Finished the Pre-buy book!
 
Great News! While I didn't learn how to play a musical instrument during COVID, I did take the time to write a book on Pre-buys for Amateur-Built aircraft. I haven't been able to travel commercially during this time, so I came up with the next best thing. At least I hope it works for everyone.

Anyone should now be able to perform a high-quality pre-purchase examination of an amateur-built aircraft, either alone or with your inspector, with the book in hand. It's 12 chapters long, spiral-bound, on glossy, high-quality paper, with over 200 color pictures, a checklist, and hints for both the*seller and buyer. With the cost of the average pre-buy averaging $1000 (including travel), this book should be of huge value to purchasers and owners.

For those of you who currently own or have built an amateur-built aircraft, you will be able to use it yourself to inspect your aircraft or give it to your mechanic.*I am working on the maintenance book, but it will be a while. I couldn't believe how much work this one took. I think Carol spent more time editing it so it was publishable than I did writing it!




Purchase it at Lulu.com "Pre-Buy Guide For Amateur-Built Aircraft"*or use this link:*

Any chance you will be selling it at Oshkosh next year?

Working to get it in the EAA store/website. If you currently own an RV I would encourage you to get it now. It is very useful as a “what to look for” till when inspecting your airplane.

The prebuys I do are pretty close to a Condition Inspection, with the difference being we don’t fix anything (unless it is a safety of flight issue), and don’t perform routine maintenance such as greasing props, repacking wheel bearings, etc.

Is there anyway to sell this as an electronic copy?

Like the EAA flight test book, I would love a copy but the price triples when you try and send a stack of paper around the world!

+1 on that. I ordered the EAA flight test manual and have just spent hours scanning it so I can take it on the road in my iPad. I'd love to have this book but I'll wait for the electronic version.

Ordered. Excited! And I already own a plane!

Request #3 for an electronic version!
