The Repairman Certificate is a qualification granted to builders of experimental aircraft in the US that enables them to inspect and maintain their own aircraft.
Carlow Institute of Technology, with whom ILAS have a close association, are interested in engaging the services of Brian and Carol Carpenter of Rainbow Aviation Services to give a 3-day Repairman Course at the institute and make it available to ILAS members.
Their course is acceptable to the FAA as a means of demonstrating the required skills and knowledge for the Repairman Certificate. The certificate itself is only available to US residents but the FAA imprimatur gives us confidence that this is a well-designed and well-delivered training course of substantial value to Irish permit aircraft owners.
ILAS is interested in gauging demand for this course from our members with a view to taking up this invitation and providing the course. Costs and dates will be determined based on the numbers expressing interest.
If you are interested in doing this course, Please email Charles O'Shea asking to be added to his list of interested persons .
