    Questions for the DAR

    This pertains to E-AB aircraft.

    1. Under what circumstances does the Special Airworthiness Certificate cease to be valid?

    2. What is the impact of the original builder removing the data plate?

    3. Is there a way forward after the original builder removes the engine, de-registers the N-number, removes the data plate and donates the project to an EAA Chapter?

    Thanks in advance for your wise counsel. -glen

    Suspended, surrendered or revoked

    depends. In what context? He removed it to make the plane not flyable?

    3. Is there a way forward after the original builder removes the engine, de-registers the N-number, removes the data plate and donates the project to an EAA Chapter?
    A way forward to make the plane flyable again?

    I presume he removed the data plate to disassociate himself from the project.

    Yes, to make the plane flyable again.

    If there's no data plate and paperwork, you have a collection of airplane parts, not an airplane that can be registered and flown.

    So assuming someone wanted to take this collection of airplane parts and create a flyable airplane, what would be the steps?

    Biggest hurdle will be compliance with the 51% amateur-built rule. You need the build log for the plane to prove it amateur-built but if the builder was trying to distance himself from the project you may have a deal-breaker. If the log can be obtained and the plane is amateur-built then you can begin the registration process the same as a new build.

    I know people have done it in the past. Have to research - will report back.

    do you have a bill of sale to prove ownership?
