REVISED LISTING OF AMATEUR-BUILT AIRCRAFT KITS

 

October 22, 1997

The following is a revised listing of aircraft kits which have been evaluated and found eligible in meeting the "major portion" requirement of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR part 21), specifically section 21.191 (g). This listing is only representative of those kits where the kit manufacturer requested an evaluation by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for eligibility.

This listing SHOULD NOT be construed as meaning the kit(s) are FAA "certified", "certificated", or "approved".

There are other aircraft kits that meet the "major portion" requirement of section 21.191 (g), but those manufacturers have not requested an FAA evaluation. The placement of an aircraft kit on this list is NOT a prerequisite for amateur-built airworthiness certification. The primary purpose of this listing is to assist FAA Inspectors/Designees and other interested individuals by eliminating the duplication of evaluations for "major portion" determination.

 

Additional information and guidance can be found in Advisory Circular (AC) 20-27D, Certification and Operation of Amateur-Built Aircraft, and in AC 20-139, Commercial Assistance During Construction of Amateur-Built Aircraft, or by contacting your local FAA Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) or Manufacturing Inspection District Office (MIDO).

 

This listing, published on a semi-annual basis with updates provided electronically to FAA FSDOs and MIDOs, supersedes all previous listings. Questions or suggestions concerning this listing may be directed to the Airworthiness Programs Branch (AFS-610), (405) 954-6904, FAX (405) 954-4104, attention: Jim Jarvis.
