  1. The suit is basically about a cotter pin which holds the throttle cable to the throttle body can either break as it is made of steel (not stainless) or can work it's way out because it is too small. This is the Air Plains STC for a 300HP used for fish spotting that crashed in Louisiana. The plaintiff alleges that all the aircraft (12 others) in his employers fleet with the same upgrade had the same defect.
