Cessna 207 Nairobi FAA Inspection Success!!!
|THIS IS THE CERTIFICATE WE'VE BEEN WAITING|
OVER 2 YEARS FOR!!! THANK YOU LORD!!!
...the rest of the story...
|02 July Flight from Gabon to Kenya for the Inspection |
of our Cessna 207... FINALLY! We purchased this aircraft
in Zambia in 2020... now, 2 and a half years later, after LOTS
of read tape and challenges, the inspection was happening!
|This was actually my FIRST time to be with this|
aircraft! I've been blessed by great friends who have
been volunteering to help out (thank you Dan S.,
Emma L., and the whole AIM AIR team!)
(Okay, okay... no more selfies for the rest of this blog...)
|The AIM AIR guys have really prepared the aircraft well-|
my new friend, Cosmos, and I spent time cleaning and
polishing so it looked sharp for the FAA inspector.
|Finally, the day came- 07 July. There was a delay due to visa|
issues, and then, the day prior, we heard of possible demonstrations
in Nairobi! We prayed harder...
|Praise God, the demonstrations in town did not impact|
the FAA inspector arriving from his hotel (he's seated).
He was very kind and helpful. He reviewed log books
and only minor changes were needed in our documents.
|Most of the inspection focuses on the paperwork, but there|
is a need to actually look at the aircraft... so we were
happy to have it all cleaned up and purty.
|After about 3 hours of inspection, our FAA representative|
announced that all was in order, he had John H., the AIM AIR
director of maintenance, and myself sign the inspection report,
then he presented me with the Airworthiness Certificate!!!
Thanks you for your prayers and encouragement on this long journey! There were days of frustration and challenges that made me wonder if this event would ever happen.
