I need some help.

In June I bought a Nanchang out of Canada.  My DAR required me to get ATF approval for the import.  After six weeks they informed me that they denied my request. They quoted some CFRs which say that imports from China were not allowed.  
Now I own a very pretty paperweight.

Two questions;
1.  Does an import from Canada require ATF approval?
2.  What options do I have?

I know for exports the Nanchang and Yak are exempt. I believe the import is the same. Review the ATF military import requirements. Heck, if imports from China were illegal then half the companies in the US would go out of business!

Hi Thom;

I don’t know anything about the ATF but I can assure you that your CJ6 is not the first to be imported into the US from Canada.
One of the four I imported (to Canada) in 1993 was subsequently purchased and imported (into the US) by a gentleman in Los Angeles. I don’t think it would be
appropriate for me to give his name here but he is still actively flying it and (I believe) monitors this List.

I would offer that one of your best bets is to contact the EAA's Government Representative, and by the way ... become an EAA member in the process, if you are not already.

This is the kind of thing that they are there for, and from personal experience I can tell you that they are extremely cooperative and professional folks that can right to the right place to help you.

By the way, the first thing I would have done would be to get a different DAR. The ATF will say "no" to just about anything.
