    New Optional Task-based Phase 1 Flight Test Program for E-AB

    In my case, building from a kit with no major modification, it would have reduced the 40 hour Phase 1 significantly. I followed the recommended flight test tasks in AC 90-89B. I scheduled about 35 flights with specific tasks and a flight test card for each flight. The majority of the specific...

    Flightview EFIS and EMs

    I agree. I'm not an Apple guy myself, I have a friend who is building and he is considering this system. It's pretty new so I thought I'd ask about it here to see in anyone had used it yet. I wouldn't want to be the first one to buy it. Also, I'm not a fan of the touch screen controls...

    FAA Form 8050-2 Bill of Sale

    Anyone know if the FAA will accept a Bill of Sale that has been downloaded from the FAA website and printed out? The last time I sent in a Bill of Sale the feds would only accept the original form. I had to go to the FSDO and pick up a copy. I can't get the local FSDO to answer the phone and...

    Compass requirements?

    For those of you using the little pocket compasses in your plane, have you checked to see if you experience any deviation errors in flight? Depending on your plane, you might be better off without it.
