Today, I submitted the Letter of Intent to the Minister’s Delegates – Recreational Aviation or the MD-RA. The MD-RA is an authority program external to Transport Canada and are responsible for amateur-built aircraft. A file will be started for my project and I will be assigned an inspector who will visit my workshop on request to perform mandatory inspections. The inspections include pre-cover inspections, that is, before the skins go on and the final inspection. The MD-RA will also be responsible for issuing the first Special Certificate of Airworthiness.
