How about the 100K inspection it will need every time a shopping cart dings it in the parking lot. Or you run over a curb.

I don't think Light-Sport Aircraft get 100K inspections.

It does if a shopping cart bends the tail it will have to be fixed. If it's not fixed you'll have a really expensive car that looks like a airplane with a dent in the back.

tadawson:
And the "Experimental" that is also clearly lettered on the side means that it did *NOT* pass much of one . . . . While I am sure that they anticipate getting a full type certificate for this aircraft, they apparently built the prototype under the same rules as the guy who builds a plane in his garage . . . .
I've been researching kit built airplanes for a while, please tell us which "rules" or "inspections" this aircraft did NOT pass. And why it would make it more or less safe to fly.

Experimental Airplanes are exempt from the "Annual Inspection " requirements found in 91.409
FAR 91.409 (c)(1) exempts experimentally certificated aircraft from the normal inspection rules.

Far Reference

Who cares, even if it does pass certification and gets a normal type certificate, the original areo car is normal category, no one bought it, they are crappy cars, and even worse airplanes! You can buy a nice 1980s Beech Bonanza for $120,000 and get a brand new Honda. for what that POS cost and have some real fun and reliable transportation, and have enough money left over to rent a car at your destination!

I know that. Is the basis of the experiemental category certification of amateur-built aircraft. What I want to know is the inspections that the aircraft did NOT pass as referenced above, and the resons on why the aircraft would be less safe than normally certified aircraft as suggested on the comment.

It is not so much a inspection as it is a certification process, that includes a large barrage of flight testing, destructive testing, survivability testing and in the end, the reason they have the experimental home built category is to stop people from using aircraft commercially that have not gone through this process, that process, by the way, can cost millions of dollars. it is not just that they are exempted from an annual inspection, they still have to have a condition inspection, it is just a matter of who can do the inspection. Safety is such a fickle thing, you can take every precaution known and then have something as small as a humming bird take you out, I have flown quite a few home built machines, even a lance air 4 with a Walter turbine, and you still have to wonder, did the guy who put this thing together drink beer the whole time?
