I am still not so sure that your bird was finished yet when they started production.
Well, in my book aircraft is ready for production when its safe and doing exactly what you ask.
So, mission was to build 50 HP side-by-side ultralight trainer for European market. This way after they got German certification, mission was accomplished. It is finished and someone can take this paperwork and start production.
Big question is - can you make any changes to what is approved by Germans?
And if you install engine with 2 times more power, is it OK?
Do you need or could you, make needed changes to compensate for more power?
You got approval for 50 HP and MTOW 992 LB, but you are shipping to US 100 HP and MTOW 1320 LB.
So, is this aircraft finished? Is it ready for production?
