  • So far so good! DAR transition

    I hinted that big changes were coming to the FAA, they have started.

    I just received my DAR renewal. I now answer to a computer somewhere in the FAA. It seems like they are having machines manage DARs from now on.

    I will learn more as I go along. The good news is that I am still a Designee.

    I just received an electronic notice, from the FAA, not to issue an airworthiness certificate for a particular gyro on the East Coast. The subject gyro was "blackballed" by an inspector, with a list of items that failed the inspection for certification.
    Notifications like this are how the FAA keeps applicants from "shopping" for an airworthiness with different DARs. The applicant can still get their aircraft certified by correcting the discrepancies (they could all be paperwork?) Good luck to the applicant!

          Someone trying to bring in a Eurogyro and probably having paperwork problems. Some folks see Eurogyros for sale and assume they can buy them like a Cessna, not so today. I was just making a comment as all I know is the applicant was rejected for "discrepancies" ?
