    No offense intended. I was referring to the DAR in the original post, who said only PPL holders could do test flights.

    Apologies!

    Trying not to derail!

    1) Student pilots aren't mentioned in the first post, and I think we all agree that it's kinda dumb for a student to perform test flights on a new aircraft. A student pilot...

    While I saw away at editing down the fuselage build, I figured I'd pop out a quick video on repairing the turtle deck stringers.
