Resource Highlight: Online Builder's Log
August 2021 – As an aircraft builder, you know that you must document work on your project in order to demonstrate compliance with the FAA’s 51% rule. Did you know EAA offers a free online builder’s log for all EAA members? If you have not yet had an opportunity to check it out, I would highly recommend doing so.
The EAA Builder's Log allows members to post an unlimited number of entries, which can consist of photos, text, PDF documents, Excel files, and more, to create a detailed record of the work done on build and restoration projects alike. It is a great way to show your work to a designated airworthiness representative as well as sharing your progress with other members.
Beside unlimited entries and photos, perhaps its greatest feature is that it is keyword-searchable, making it a particularly useful tool when it comes to troubleshooting issues. Users can follow along other builds, although there is also a private entry feature that allows some entries to be visible to only the creator of the build log. It's also possible to document multiple builds at once, and multiple builders can contribute to the log in the case of group build projects.
For more information on using the EAA Builder's Log, a helpful webinar is available for EAA members to watch.
