Airworthiness Inspection

The day has finally come.  It is inspection day. 

I had a couple of FAA Inspectors come down from Fargo to do my final airworthiness inspection.  A bit overwhelming and stressful day.

But after a thorough check and getting all paperwork sorted through,  I was issued my airworthiness certificate. 

WOW, what a feeling to have this accomplished.  Been such a long 4 plus years on this build and to finally be able to call it an actual airplane has to be the best feeling so far.  I am sure the first flight will be way more but this is awesome so far. 

Weather permitting and some final inspections, my first flight is planned for this weekend.   

Now I am nervous.
