Unread post by Airscrewed » Sun Mar 15, 2015 3:09 pm

I am just completing replacing a Rotax engine with a Continental engine. I believe that I nedd to complete a Major Modification document as part of thr re-registration process. I have not been able to locate such document on the CAA website. Can anyone advise please.

CATS44 wrote:44.01.10 MODIFICATIONS
1. Form
The appropriate sections in Form XYZ1, must be completed in their entirety before the application for modification is submitted to the Director, or the organisation designated for the purpose in terms of Part 149, as the case may be, with the applicable fee as described in Part 187 of these Regulations. All supporting documentation as required by the form must accompany the application.

1 This form is yet to be created.
Seems like the form may not be available. Try contacting NTCA dept directly. Probably best not to mention that the work is already done, as the application for a major mod must be done prior to making the modification...

:twisted: see if you can keep up :twisted:

I seem to remember that someone at RAASA (Willem?) said that they could now handle major mods directly, rather than going through CAA - so contact them first, may be a bit easier.

Can't find the post that mentioned RAASA. Maybe I am imagining things. Here are two recent engine changes - perhaps Wille/Dale can offer advice:
