Bill of sale

5 posts in this topic

Posted

Did Avid give you a bill of sale when you bought your kit from them?

I'm using the EAA's booklet that tells you how to get your aircraft airworthy.  It says that you need an original Bill of sale from the manufacturer, and any other kit owners along the way, to form a complete owner history.

The Original owner of my kit kept great records, but no Bill of sale from Avid.  I'm really wondering if they gave him a normal Bill of sale?  He gave me the invoice, but the booklet says an invoice is not a bill of sale.

Can you guys give me some advice here?

 

Thanks,

Ron

I think that only applies if the original company is still in business, you may have to check the box that says built not from a kit, Kitfox has a form how to do this, on the early models 1,2,3, because the Denny aerocraft and sky star company no longer exists,

Before I purchased my model II, I ordered the paper trail (history) from the FAA. There was one document in the packet, I believe from the second owner of the kit, stating there was no bill of sale passed to him from the original owner.  Everything went through alright.

Actually, I think [old] Airdale Aircraft did provide one to the original owner of my Avid+ but it's been a while since I looked thru the paperwork. In any event, Invoices only for my Avid Mk-IV and all four of my KF's. If the Co. is no longer operational I see no reason why you couldn't draft and submit a letter similar to what Kitfox Aircraft recommends for the defunct Skystar and Denney Aerocraft orphans. Kitfox 'No Bill of Sale' Letter to the FAA

Thanks guys, that helps...

I'm going to use the invoice as a bill of sale, due to Avid going out of business.  Then I will have the P.O. Fill out a 8050-2 showing the sale to me.

What a pain!  I understand the need for this once it is an aircraft, but not for a kit!

 

Thanks again,

Ron
