Tom's thread about using others' parts to construct an exp got me to wondering... If I buy a completed, flying exp, what paperwork must I be sure to acquire? (I'm seriously thinking about it). Ie: AROWE? Airframe/Eng/Prop logs Avionics documentation Build Logs? What else? Annotate each as "Mandatory if you want FAA's approval and need to buy insurance" or the alternate "really should have but not mandatory". And, is it possible to have an airplane in which the original AirCert was approved by a 'slack' examiner......only later to be rescinded upon finding of undesirable details by a 'tough' examiner? Hopefully unlikely if possible.
