Default Engine upgrade - paperwork

I'm writing a series of blog post detailing an engine upgrade on my RV-8. The posts are not in any particular order.

This post highlights the importance of words - specifically the difference between "certified" and "certificated". In the eyes of the FAA, the difference can be 35 hours of test flying

Glad you got the weight of the paperwork low enough for the 8 to get back in the air.

Basically the way the FAA uses the terms is:
Certified means that the device meets it's Type Certificate. Since our aircraft do not have a Type Certificate, typically, they are Certificated, meaning that they have been issued a Certificate.
