Upper Cabin Door

This aircraft's upper cabin door opened in flight. 

After reviewing the case, it was determined the most likely cause was a failed door warning light bulb along with the copilot not latching the upper door, this almost caused the loss of the aircraft.

Spectra Jet was contacted to remove the upper door, after that, it was sent to the manufacturer for repair on the original jig. 
A 300/600 hr inspection was added when the door repair took longer than expected.  Several weeks later, the door was adjusted to fit, painted and installed, good as new.

The door opened in flight, cracking at both the forward and aft upper corners.



The door was stripped along the hinge to assist in drilling out the hi-loks.




The door was removed and then sent to the manufacturer for rebuild.




The door after repair required some "fitting" as the Manufacturer's Reps stated



Final paint and reinstallation complete
the job, as good as new.
