Fuselage Ship Date

I received the letter from Van’s Aircraft giving me the date the will ship my fuselage out, or the week of possible shipping! The week of July 28th 2014 is my week! That should put it here the week after OshKosh, where my motivation to build will be at an all time high! 🙂


Fuselage Ordered!

I ordered the the RV-8 fuselage yesterday morning. I kept the order completely stock except I added one item and deleted two others. The item I added was the rear passenger rudder pedals. The two items I deleted were the inflight adjustable forward rudder pedals and went for the ground only adjustable ones. I also deleted the fuel selector valve since I’m gonna go with the Andair brand. I was told to expect a 8 week build time for the kit and I’m guessing a week delivery time. That should put it for a delivery sometime right after I get back from OshKosh. That will be some serious motivation for building and I’m hoping my son Chandler will be here to help me get that kit started.
