First Condition Inspection (Annual) of Van’s RV-10 N241VP – DONE

I customized my Condition Inspection checklist based on Walt’s (EXP Aircraft Services LLC) checklist. I also added some frequently needed documents/information to the end of my document. Here is a link to my checklist

As with building, there was a learning curve this year that added a good amount of extra time and effort. Next year I think the Condition Inspection portion will be around 25 hours.
