Cirrus nose wheel pants are likely to be damaged by hard landings or failure to maintain proper tension adjustment in the nose wheel assembly. Improper tension can cause wheel shimmy resulting in tire sidewall deflection significant enough to crack the nose wheel pant. Hard landings or failure to "hold off" the nose wheel long enough during landing can cause the tire to compress enough to allow the wheel pant to contact the ground. As long as the cracks do not extend up too far into the sides of the pants, we can repair them and save you significant dollars over replacement.
Main wheel pants over time develop enlarged mounting holes that can lead to failure or further more severe damage. These to can be repaired, and fixes put in place to prevent further damage. If you have damaged wheel pants that you would like us to evaluate, Call today, 944-202-5995 or email us for an estimate for your aircraft.
Some facilities simply patch wheel pants from the inside in a very simple, unprofessional way. Platinum Aviation Service will always make repairs in the proper, professional way using the manufacturers guidelines. When repaired improperly the crack can and usually does reappear. Like with many things, it is not just the surface and the part that show that counts, it's what's under the surface that really matters.
These parts can become damaged by bird strikes and contact with objects on the ground. We can repair and paint these to look like new in many cases. send us some photos of your specific problem via email and we will let you know how we can help.
