    How to register a gyroplane

    Made this a sticky as it is so helpful!

    I'm going through this process now and copied most of this from what Chris Toves posted and then I called the FAA to learn what is really needed so I'm sharing what I've learned so far..

    1) Reserve a N# for it here. http://aircraft.faa.gov/e.gov/NN/reserve.aspx You need this before you can fill out the forms below.

    2) Once your N# as been reserved (you will receive a conformation letter) you can order one (not two) data plates. The FAA does not want a data plate mailed to them. They only want you to fill out the form 8050-88 below with the same information with the exact name of the builder matching your data plate. I've only now using these folks and cannot recommend them yet. http://www.engravers.net/dataplates.html

    3) You meed to fill out two forms (see attachments below for the forms):

    Okay....I realize I am late to the dance since the original post was made a year ago. But, is the builder's log with pictures still a requirement ? It was my understanding that by submitting the signed document (I don't recall now which number) affirming the builder built at least 51%, no builder's log with pictures was required.

    Yes I believe they are at least all the folks that have submitted them in the last few months that I know have submitted photo logs Steve.

    John,

    Thanks for the reply. When I had each of my gyros blessed off by the FAA, I did not need to submit a builders lot with progress pictures. All I did was submit the form affirming I build at least 51% and also submitted pictures of the completed gyros from every angle. Maybe every FSDO handles it differently ?

    Steve
