Has anyone else received a service bulletin from Lycoming? Here’s the story:
I checked to see if the registration of our airplane was correct in the http://184.108.40.206/acdatabase/DEFSTD.ASPFAA database. It was, but the engine is listed as a Lycoming IO360. I checked a couple other SR20s and several other registrations list Lycoming (although many correctly show Continental).
I sent an email to the FAA database folks and mentioned that there were several SR20s listed wrong – the reply I received was prompt (and wasn’t an automated response), but just said they’d look into the problem.
In the meantime, I received the Lycoming service bulletin today. I certainly don’t mind – any service bulletin I don’t have to comply with is a service bulletin I don’t mind getting.
But what’s more important to me is that if Continental issues a service bulletin, I’m afraid that as it stands, I won’t receive it, assuming they also use the FAA database.
I’ll follow up tomorrow with the FAA but since there are at least some other SR20s registered with “Lycoming” engines, I was curious if anyone else got it (or has any better suggestions for a resolution).
