Question about 51% rule

Recommended Posts

I have a question regarding the 51% rule. Would buying an existing project with, lets say the tub on wheels but no wings or canard, affect the qualification of the rule?

What is it, after all the discussions we've had here and on other mailing lists regarding this issue, that you think the non-existant 51% rule (in actuality, the "major portion rule") means?

 

If you study the FAA's interpretation of that question, you'll have your answer.

Thanks!

To summarize Marc's thoughts. :)

 

The MAJORITY (51%) of the plane must be built for educational or enternainment purposes. It says nothing about being done by a single person. For example an EAA chapter of 20 guys could build a plane with each doing 5% percent of the work.

 

John's wiki is starting to sound like a good idea. Marc's repeated posts of the same topics could fill it!
