I don’t want to spoil your enthusiasm of having the first SR20 being certified outside of the US. I think the Dutch guy named Bakema has already got a Dutch call sign. At least this is what he’s stated on his web page.
Having a registration number, and actually being able to fly the plane with that number are two different things. We reserved VH-CRF some time ago, and you can register a plane without a type certificate, but you cannot get an airworthiness certificate unless the design has a type certificate. And without an airworthiness certificate, you can’t fly it, at least not without major restrictions.
But hey, who cares, you’re getting your plane soon and this is a much bigger satisfaction than having the first type cert abroad
Absolutely, it’s actually more exciting for Cirrus Design to get this certification. Expect to see a press release from them.
Can you sleep at night, Clyde?
Always. Especially after a good day’s flying.
P.S. what is this members only tab on the home page?
Wait and see. Right now it does nothing.
