Once your inspector completes and signs your Form B, Cat 1 & 3 pilots can commence test flying and a Certificate of Design and Construction will be issued.
Note both Cat 2A & 2B require a Flight Authorisation issued by the LMC (large model controller) prior to ANY test flights!
Depending on which category your project falls into will determine the flight test requirements
- Cat 1 & 3 require 5 flights
- Cat 2A requires 1 hour
- Cat 2B a total of 1.5 hours
Once the test flights are successfully completed and lodged on Form C the Permit To Fly is issued and you are MFNZ certified to fly your aircraft at events, club meetings and the likes.
