    Thanks Stan. Sounds like you figured it all out, from owning to maintaining an experimental aircraft. Good for you! Will consider LS repairman-inspection certificate if end up buying a RV 6A /7A.

    Nothing to consider. RV6 and RV7are not LSAs. (Too fast, many too heavy, and all are too bitchen :)) The only repairman certificate available is for the primary builder of an E-AB.

    On the other hand, you could go with an RV12 which is LSA. Then you can do the LSRI or LSRM. See this for more: https://rainbowaviation.com/?p=3198

    Ravioli is right; The LSRI and LSRM certificates only apply to LSAs. If you buy a Van's airplane, the RV12 is your only choice for a repairman certificate unless you are the primary builder of an Experimental - Amateur Built Van's model.

    I had my Zodiac recertificated to ELSA by Brian Carpenter, DAR and A&P/IA at Rainbow Aviation. I also did the LSRI class there.

    That looks really nice, Patrick; the AirPlains 180 hp STC is a big plus. What's the airframe total time and is the airplane at STS?

    There’s the Liberty-XL. It’s 2 place, comes IFR equipped. You’ll want the ones with the Vanguard useful load upgrade.
