Kit Prices and Lead Times

Below you will find the current prices and the approximate availability lead times of our aircraft kits as well as other items with longer lead times such as engines and propellers. Note that preview plans must be ordered with or before purchase of the first kit. The “kit total” price listed includes the empennage, wing, fuselage and finishing kits. For the RV-12iS model only, the “kit total” price listed also includes the powerplant and avionics kits. The QuickBuild price includes the empennage kit, QB wing/fuselage components, and the finishing kit.  The prices below (except preview plans) are for will-call pickup from Van’s, and do not include crating or shipping charges. Please visit the Order a Kit page to access our kit order forms. Various aspects of the business and industry can affect pricing and availability; while we work hard to make things predictable for you, prices and lead times are subject to change at any time and without notice.

Builders of RV-3, RV-4 and RV-6 kits should read the Van’s Aircraft letter published in December, 2017 regarding production timing, lead times and prices for those kits.

RV Kit Prices

We maintain current prices here for your reference. Prices in effect at the time of order and deposit will be reflected on your invoice. Customer-initiated delays may require price adjustment if kit prices have changed since initial price was established.

RV Kit Lead Times

Fuselage-Only and Wing-Only QuickBuild customers may experience extended lead times due to logistics in delivering ‘airframe specific’ parts to our QB assembly facility in the Philippines. Lead times may also vary depending on our current stock and/or component stock available in the Philippines. Since containers are shipped every 2-3 months, it is possible that orders placed only days apart could have significantly different lead times. Van’s Kit team can supply information on approximate lead times relative to when an order is placed, so please call us with your questions.
