Default Almost All Done

Question to all,
We have complete our RV10 (except wheel pants) and will have the DAR inspection tomorrow May 6th. We are builder 40555 and it has been a joy building this plane, but it did take 13 years plus. Test flight will be soon!!!
Question for today are the RV10 service bulletins. My log book has a place for AD's, but thought that the SB's should not be placed there. Maybe a better place would be in the front of the log book, or does it matter where they placed.

Congrats on that elephant dinner

I printed out each of the S/Bs and signed off either as Non Applicable or Complied and just showed them to the FAA inspector-----he was fine with doing it that way, made no mention of log book entries.

Hello Craig:

I had my -10 inspection yesterday. The inspector did not ask about Service Bulletins or ask for a log book entry.

That said, not a bad idea for future reference to have them listed. I had them printed but nothing entered.

Default A.D.s & S.B.s

I have them listed on page one of my conditional inspection list. That reminds me to add any new items each year as well as check any re-occurring items. Also indicate each as N/A, completed/date, etc. All are then signed off and filed in my maint. folder.

I would make sure each SB is referenced in the build log and know where to find it if the inspector asks.

Thanks for all different ways to handle the S/B's. I do have them ready to show him.
Thanks

Default DAR Complete

Howdy to ALL,
Our DAR inspection went well yesterday on our RV10. Our inspector had given me a 4 page document of the things that he was going to look at which made our job and his job easier. No surprises for either of us!
So now after 13 + years it is on to the fun stuff. 40 hours of testing that I hope goes well...

Keep pounding rivets, ask a lot of questions, but most importantly enjoy the journey
