Every good mechanic who knows the type should be able to do a basic mechanical and AD check competently.
But what about avionics? Most mechanics don’t fly, and know little about instruments.
Then you get the European stuff especially for IFR eg the AFMS required to legally fly GPS approaches. This is much more obscure and almost nobody (off EuroGA ) knows about it.
How about throwing together a checklist?
FLY-IN BRIEFING NOTES – VERY IMPORTANT FOR ALL TO READ
In short, the airport is OK for us to go there but it took a lot of negotiation.
The aeroclub, who originally said it’s fine, later said they don’t want to get involved. Also it took weeks to establish / re-establish contact with them. Finally, after weeks, we were able to establish contact with the airport administration itself.
Aviathor and StevenR have done a huge amount of work sorting this out.
Earlier, Dublinpilot produced this, and this was posted here some time ago.
