Local Services

My name is Arnold Holmes and I am a Designated Airworthiness Representative located in Leesburg FL.  I kindly ask that you share my information with your membership.  I conduct airworthiness certifications for the following types of aircraft:

  1. Experimental Amateur Built, E-AB(code 46)
  2. Experimental Light Sport, E-LSA (code 47)
  3. Special Light Sport, S-LSA (code 48)

I have been an EAA member since the mid 80's, have built more than 10 aircraft and also work as an IA operating my own maintenance facility located at the Leesburg Int'l Airport (KLEE).  I bring many years of experience to my job as a DAR and consider myself  a hardcore homebuilder.  Please let your members know that I am available on short notice and am always willing to help with any questions they may have concerning the certification of their homebuilt aircraft.


Airworthiness Cert on E-AB, E-LSA is $650.00 plus .50 per mile travel.  Jobs that require entire day will be billed at $750.00 per day plus all expenses.

Production Flight cert and Airworthiness on S-LSA is $500.00 per cert plus .50 per mile.

You will not find another DAR that is as accessible as I am.  I answer the phone when you call, I return emails quickly and am easy to work with. Mr. Holmes can be reached at his email address at Phone number is 352-617-2029.

Thank you

Arnold Holmes
