Default Basic Med?

I switched to Basic Med this year, and the "certificate" is attached to my logbook, which I don't carry in the plane. That info is online, though, so the FAA (or anyone) could check. I carry my Repairman's Certificate in the plane.

Since the repairmans certificate is only needed for the annual condition inspection, there seems little reason to carry it around with you.

Unless you need to do maintenance on the road somewhere, and a "do-gooder" tries to interfere...

Built an off-plan 9A with too much fuel and too much HP. Should drop dead any minute now.

Repairman certificate has nothing to do with maintenance.
Only required for the condition inspection.

OK, well, you may know that. I may know that. The local A&P who is irate enough to come over while you are pulling a major component off of your plane may not. It may at least be enough to get someone to pay attention to what reasons you may have for doing something (s)he may think is a violation. Just thinking out loud here.

If an FAA type is about to cite you for anything, simply ask him to show you the regulation he is citing you for. He is required to do that.

There is no regulation anywhere that prohibits anyone doing maintenance on an experimental amateur-built aircraft.

So would it be "legal" for me to...say...change a propeller on my aircraft without a Repairman's Certificate?

Yep! Just follow you operating limitations. You must place the aircraft back into phase I for testing if the replacement is not the same make and model as the one removed.
And submit a new 8130-6 to FAA if changing of a fixed pitch from or to a controllable propeller.

The easiest solution is to just keep your required documents in a zip-loc bag, and keep that in a pocket in the plane. It protects them and leaves them easily accessible for inspection. Airworthiness, registration, and any not often used cheat sheets for avionics are in mine.

When will experimental pilots get this right? You can do anything, anytime, anywhere except the condition inspection without a repairman certificate.
