There are well-defined steps during the construction of your amateur-built aircraft beginning with the Letter of Intent, on to the Inspections, getting the Registration Marks, performing the Fuel Flow Test, completing the Weight Report and the Application for Special CofA, receiving the Flight Permit, etc. The Handbook provides details on these and dozens of other topics to help you document the construction of your aircraft. If you are serious about building your own aircraft ask for your free copy from EAACC member Rem Walker, 2348 Garnet St., Regina, Sask., S4T 3A2. Tel.: 306-352-6442; Fax: 306-565-0694.

Flight Test Manual
Pointed questions are asked of you if your intent is to test fly the amateur-built aircraft your are building. "Are you qualified to test fly the aircraft?" "Are you familiar with the flight information provided by the designer?" "How much runway do you need to safely test fly the aircraft?" The intent is to prove that your aircraft will fly successfully, not to prove your macho image by trying to test fly an aircraft beyond your capabilities. If you are constructing an amateur-built aircraft and have received the registration marks, please send type of aircraft and registration marks to EAACC member Rem Walker, 2348 Garnet St., Regina, Sask., S4T 3A2, Tel.: 306-352-6442, Fax: 306-565-0694, for your free copy of the Flight Test Manual.
