RE: Aircraft Mechanic.
Regarding the Homebuilt aspect. They are correct that if you do most of the work, then you don't need to be an A&P to work on it. The important thing to remember in building is to take pictures during the building process. Document everything. To get an Airworthiness Certificate, they will want a lot of information. Without it, plan on a good struggle to get that certificate :)
