    So, will they be PMA parts acceptable to be installed on certified aircraft, or Experimental

    One thing to think about when considering your IA's bill: liability insurance - the same thing
    that costs us $300/year - is around $4000/year for a mechanic/IA.This is part of the reason we
    may be the...

    Clyde is the only source of the original build sheets (Piper may also have them). The frame
    number as well as the wing numbers were asset numbers that Piper used for inventory. I don’t
    think I’ve ever...

    To follow on with this, suppose you have an airplane covered long ago using some STC. Now it is

    Some of us go on the miracle diet. Pilot and passenger each lose 50 pounds while walking from

    Univair has a reprint from Cub Clues that details what is required based on the serial number

    Keep in mind, it is the INSTALLER that makes the Major/Minor determination, NOT the FAA. An A&P
    is supposed to use the existing regulations (Part 1 and Part 43),, along with Policy (AC
    43-210, AFS-300...

    I think it was sometime around 1986 when Congress first passed the law requiring an STC holder
    to provide a document that showed a specific aircraft could use that STC. FAA ignored this law
    until abou...

    So with all this discussion, the more typical example would be an Aircraft that doesn’t have
