Question Northwest region DAR

Hey, can anyone recommend a DAR who you might have enjoyed working with during your inspection process?

Looking to get the process started and hoping to find someone who can do a good job!

Thanks

Default local DAR

Charlie Cotton inspected my 9 earlier this year. He's based at Tacoma Narrows. He did a fine job inspecting and making sure I understood my operating limitations.
He's also very helpful during your registration process.
He's very approachable...give him a call.

I am in Everett often, can easily go to Anacortes. Have inspected over 300 aircraft. Send me an email, I will send you a couple of forms and an easy to follow guide on how to enter the project into the nes FAA "AWC" portal.

Regards,

Gary did my RV-14 in Eugene. It was a great experience and he is highly recommended.

And another: Gary inspected my Long-EZ last June in the height of the pandemic. Thanks, Gary.

Default Inspections - When?

Maybe a dumb question, but at what point throughout construction do you typically have someone come look over your work? After/during every different kit?

The DAR only needs to see the aircraft at the time of inspection, however, many DAR's like myself are Tech Counselors, and there are lots of other RV guys and tech counselors ready to help! Contact your local chapter!
