    You can, you're just not supposed to... The onus will be on the builder to attempt to rectify the situation when the DAR does something that the owner believes is contrary to the rules.

    That's...

    So as with the other thread regarding night lighting legality and approval that I just replied to you on, this is another issue where DAR's do different things. I HAD exactly the same interpretation...

    I'm glad to hear that there's an appeal path - that certainly is NOT made clear to folks when they hire a DAR for an inspection of an E-AB aircraft. DAR's certainly don't hand you a piece of paper...

    Very good. That's the argument I needed to hear, and I agree that the logic makes sense.

    I find it a bit strange that the FAA would exempt Experimental aircraft from the day VFR 91.205...

    I go back and forth on this one. Some days, I agree that 91.205 doesn't apply for EAB aircraft operated day VFR only since the OL's only discuss complying for night/IFR, and some days, I don't. While...
