    These instructions and bulletins all leave quite a things unanswered.

    On the stitching issue I did not know CC had a program to fix them. Just today I was putting my rear seat in and noticed some stitch issues in a different area than the bulletin wanted us to look at.

    A friend and I were looking for some cows for a rancher that had not wandered home yet.

    Found a pair in this little meadow last week and a bull today. It was fun to watch from above as we directed him by radio to the bull. And that bull did not want to be pushed. He had a saddled horse in the stock trailer and burst out after the bull like a scene from a Western movie, just like the posse closing in on the bad guys.

    Yikes! That's definitely not good and not the area covered by the SB. I'll go and thoroughly check the sling seat today.

    I just reinspected my sling seat on my 2014 CC. Everything is in great shape so there must have been a batch with a problem. That new seat must be a net increased of at least 4 or 5 pounds and there is no place to stow it when not needed.

    I'll speculate that the new seat was requested by a training organization that uses flight instructors less than 6 ft tall. In the back of my FX-3 my legs are at almost full stretch to reach the rudder pedals and brakes. In the front seat I wish I had at least another 3 inches of leg room with the seat all the way back.

    Note that the new rear seat rises as it goes forward, just what you would want for shorter instructors. No easy tilt and no stowage when removed would not be factors in a flight training environment.
