Brief Description:  DAR Inspection for Airworthiness Certificate

Eventually, if you stick with it, through the frustration and redo, learning curves, etc. you get to the point where it's time for the DAR inspection. For me, this was Friday Aug 30, 2019. Vern Darley from Peachtree City, GA flew is RV-6A (which was built from variously collected parts) to CSG to inspect the plane. I spent several evenings prior removing all access panels, forward baggage floor, aft baggage floor and shelf, pilot seat ramp and floor, all external fairings on the and the VS/HS fairing, spinner and cowling. I applied torque seal to every nylock nut on a moving part.

Vern started by verifying the engine/prop controls for proper operations, looked over the FWF work, inspected the instrument panel, inspected all push tubes for torque, spent quite some time inspecting the HS and Fuse area, aileron and elevator push tube to bulkhead clearance, electric elevator trim tab operation, inspected the ELT installation, reviewed the airframe and engine log books for all required entries, and many other items. At the end of the inspection, Vern found the plane acceptable and issued the Special Airworthiness Certificate and discussed the Operating Limitations and Operations Area for Phase 1.

Now to put the plane back together and get me ready for first flight!
