Default EAA's Amateur built Aircraft Certification kit

For all you guys/gals nearing completion of your airplane, the EAA has a complete kit available for just $12.99 for members. It includes everything you need to register and certificate a new Experimental amateur-built aircraft. The 15 page step-by-step Certification guide walks you through the entire process from getting an N number to the aircraft inspection. The kit includes all FAA forms, Experimental sticker (black), dataplate and a convenient placard decal sheet. Call EAA 800 564-6322 to order.

This from EAA's recent news,

Regards,

Call your local FAA office and they will send you the same thing FREE.

The FAA will not send the "EXPERIMENTAL" sticker, data plate, or placard sheet.
They will however send you all the paperwork.
If you are not familiar with the system, EAA's kit is a pretty good deal.

I just got the EAA kit and while I think $12.99 is a little high since I probably won't use their sticker or data plate I did like the instructions that showed an example of how to fill in all the forms. After reading about people's registrations being rejected for minor issues, I think this alone was well worth it.

I sent my registration in today so we'll see how it goes.

I agree with Paul, and feel the EAA packet is worthwhile.
I used both the FAA and EAA info.
The EAA examples pointed out the pitfalls in the forms.

Default EAAs certification kit

I used the EAA's kit and found it very helpful. My registration came back in 2-3 weeks with no issues. That alone made the kit worthwhile. If you mess up that process, others have fallen into a black hole that took weeks to get out of. When it came time for Mel to inspect, while Mel does lead you through the paperwork, the kit was also helpful during that process also.

Sell the sticker and data plate on ebay.

$12.99 is what? It's about the gas you use to taxi to and from the runway on your first flight. I thought I was cheap.

Study all the EAA legal department does for us (home builders) and general aviation, they are worth being a member.

George,

I'm not complaining, I think the $12.99 was worth it, at least I will if I have no problems with my registration, but I think it should be a member service to make the writtten material available on the EAA website at no charge. If you want to buy the stickers and data plate, fine, but the info on filling out the forms should just be available for nothing.

I used it when I built the RV 10, and will use it again for our new project.

Also, I plan to get the new flight test program from EAA.

I find that the airplanes I license as a DAR have much fewer problems with the paperwork, registration, and data plates when using the EAA kit.
