    I believe that the airworthiness certificate needs to be visible to pilot and passenger. Building a leather map case/pocket for my RV, planning on sticking the a.c. on the outside of that. How big should I make the pocket? Can anyone measure how big this document is?

    Actually, the reg says: displayed at the cabin or cockpit entrance so that it is legible to passengers or crew (not both). The typical commercially produced airplane document holder is 5" x 7"

    Thanks. I remembered from my previous plane that they were about "this big", but wanted to make sure I didn't make it too small. It's an RV-8A, so visible to one is visible to all. Will go down by my hip and the passenger's foot.

    When viewed from the start of a project the air worthiness document is HYUGE, really, really BIG!
