My inspection was canceled at the last minute by the DAR, saying we have to get into the new online system. He says all of the paperwork and forms that I have filled out now have to be done online.

The DAR says this is new, and he did not find out about this until a day before our scheduled inspection.

Anyone here know about this? I can't find anything online.

That spikes my BS meter. Could in fact be a new mandate but the FAA would have notified the DARs that it was coming.
Just hope he isn't charging you extra for the delay/reschedule.

No extra charge. It is odd that 18 hours before the inspection, he calls saying we can't do it as we are not "in the system".

When I got the inspection for the JMR on 07/07/20 the FAA inspector wanted all the paper work filled out on the computer and emailed to him. Also, he emailed me paperwork to make a copy, sign and scan and emailed back to him.

My N number was not in the system until a couple days before the inspection. At first he said by the FAA records I don't have an N number. I emailed him a copy of my aircraft's registration. He said he had to make several phone calls to get it straighten up.
I think they are having a huge problem at his time.

Added-- The date of my registration is 11/ 19.

Similar here...the DAR sent me a form to fill out with a bunch of "Yes or No" questions. And I copied and emailed all of the forms back to him.

I did see this mentioned on another forum. I would suspect that there would be a transition period i.e a time where either method would be allowed. Like the old signs they used to put by the highway read ... "your tax dollars at work!" :)

The yes and no questions was for your Repairman's Certificate.

Maybe that is why there was 2 FAA inspectors here. One seem to be helping the other with the paper work. Couple of times I think they were as lost as I was. I signed me name so many times my hand got tired.

I've had DPEs tell me to fill out everything electronically, but always print a backup copy in case internet access goes down at the checkride. And guess what, it did @ my last checkride event! I even do the same thing with flight physicals.

Well...when asked if all AD's were complied with, I said "Yes".
When asked for the latest AD Bulletin's, I said "N/A".

Those were the only 2 questions that had a yes/no answer.

When the inspector ask if all AD's were complied with, I had the AD list for the new slick mags and said, " NA by serial number".
Same answer for the carb. Experimental engine built from parts. Culver experimental prop and Matco Experimental brakes. I built everything else.

Sure is a relief when the sign-off is complete. DONE, DONE.
