    If I can replace every part on that airplane at one time or another, why can't I do it all at once? I can get STC'd fuselage, gear, wings, tail feathers, etc....all the parts of a cub are reproduced . It's total bs as far as I'm concerned. Just another fed that has way more time and authority than brains. I don't see why they think this is even necessary. There hasn't been any problems from airplanes that have had pretty much all their parts replaced at one time or another. It's just more bureaucratic BS.

      At some point they get involved. I had a PA-11 restored in 2001-2 and they observed many repairs and mods. Finally there was a Conformity Inspection and new paperwork issued. I guess that was done to confirm airworthiness and conformity to the approved data used.

        Thanks for posting this - it was news to me.
        So much for replacing the fuselage on my PA-11.
        it was a good thought while it lasted.

          If you have registered paperwork and other parts of the plane, go right ahead. They are not going on an enforcement hunt

              If the wings, tail, or landing gear are ok then no worries. So far all it takes is one of them to be still airworthy as far as I've heard.

                  JimC is the PA-11's fuselage damaged or just in need of replacement due to age? Mine was worn but repairable when done 17 yrs ago. As I mentioned the FAA inspectors followed the whole process and the PMI issued a new cert when done. They knew it was unairworthy before I bought it (I did not) but due to circumstances and previous mechanic sign offs let it go until I and my mechanic exposed and confirmed the suspected issues. Never was airworthy for many years yet the records indicated otherwise.

                    Age.
                    I'd like to give it to my grandchildren in good enough shape that I won't have to worry about its structural integrity when they are my age.
