    Who ever you were talking to at FAA doesn’t even know their own policy. Item E1 in the AFS-300 job aid clearly says it would be EVL or evaluation. I’ve done lots of DER approvals for different wheels...

    In some ways I agree with you, but in recent years I’ve seen IAs that can’t even make a log book entry much less determine if they have sufficient data. You would be surprised at the blank stares I...

    Bob, I’ve done a number of approvals for Cleveland wheels and brakes on lots of airplanes, Cubs, multiple Wacos and several others. So long as you can show the wheels and brakes were certified on an...

    No, a DER can not sign a 337, but if the 337 cites all the required approved data (the DER 8110-3 that says it covers ALL the requirements) then the IA can sign block 7 with no additional approval...

    AC43-210A is the guide for Field Approvals. The hardest thing is developing a Compliance Checklist. You need to research the applicable regulations, then describe how your project will comply with...

    On gliders we use Mylar tape for gap seals, wide enough to cover the gap, double sided tape on the fixed surface to adhere the Mylar. If you are worried about scuffing the movable surface, put Teflon...

    Aerial telemetry antenna for Cubs

    But E-AB would not work for the mission described in this thread. 91.319 says you can only use the aircraft for the PURPOSE for which it is certified. Tracking stuff with external antennas doesn’t...

    PMA can be by “identicality” but doesn’t have to be. You can get PMA by showing compliance to a regulation along with form fit and function, or several other ways.

    Not exactly correct. The ABI kit is a PMA group of parts. The Parker kit is a TSO group of parts. The requirement to provide written authorization is found in 14CFR 21.120. It doesn’t specify how...

    Sounds like the Field Approval route will be your answer. Some FSDOs will still do them. They just removed the geographic restrictions from DARs, so you can work with a DAR or a DER to get the...

    You need written permission of the STC owner to use an STC on a specific aircraft. I may be wrong, but I think Cleveland will only give permission if you buy the wheels and brakes from them.
