Preview Plans Set

The First Step


Available for all RVs, except the RV-10, RV-12, and RV-14

It's time to start on your RV! The preview plans set is the first step in the actual construction project. Either before you purchase your first kit, or with it, you must order the Preview Plans Set. This contains the complete drawings for the entire airplane and a complete builder’s manual. In fact the first few sections of the manual, explaining tools, workshop practice, plans reading, etc. are provided ONLY in the Preview Plans Set (you will get full-sized plans and updated sections of the manual with each sub-kit, see Plans/Manual for more information). Preview Plans have been reduced to 11"x17", and come in an attractive three-ring binder with our Accessories Catalog. They are easy to carry along on trips, or open on a desktop. The Preview Plans give the builder a "big picture" view of the entire construction of the aircraft.

There is a $5.00 flat rate shipping charge for Preview Plans shipped within the Continental United States via UPS/FedEX GROUND ONLY. For shipping outside of the Continental United States and other requested types of shipping there will be an additional shipping charge to the customer.

For your information: It actually costs more to ship a "Preview Plans Set" via the United States Postal Service (USPS) within the Continental United States than it does to ship via UPS/FedEX GROUND. There are no shipping costs if Preview Plans are purchased and shipped with your Empennage Kit.
