Wanted urgently: A DAR-T that is prepared to help by Ross[_3_]
I have purchased a sailplane in the US and am struggling with German authorities to get it certified due to their requirements. The aircraft in question hasn't flown for 8 years and is not airworthy and I require a statement from a DAR-T saying just that. Is there anyone that can help me on this?
