N25DV is Home

Talk about airplanes! At last count, there are 39 (and growing) FAA certificated S-LSA (special light sport aircraft). These are factory-built ready to fly airplanes. If you can't afford a factory-built LSA, consider buying an E-LSA kit (experimental LSA - up to 99% complete).

N25DV is Home

Postby David » Thu Mar 26, 2015 6:58 pm

My good friend, Mark B was kind enough to fly the RV12 to Maine on short notice when we finally got a good day,

Mark had a great day to fly on Tue, it was cool, low winds, and great visiblity. A few pics of Mark arriving to KBST before tucking her in for the night in the Hanger.

Thanks again to Mark B for bring 25DV up with short notice. :D

The only gotcha might be insurance. My insurance requires pilots to be named on the policy, or have 300hrs total and 25hrs in type to be covered, IIRC.

My insurance policy says any qualified pilot with 10 hours in make & model.
It's an issue. For example, my post annual test flight with Paul.
Even though Paul has tremendously more experience than I,
he did not have 10 hours in my make and model. Thus uninsured on my policy.

I flew the test flight with Paul, stressing that I was pilot in command at all times,
although in an actual emergency I might request his assistance.

It was easy for me, Mark has a RV12 and was locate where my RV12 was and we are insured with the same company. I just called and added him to my policy. (no increase in rates :D )

I have a non-owned policy for when I fly other peoples airplanes. It is tied to my commercial policy, and is different from a renters policy.

Richard, I'm now up to 9.8 hours logged in your make and model, so still can't be PIC. Guess I should have stretched that test flight a couple of tenths!
