  2. I canot believe the BS being written here, the aircraft had a major defect and can only be repaired IAW manufactures procedures .as per usual here everybody has an opinion about illegal repairs an then complain about the authorities wanting to inflict more regulations .l do know the facts because i am the engineer who said the aircraft could not be flown facts which i will not share on a forum with people in whos aircraft i would not fly in if they are maintained by the metods descibed Mick W
  3. You only need a condition report if the aircraft is being sold. if only an annual inspection and only used for private operations you may do it on your level one authority if you are confident to carry out the maintenance a level 2 is only required if used for hire and reward Mick W
