Questions and answers regarding owner-produced parts


Q9: What happens to the owner-produced part on the aircraft if the original owner sells the aircraft?
A9: Unless the part is no longer airworthy, the original owner-produced part stays on the aircraft.

I hope that I spread some light on the murky subject of owner-produced parts so that the next time, instead of saying to the owner of a broken aircraft, "Sure, ’I’ can make that part," you will now say "Sure, ’WE’ can make that part."
