That's interesting about the optional corrosion proof coating. I would think that information would be part of the sale notes - so in theory, we should be able to see if we already have the corrosion proofing on our spar? We're an M model.

Paolo; After talking to the FAA and very experienced 210 maintenance experts, I learned that removal of the corrosion inhibiting coating (CIC)--typically zinc chromate primer--is not required prior to the visual inspection.

This means that the FAA has decided that a previously applied CIC is not a sufficient reason to not comply with the AD.

You can comment to the AD; the address and reference number is included in my original post in this thread.

Best,
Steve

Yes, IPads don't like heat and it's hard to keep them out of the sun at times.

being aware of the AD I note that the reason to exclude the model from N on is because they are corrosion proof coated by factory.
Many Aircraft before the N model exited the factory with optional corrosion proof coating (mine included T210M dtd 1977). I wander if anybody evidenced that to the FAA or will do it.
Being the reason of corrosion proof to exclude the aicraft from the AD accomplishement, I think interesting to note it to FAA.
For me it would be extremely difficult to speak with FAA as I am from Italy .I think that some association or expert who knows FAA can have better chances of success and avoid FAA to be submerged by single case letters.
