12 year rule and Part 91 personal ships (again)

09-12-2013 05:03:35

Can anyone give a couple reliable printed references (other than well intentioned but not too valuable forum chatter).
Specifically concerned about legality of flying R-22 with AI Airworthiness sign off but only specifically designated timed out components listed in Robinson RH22 MM page 3.2 replaced...not complete overhaul at 12 years, only at 2200 hours.

Not concerned with Insurance or liability issues.
Primarily FAA Ramp Check type legality issues.

Example:
Legality of flying in 2013 a 1999 year of manufacture R-22 that has TTSN of 1700 hours and current Annual sign off ???

Minimum requirements for part 91 operations:

1. Annual inspection in accordance with 43 appendix D, and other items listed in part 43.15(b) and (c).

2. Retirement life parts must meet requirements in airworthiness limitations section of the maintenance manual (FAA approved page). See page 3.3 in link below:

3. AD's must be complied with.
