    I think askacfi.com has a good answer already to my question. I happen to find it under this title “Where is the source for the “W” in A.R.R.O.W?”. In 100 words or less I read it as: FAR 91.9 “must have approved flight manual” which would include/require W/B. Also FAR 43.5(c) “Cant return to service without revising operating limitations or flight data….after an alteration or repair that results in a change…”. I think i am happy again. Thanks
