Can an annual inspection be signed off without the owner providing a registration certificate?
Airworthiness is not required for an annual inspection to be signed off. The IA performs the inspection; he/she doesn't necessarily return it to service.Well they are determining the "Airworthiness" of the aircraft. What paperwork is required to be on board for the aircraft to be "Airworthy"
Yes, that is called signing off an annual "with discrepencies".Could the I.A. just sign off the annual and make another log entry for the missing registration?? Then any A&P could sign off that item when the registration certificate is obtained and return the a/c to service. A little C.Y.A. for the I.A. and everyone is happy.
