Re: N169W


Oh in reading the registration page on the FAA website the airworthiness is listed as expired, not terminated or other language that would signify it was turned in.

It's not that the airworthiness expired, but that someone specifically asked that it be cancelled. The FAA is usually (eventually -- it can take months) flexible about this, especially if you can get that bill of sale.

I havent though about that, i have contacted the previous owner, mostly to get background, but also knowing ill need bill of sale. I was thinking certified aircraft. Where the airworthiness doesn't expire. Register and go... ill have to look into this.

IMO the best approach is to call it by a new model name (something like: Quickie model Q2A, serial number 1), then register it as a new homebuilt replica Q2 as built from parts. If you try to use the original QAC serial number it may become complicated since it has already been registered. FSDO can confirm this if you can find a DAR that is reasonably easy to work with.

That's a 1985 Q2.  It was FAA deregistered on 11/15/2012.  That's going to be a problem.  I'd suggest you talk to your local fsdo to see if you can re-register it somehow.

So today was the day, we moved 169W from behind my cousins garage into my hanger. I got a better look at what im working with. Im excited but not overly so. Alot of work ahead. So far from what i see its solid, but there areas of concern, some delam on corner of elevator, delam on rear wing inboard of aileron, basically the filet between the aileron and fuselage. The tail has been modified and has a single spring tail wheel mount, the  rudder has obviously been modified and didnt survive the trip intact. Looks like the bottom mount has broken.
My plans are complete disassembly, sand down complete fuselage mostly using straight line sander, make sure she has good bones. Fingers crossed that i can work with whats there.
