I tend to get a bit irked when someone say "doesn't have the time
or skills". I mean, I had a 2 and 4 year old kid to raise, and
I took the time. I also didn't have any prior airplane building
experience, and experimental planes are for EDUCATION and
recreation....so you're supposed to LEARN the skills along
the way. So to me, it's a cop out when someone just
says they're too busy or don't know how. There are people
that take 1 year, and people that take 6 or 10 years to
complete their homebuilt...and most of them can then
take the pride that they indeed did build it.

Also, I saw a posting on another forum recently where someone
said that they didn't build their plane, and that now they
have some maintenance they need to do, but they don't know
how to do it. And, they didn't really want to take things
apart very far to get to the parts in question. I pondered
that for a minute....now, not only did the guy buy the
plane, but he doesn't have the ambition to learn and take
it apart to do proper maintenance and wants to slide through
as simple as possible on that, too. What a shame. Wouldn't
it be better to grab the plans and tear into it, and
learn about how the plane is built at least? What a
shame, the level of concern we sometimes show for gathering
knowledge.

To me, I was happy to see RV-10's held in high regard by
AOPA's magazine, but I really think they went down the
wrong path using an example of the plane that wasn't
being flown by the actual builder. It's nice press
coverage, but really, it's a homebuilt plane, and
it would be nice if an honest to goodness homebuilder
could share their even greater joy and regard for the
process, and how much it enriched their life and experience.
Not knocking anyone in particular with that...it's just
that really, it's a nice plane and all, but it's the
complete understanding, attention to detail, ultra
care in maintenance and quality, and that sort of thing
that sets us apart. The plane itself can be far better
than most certified planes, simply due to the fact that
an honest to goodness homebuilder "Repairman" can
do improvements that FAA regs would handicap them
from being able to accomplish if it were certified...at
least without tons of paperwork.

Tim,

I was saying to myself, as I thumbed to the AOPA article, I hope it's Tim...but no.  Oh well.

Geez, the timing couldn't be worse, since we're all waiting to see what FAA finally decides regarding 51%.  I'm pretty sure they're NOT gonna say it's OK to violate the rule as long as you keep the operation non-commercial...

And although I for one am glad some people don't have the skills required (thereby generating my paycheck...), I agree that it is tiresome to hear about people who blatantly violate the rules.  Somehow worse when they put it in black and white.  Worse than that is when our #2 lobbying organization puts it in black and white for them, and either looks the other way or doesn't know the difference.  C'mon, AOPA.

I feel frustrated that the opportunity to showcase the RV-10 was done the way it was. I wrote a letter to Dave and told him so. I would encourage many to let Dave know how you feel. I believe he did a disservice to the RV-10 community, the EAA and his readers by using such a poor example for Builders. As an outsider I would think I was reading about a "build to suit" aircraft not a homebuilt, the experience of building was completely lost in this by "not having time or skills" as Tim says who does?? this is for education and that usually takes time to learn the skill.
Mosty of us will agree, Tim or even Jesse Saint and his efforts to teach Equadorian folks a trade via the RV-10 would have been much better way to discuss a "homebuilt" aircraft.

It's not about me.... I'd love to see Scott, Vic, or
anyone who's out really USING their RV-10 for some
good trips be in an article. I write enough of my
own garbage. Smile I just really think that if there's
going to be an article about a homebuilt, it should
show the very good parts about the entire process,
the airplane, and why it's so good. IMHO, homebuilts
have the best potential to be very very safe planes,
especially when they're cared for by the person who
is really in love with their creation. As I lease
this Cherokee I'm continually annoyed by the concept
that if I could only dig in and do all the work on it
without such restriction, I could correct so many
deficiencies in safety. Under the cowl that plane
is a mess, compared to the average RV-10, yet it's
still airworthy once it's in the hands of an A&P
with a pen. So we have opportunities to really
have a world where mechanical issues are just not
really existent on any real level...because we
are the builder...we are the repairman.

Tim,
Maybe it's the owner who wants their plane to look like shit and not pay an honest amount of money to fix it. You can always find some one to do work and sighn it off.
But its the owner who has to say do it right. And Pay.

It's not about me.... I'd love to see Scott, Vic, or
anyone who's out really USING their RV-10 for some
good trips be in an article. I write enough of my
own garbage. Smile I just really think that if there's
going to be an article about a homebuilt, it should
show the very good parts about the entire process,
the airplane, and why it's so good. IMHO, homebuilts
have the best potential to be very very safe planes,
especially when they're cared for by the person who
is really in love with their creation. As I lease
this Cherokee I'm continually annoyed by the concept
that if I could only dig in and do all the work on it
without such restriction, I could correct so many
deficiencies in safety. Under the cowl that plane
is a mess, compared to the average RV-10, yet it's
still airworthy once it's in the hands of an A&P
with a pen. So we have opportunities to really
have a world where mechanical issues are just not
really existent on any real level...because we
are the builder...we are the repairman.

