New EAA Homebuilt Aircraft Certification Kit Simplifies Complex Process
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. - (April 10, 2006) — A new amateur-built aircraft certification kit created by and now available from the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) gives aircraft builders a simplified way to complete the required FAA paperwork for their new projects.
EAA's Amateur-Built Aircraft Certification Kit includes everything you need to register and certificate a new experimental amateur-built aircraft in the United States. The 15-page, step-by-step Certification Guide walks you through the entire process-from getting an N-number to the aircraft inspection, and provides samples to help complete each required form.
Joe Norris, EAA Senior Aviation Information Specialist and FAA Amateur-Built Designated Airworthiness Representative, reviewed all of the materials included in the kit. He found that "whenever I inspect an aircraft for certification, the paperwork is what causes delays more often than anything on the aircraft. This guide will make the aircraft inspection go a lot easier."
The certification kit also includes all FAA forms, Experimental sticker (in black), dataplate, and a convenient placard decal sheet. Cost is $12.99 plus shipping for EAA members. The kit is also available for non-members for $19.99 plus shipping. To order, call EAA Membership Services at 1-800-JOIN-EAA (1-800-564-6322), or visit http://shop.eaa.org.
