Vic Syracuse made a perfect landing at the conclusion of the first flight.

Default Cupla questions on the one week wonder...

Airplane is owned by Experimental Aircraft Assn Inc.
I suspect that the EAA has sufficient A&Ps that a repairman certificate is not needed.

From a previous article:

After the fly-in, the RV-12iS will be “very, very carefully inspected” by the EAA aircraft maintenance department, and following its first flight and mandated 40-hour fly off, it will be painted in livery conceived for the project by Scheme Designers. Though paint will cover the signatures of the hundreds of builders, their names are recorded digitally for posterity. The RV will then replace the Zenith One Week Wonder, which is currently on a tour of EAA chapters and aviation events, and later it will join the EAA flying club in Oshkosh to help EAA staffers earn their pilot certificates.

Interesting...If the article is correct, I guess they are registering it E/A-B, not ELSA.

That is correct. Further evidence is that the "builder" is "Experimental Aircraft Assn Inc".
If it were ELSA, "Vans Aircraft Inc" would be listed as the builder.
