B) saturday was the big day were i'd find out just how good my workmanship is and if i had all the paperwork in order. The inspector turned up and we went thru all the assembly and parts manuals. read and accepted the report on my lazairs history. studied the list of components replaced and thoughly inspected the area of repairs and then went on with a fine tooth comb over the rest of the airframe. We then placed the lazair on scales and recorded 76KG/ 168lbs empty.
Demonstrate the method to obtain the CoG. A long worried wait while he rechecked his entries and then finally entered into the new aircraft log book that this aircraft conforms to the appropriate regs and recommends that it be returned to service with zero time airframe and engines. YAHOO. First part of the paper war done. just have to add 2 sets of photos of the Lazair, a flight manual, some cash and send the whole lot in. with a bit of luck i'll be allocated a number, then put it on the left wing take a photo of it send it to them and then i'll get the certificate. so a few more weeks to go but i'm on the home straight. After all the work,setbacks and sucesses over the last 3 years, i feel like i can stand back and take a deep breath. THANKS for all the help guys i couldn't have got this far without OZZIE
