It seems that I’m not the only one who has a pax-side door which is easily closed without the bottom pin being engaged. The result is more noise and wind. Has there been any indication from Cirrus that they recognize the problem? When I brought it up last year, Cirrus said “check pin alignment” and the service center said “there is nothing to adjust”.
Also, the Cessna-like seat rails I think are an accident waiting to happen. Cessna I think got a $400m judgment against them for an accident which was putatively due to sliding seat rails. I’d hate for any Cirrus owner to have an accident due to having their seat slide back during critical phases of flight, or for Cirrus to go out of business because they failed to address the problem.
I recall having an SB done on my plane for the sliding seat rails, but the problem still happens. I also have metal filings on the carpet behind the seats.
My t/o checklist is fairly simple:
flaps to 50% (check visually)
pax-side door completely closed
