Van’s began taking orders for RV-12 Powerplant Kits at about 3:30pm on Tuesday, August 11, 2009. By Tuesday evening, we had received orders for all of the engines that we had in stock (25). An additional 25 engines are scheduled to arrive at Van’s shortly.
We will be shipping Powerplant Kits to customers based on the sequence in which the orders were received and in as timely a manner as possible. (see note below). The engine itself is only one of 60 components in the Powerplant Kit. While we do not anticipate significant delays, logistics may cause variations in estimated delivery times.
We anticipate being able to keep a steady flow of engines from Rotax to Van’s.They should arrive so as not to drastically disrupt delivery of engines to our customers.
Thanks for your support!
Note: Shipping priority will be given to customers who have already received their Empennage, Wing, Fuselage and Finish Kits (Receipt of Avionics Kit is not necessary to receive shipping priority).
