that precipitated the FAA to issue an Airworthiness Concern Sheet (ACS) querying operators on the prevalence and issues associated with the use of generation one (1) fuel selector valves in the current fleet.  Based on the response the FAA received, it is recommended that we remind the flying public of SAIB CE-14-22 and emphasize familiarity with the operation of and proper maintenance of the fuel selector valve as outlined in SAIB CE-14-22.
