Some unsolicited reviews:

I have watched the How to License your Homebuilt Aircraft twice.

My compliments...the clouds have parted and I can now see the path I need to take to license my 701 and get my Repairman Certificate.
I thought the video was very clear and concise.  I was watching it on my computer and couldn't wait for it to end, no offense, so I could hop on the FAA and EAA websites.
I've already been playing around with the 8050-88!

I cannot wait until Monday to call the Orlando FSDO and really sound like I may know what I'm talking about!

Again, thanks for the video!  Job well done!


I received the DVD on Monday and watched it immediately.

I found the DVD to be concise and clear.  I am ready to license my homebuilt (Sonex) and had already researched the information.  However, the DVD helped clarify the proper sequence of steps to be taken.

I think the DVD will be an excellent tool for homebuilders.


I long for the good old days when I could concentrate on one piece or 
section  of construction and then clear off the bench and start another. I  guess
thats why I was dreading the thought of having to figure out the maze of 
paperwork ahead to get this project finished.
It was easy though. I just sat in front of my T.V. with a paper and  pencil
and in a little over an hour had a timeline set and in the  proper order of
everything needed to do with instructions on all forms. This was  a big help for
the administratively challenged such as I.  I can reference back to  the DVD
anytime for help. This was perfect timing for me.     How to License your Homebuilt  Aircraft
its by Jon Croke a fellow 701 builder and is very good investment when 
you're up to your neck in building and are dreading the paperwork.
