My father law has passed recently and has
Left experimental planes behind. We are having issues on selling them as we don’t know where to start. I think he was almost finished with them but who know. Does anyone know where I need to start? I figured they probably should be inspected? I live in Jacksonville FL does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

Hey Gary!...I agree with Keith, 1st stop is your dad's local EAA  ( That's Experimental Aircraft Association) chapter. I can't help but wonder about his friends and  ' flying buddies ', seems they would have info on his projects and possibly could advise you in some ways. Obviously you will want to have a good idea of the value of individual components etc.  Very sorry for your loss, Good luck!

Thank you so much!

 I’d start by contacting the nearest EAA chapter (experimental aircraft association). They’ll be able to take a look at the planes and give you an idea of value. They’ll also know of local folks who would be interested in purchasing.
