DA-42 Chapter 5 Items

Post by Jonathanf4 »

Hello All,

Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe!

Considering purchasing used DA-42 and question came up around Chapter 5 life limit items. Are they mandatory or recommendations per the FAA?

Any recommendations on shop/mechanic located in the Midwest (Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana) to do a Pre-buy?

Thanks.

I don't know if he could fly up from Dallas, but Dave Seastead would be amazing for it. Dseastead@verizon.net

FAA Chapter 5 is only the manufacturer’s recommendations whereas Chapter 4 is mandatory.
