I am the current chairman of the board for Chapter 222 and EAA Sweden. (the reason for us having two EAA organisations in Sweden is because we have a delegated authority regarding many areas concerning amateur built aeroplanes. This was not in accordance with the US EAA organisation so we splitted ourselves into two organisations despite that we act as one)

Building:
- Inspection during build: Mandatory by a person assigned by the Swedish EAA before the start of the build, usually suggested by the builder. Needs to have some relevant experience.

- If yes inspecting authority: Yes, can be done by the CAA but normally as stated above by someone appointed by the Swedish EAA.

- final check for airworthiness by whom: By an approved EAA inspector, we have about ten at the moment. Not sure at the moment but I think these persons also have to be approved by the CAA after being nominated by the Swedish EAA.

Flying:
- Basic instruction allowed on EAB? Restrictions? No, but if this is approved by EASA in the upcoming wote, it will be ok in Sweden also.
- VFR by night allowed? Yes
- if yes, requirements? Same equipment as for normal GA aircraft
- IFR allowed, Yes
- If yes, requirements? Same equipment as for normal GA aircraft, here we have a grey area as to what instruments/avionics need to be TSO/ETSO approved
- Does the regulation state you have to avoid polulated/ build-up areas? No

Maintaining:
- Can the builder perform maintenance? Yes
- Can non-builder perform maintenance? Yes after a special EAA training and after having helping out at two 100h/annuals (approved for a specific aircraft)

- Can builder sign-off inspections or annuals? Yes
- Can non-builder sign-off annuals? Yes after a special EAA course and after having helping out at two 100h/annuals (approved for a specific aircraft)

Import
- can you import half finished kits from the US or other EU states? Yes
- can you import finished aircrafts from the US or other EU states? Yes
You must be able to show that it has been amateur built and if it is of a type not already existing in Sweden then you have to have the design approved before it can be registered, sometimes easy, sometimes very difficult.

I would be very thankfull if I could receive any relevant documents:
Sent me a PM with a mail address and we can discuss what you want and how to get them to you.

Maintaining:
- Can the builder perform maintenance? Yes
- Can non-builder perform maintenance? Initially no, yes after meeting certain requirements

- Can builder sign-off inspections or annuals? Yes
- Can non-builder sign-off annuals? Initially no, yes after meeting certain requirements

Import

I would be very thankfull if I could receive any relevant documents:
