Before you spend a lot of money apply for a build number at caa.
You will have to get the aircraft type accepted before it can be registered.
This might pose to be a big problem.

Unfortunately RM`s answer is the uncomfortable truth. You will be sitting stuck with an legally unflyable aeroplane. So that is how it is.............. :evil: Don`t you just lurf burocracy?

So what are the ins-n-outs of getting an aerie certified then? Sounds like it's a pain in the ass, but still would like to know! Anyone care to explain?

Not certified but type accepted.

They need design criterea and an engineering analysis that would include stress analysis on major components.

They want all that from the builder or the manufacturer of the kit or the original designer

OK then best thing to do is 're-design' the cri-cri call it something else then you can be that person (original designer). I think getting this thing passed CAA by trying to talk to the original designer in France who does not use the internet may be a problem! :) DARN!! !!! !!! !!!

Without wanting to question the considerable expertise in our CAA dept., is there anyone there that would be able to understand a stress analysis????

Considering his last post was in 2012, I would say launch aborted.
