      Any tips on having the landing gear NDT’d? I’ve been told by our mechanic that we are due at next annual. We have a 310K with about 5K hours on the airframe.

        I have owned 310s and 340s for 30 years and never heard of required NDT inspection of the landing gear. The biggest problem with the landing gear is misrigging by inexperienced A&Ps and not having the side brace kit installed. There has been mention of inspectiong the latching bolts for cracking, bit I do not think it is mandatory. You might ask Tony Saxton of TAS Aviation who is the guru of these planes. He will answer your question easily.
