A conditional inspection is just that, It passes or not.Not quite. An annual inspection can be signed off by an IA with a list of discrepancies that must be fixed, but not a condition inspection, it's either in "condition for safe operation" or it's not.
In this case, the purchaser needs to find an A&P who is willing to sign off the inspection, or trailer or home.
An Annual inspection is just that, It passes or not.
An A/P corrects discrepancies on an Annual... The Annual is not in force until those discrepancies are corrected.
The pilot/owner corrects discrepancies on his machine... Conditional not in force (So what's the rub?)
In any case the PILOT returns the aircraft into service - Not the mechanics...(They only sign off their work)
