    It seems to me, the experimental- research and development (testing of new design concepts), is the way to go.
    From the current 8139.2j, MIDO is the place to go. Maybe they could issue an...

    That's good to know in advance. I have an unfinished Avid Amphibian that can be certified either two or three seats. I will choose two seats at the time of application so it qualifies as Light Sport....

    Joe,
    I am still confused about post #13 where you said a student pilot can solo an EA-B with an instructors endorsement.
    But then in post #18 you said to me: as a Private Pilot I would need a...

    There was just the one page only in Sport Aviation. Contact magazine did a full article, and I think it was reprinted in the alternative engine book series.

    I am not so sure. The one operating limitation I found that is different is the very operating limitation that requires a category and class rating for the pilot in command. A Sport Pilot doesn't get...

    That is exactly on topic Dave.
    That says an internal document cannot be contrary to the plain language of the regulation. And 14CFR Part 61.31(k) (2) (B) is clearly plain language, as I see it....

    Thanks Mel, I figured I could just go down the list looking for all the 191(g) that apply to EA-B.

    I went through 8130.2j last night and could not find that limitation at all.

    Ok then.
    It would not be prudent for an individual to invest into something that may or may not be approved in the future.

    Regrettably, that doesn't help.
    I just want to know if I build an EA-B seaplane or VTOL, can I fly it solo without that appropriate category and class rating?

    Well, there might be options other than profit. Such as the corn feed I mentioned. Camping volunteers might enjoy doing something after hours at 7pm, for example.
