Oil replacement

Hi Mooniacs,
Is it permissible for an aircraft owner to change oil on his aircraft when oil change is due?
Thank you in advance.

If you can do it yourself why not. Don't think the caa needs to be notified of a 50hr oil change. Or am I mistaken?

Within the maintenance manual is a section on scheduled maintenance (including 50 hour routine inspections), therefore, scheduled by the manufacturer and making it a requirement to have this done by an AMO and certified within the logbooks.
