How much time on the turbine and when was the last service?
Flight time and amount of fuel on board?
Was this a straight conversion from a new kit or was it EDF prior?
Any chance you may be at E-Jets in Columbus?
pics of the inside and installs

Nice combo but I wouldn't be able to get waiver with a 10lb jet. How unfortunate.

I didn't think that mattered I didn't think it had to even be turbine for the flying portion just a high speed airplane then prove you can operate a turbine . I know with a heli turbine waiver you cant use a turbine heli because you don't have the waiver yet. I think a lot depends on who is doing your sign off.

Yea, around Louisville area we have a good bunch of jet jockeys and per the AMA requirements the plane must weight more than 12lbs dry. They fly you on a buddy box till they cut the cord. It all depends on who you have and how well you demonstrate proficiency.

Needs to be a turbine atleast 12# rule change might be able to slide on the 12# check with a cd waiver holder it would be real close with full fuel or just add some weight under the fuel tanks to make 12#

I got my waiver flying the exact same jet setup. I guess it depends on who is signing you off. The weight of the plane wasn't even discussed.

16oz of fuel will weigh just over 1lb. So 3 tanks will make all up weight 13.
You are good with the 12# waiver min
