So you built an airplane in your garage and want to go fly it.
The purpose of this web site is to tie all the info together in one place to help you get your Airworthiness Inspection, get the Special Airworthiness Certificate (FAA Form 8130-7), and Operating Limitations issued so that all legal requirements are meet before you fly your airplane.
The EAA and the FAA both have all the info on their web sites on how to do this. This goal of this site is to link all the info together in one easy to use location. By having everything in one easy to use location, it will be easier to get an Amateur Built Aircraft through its airworthiness inspection.
For the builder, this site simplifies getting ready for your airworthiness inspection. Provides all the necessary info on what you need to do in one place and links to the forms.
For the DAR, this site will provide all the necessary info for your customer. When you get the paperwork for the inspection, everything is filled out correctly so you spend less time doing follow up calls. This should allow you to give the best possible service to your customers and less time correcting paperwork.
For the FAA, the applicant will ask fewer questions and provide all the necessary paperwork correctly filled out when the application for airworthiness is submitted.
There is a lot of paperwork to do but do not worry. Building the airplane took a long time and a lot of hard work. The paperwork is not hard but it will take time.
