Great news!Morph wrote:We had Pierre from RAASA (Wildthing on this forum) and Braam Hechter for CAA at our meeting last night and this is what they told us
An owner can do the maintenance on his own aircraft which includes replacing plugs, oil, filters, adjustment of carbs, replacing batteries, replacing nuts, bolts and wires etc. There is an AIC out, that he will post once he gets back to his office
The heavier stuff, like engine rebuilds should be done by an AP, suitably qualified person or AMO.
If you are the owner/builder of your aircraft you may do all the maintenance, repairs, rebuilds etc and inspect your aircraft yourself. You can only do this on your ownaircraft as long as you own it. Make the relevant entries in the logbook/flight folio, and where it asks for AP licence number write owner/builder
Note I am talking about Microlights and LSA. Not GA
Thanks Morf, and thanks to Braam, Pierre and the rest of the team as well
