I will need to search for it, then scan it. Will try to get it to you.
Some inspectors may take on a more aggressive stance on the certification requirement. First time I hear of that one in Canada.
At the time I did this, about 8 years ago, another builder was having trouble because he did not have analog instruments as a backup to his "dual Dynon, independent dual AHRS, each with their own backup battery". Took them a couple of years to resolve with escalation to the minister.
My inspection happened during that time, but I did have some analog steam gauges as backups ... nevertheless I created the document to placate any other concerns.
The process should be more smoother since there have been more IFR installations approved since that time.