Some A&Ps use their pen to document discrepancies.  The A&P who signs it "Airworthy and Safe for Return to Flight" is only doing so at a glimpse of time against a documented and consistent TCDS standard.  The FAR says it’s the operator who assumes All and final responsibility for an aircraft placed in flight as Airworthy.  If a discrepancy is noted by an Operator, it is the operator who needs to inform the Renter/Owner as well as a receptive A&P and then not launch the thing.
 
What we do have is a rapidly aging fleet.  A smaller new fleet that is well beyond the financial reach of most and now an AOPA article that says those with money can have those with talent, build them an aircraft that they certify the guy with money had built for Non Commercial Enjoyment.  We also have an aging pilot base and a dwindling number of customers to support quality A&P services.
 
There is nothing wrong with an OBAM aircraft in the hands of a passionate and receptive operator.

Very true. I'm sure lots of A&P's just cringe at some
customers because they know the guy will just want it done
cheap...because work costs money. There's always that
tendency to say "Can you fix it, and what's the most
economical way to finish this?"....as opposed to "Can
you fix this and I'd like to see it fixed as good as
we can so that we never have to deal with this type of
issue again...i'd like it like new or better".
But you're absolutely right...the owners are the ones
who have to step up...even in our homebuilder groups.

Dr. Peeler holds a recent Commercial with Instrument ticket and has
authorizations for TBMs and T-33 but doesn't show a Repairman cert for
his fine AOPA magazined Raddatz built aircraft. This is similar to
Scott Gustafson's and ten other Raddatz builds that are flying. With
the final interpretation about to be chiseled in granite by the Fed, the
51% rule is allowing many RV-10s built by Professionals to be purchased
and flown by individuals of means and the passion to join this group of
flying RV-10's. As Tony Soprano would say on the subject of caring not
in the feeding a maintenance of such birds.... Forgetaboutit. There are
many who say they did the work of others or color their prose a bit to
get the airworthiness.

It was light years ago that a ragtag group of Yahoo fans migrated here
in hopes of a builder forum for RV-10 builders.

Our insurance pool will soon be made up of the wide swath of interested
RV-10 operators (some not builders). Unless an insurance company
creates a better financial deal for an improved gene pool of "builder"
aircraft, we become a product of our own success with well financed Dr.
Peeler's of the RV-10 community.

AOPA reported in the article 100 completed and another 1000 sold. My
numbers are just a bit off that projection. Flying 128/ Sold 983 leaving
755 of us out in the cold lusting after the first group that's flying
with all those stories and romantic getaways.

I concur that AOPA and EAA should both do an article on the raising and
feeding of the Olson clan while completing N104CD. Can anyone trump
Tim's accomplishments on the RV-10?

And then there is the story told to me by an Oshkosh judge; they were
looking at a Lancair IV that was under consideration for a top award. When
they asked the
owner to un cowl the airplane it became apparent that he was not sure how to
do it.

He was dropped from consideration for the award.

Tim;
Maybe you write a lot, in my case it's motivational with places to go and
mostly responses to most people on and off list. I think what most of us are
saying is there is far more benefit to having a person who has done quite a
lot for the RV-10 community than the poor choice that was used. Let me give
you an example- Jason Paur wrote an article on Van, Having you in there
would have been a great benefit to readers to see the other side to the
article- you are a perfect candidate to show that the RV-10 is meant to be
built by a unqualified candidate initially with a 2 and 4 year who found
time and the necessary skills to complete and fly the plane throughout the
country at that.

Sounds like the FAA is doing what any bureaucracy does. Whenever anyone
bends the (rule) fence. Instead of addressing the offenders directly , their
time tested response is build a bigger fence

..... Flying 128/ Sold 983 leaving 755......

Looks like a typo, I think you meant 228 flying and that is 28 above what
Vans shows. I am guessing that your number is more accurate since Vans only
reports what they are told by the builders and not all builders tell Vans
that they are flying.

Ya guys, no embarrassing Tim lest he take his website offline ala Checkoway. Of course Dan forgot about a little something called the Internet Archive. As the kids of today are learning, once on the Internet, it's there forever. Smile

Or the mechanically capable owner that is able to find an amenable A&P
to supervise properly restoring the aircraft to what it should be.
I do carry 30-40lbs of tools on most flights, more if planning to do

Maybe it's the owner who wants their plane to look like shit and not

But its the owner who has to say do it right. And Pay.

I don't carry 100 lbs of tools in my planes and neither do my customers.

Ya guys, no embarrassing Tim lest he take his website offline ala Checkoway. Of course Dan forgot about a little something called the Internet Archive. As the kids of today are learning, once on the Internet, it's there forever. Smile
