For example, I am about to fit a new RPM gauge to my Sporty. Mine has the RPM and the MAP right over on the right side - in front of the Pax. Trouble is, I have an inflight adjustable prop, and so RPM becomes something I need to keep an eye on.
SO... in order for me to fit a new one, or even relocate the existing, (to Pilot's side) I have to gain a Letter of Authority from Evektor and have it done by a certified LAME.
I have the RPM gauge on the way, and the LOA with it - but what a pain. It's just an RPM gauge!! It's not like I am reshaping the wings!
Happy to get the LAME To fit etc, but why the rest of the nonsense is beyond me!
Hi jfleming, It certainly can be a pain trying to navigate the rules and regs as everyone seems to interpret them slightly different. I think the government wants it that way. Sounds like you seem to have it worked out, good for you.
I do have a question for you, can I ask how long it took for Evektor to issue the LOA to you and was there a fee at all? I'm researching LSA manufacturers and the issuance of LOA's.
