Default Passed Inspection!

Still hasn't hit me yet but as of yesterday N10JW is Airworthy! She successfully passed with no major issues. The DAR was fantastic throughout the process, fielding the numerous questions I had as well as help in completing all the fun FAA paperwork!

For the actual inspection he gave me to posture of the plane prior to coming out. Basically access panels removed, empennage fairing no screws, baggage panels removed but the engine cowled up. He spent about 45 mins looking over the plane, we also removed the cowling so he could see the engine. All in all I had 5 or so items he wanted me to double check and made some great suggestions.

We then went back to the heated FBO where he looked at my build log, FAA forms and made all the appropriate entries. He also walked me through the special airworthiness certificate which now also includes operating limitations. After everything was completed and explained we took the obligatory inspection picture and now I'm clear to fly!

Congratulations to both of you!!!

Joe, can you share some of the information on who did your inspection: DAR or FAA, Cost, etc.

I have a ways to go but starting to think about that kind of stuff.

Thanks
