It has been a frustrating wait, but multiple good things happened for us this week.
On Friday April 29th, our registration certificate arrived in the mail, and this opened the door for having our certification inspection the following day (Saturday, April 30th).
Mr. Frank Sneed, our DAR, walked through the whole process with the 7 Team Members that were in attendance, while they followed along using copies of his check list. Everything was found to be as it should be with the airplane, so when they were finished, we had in our hands a freshly filled out airworthiness certificate.
N112TF (first RV-12 built by Teen Flight) is now (in the FAA's eyes anyway) officially an airplane. Next step is to prove it's flight capabilities, as soon as we have insurance coverage. This is being generously donated by a broker/agent in Arizona, and it should be in place very soon.
