§21.191   Experimental certificates - cert info link

Experimental certificates are issued for the following purposes:

(g) Operating amateur-built aircraft. Operating an aircraft the major portion of which has been fabricated and assembled by persons who undertook the construction project solely for their own education or recreation.

Been reading more up on the types of Experimental Airworthiness Certifications here:


I am seeking the type: (g) under Experimental

§21.191   Experimental certificates.

(g) Operating amateur-built aircraft. Operating an aircraft the major portion of which has been fabricated and assembled by persons who undertook the construction project solely for their own education or recreation. 


The the type (h) and (i), which you can choose to build under, have different requirements, that seem to be more in line with what you have been suggesting. They require you to follow the kit manufactures plans. Almost no one builds under these, since they are so restrictive. These are mostly what the commercial kit builders have to use.

I started my project with a kit and have used the plans a lot for its construction, but from what I have been told, there is no requirement to do so.
I think I understand the dilemma, its much easier to bless an aircraft when its a proven kit and the builder follows the plans exactly and has factory backing for any modifications.
I can't imagine what a DAR would do if the plane was completely designed, fabricated, and assembled by an amateur, but the FAA supports them getting an Airworthiness just the same.

Experimental Amateur Built - this is the class of aircraft my Zenith CH 750 STOL will be registered and built under.

FAA Amature Built Aircraft

  2. Aircraft Registration Application, AC Form 8050-1
  3. Submit $5 fee made out to the Federal Aviation Administration
  4. If more than 50% of your amateur-built aircraft was built from a kit (prefabricated parts), you must also include a kit bill of sale from the kit manufacturer.

Just wanted to let everyone know what I found out from talking with the FAA registration today ( got through in 5 minutes and talked to an actual human, amazing I know).
Good news is, what I have started is exactly what we need to do.
  1. Affidavit of Ownership for Experimental Aircraft, AC Form 8050-88 - John Greiner (new owner) fills this one out and submits.
  2. Aircraft Registration Application, AC Form 8050-1 - John Greiner (new owner) fills this one out and submits.
  3. Submit $5 fee made out to the Federal Aviation Administration. John Greiner (new owner) pays this, of course.
  4. If more than 50% of your amateur-built aircraft was built from a kit (prefabricated parts), you must also include a kit bill of sale from the kit manufacturer. A regular Aircraft Bill of Sale, AC Form 8050-2 (PDF) is acceptable if the word 'Aircraft' has been marked through and the word 'Kit' entered.
    • Zenith (original kit manufacture) will send me the 8050-2 (or equivalent) with the previous owner's permission.
    • Original Owner(s) will sign another 8050-2 showing he transfers ownership to you, the new owner.
    • Both 8052-2's are mailed in, along with items 1,2,and 3.
