Note: We offer our "preview" plans on a USB stick-type drive (for a charge) as well as on our web store for anyone who creates a store account and registers their kit serial number on the store (all of which is free). If you are looking for only the USB plans, please click here to find them on our web store, where you can order them as a stand-alone item.

While there is no difference in cost when ordering the fuselage kit components that affect the canopy (you'll acxtually get the canopy in the finishing kit), we do need to know whether you're building a tip-up or slider canopy on your airplane, so we can ship you the correct fuselage parts.
In order to send you the correct spinner, we need you to let us know what propeller you plan to use. If you dont need a spinner from Van's because it is included with your propeller, choose "No spinnner" in the list below.
Please specify the engine you intend to instal below, so we can provide the correct engine cowl for your build.

Other engine suppliers produce a wide variety of engines that may or may not be physically compatible with parts and accessories used on Lycoming models.
To provide us the information we need, you must complete this ENGINE INDENTIFICATION section with items that describe your engine. Without this information we cannot accept or process your order. If you are installing an engine that is not compatible with Lycoming style mounts or cowl, you may delete these items for credit. The exact amount of the credit will be determined by Van’s.
It is the customer’s responsibility to provide accurate information. Van’s Aircraft, Inc. is not responsible for costs incurred replacing or returning incorrectly ordered parts.

Note: Preview plans are a required purchase before beginning construction. They preview plans contain important introductory and planning information which the builder needs to be aware of before starting on the first kit. Electronic plans, delivered on a small USB "thumb drive," may be purchased for that purpose. Theses are provided in a searchable, printable PDF format that can be viewed on a variety of devices.
Please provide any notes, details or requests that will help us understand and process your order. For example, if you'll be picking up from Van's yourself (in which case please review our will-call policies) or some other detail you want to make us aware of. Note that we do not allow additions to or deletions of items from kit orders. If you want to order additional items, please use our web store or give us a call and we can help place a separate order for you.
Note: Van's no longer charges a separate crating fee, as we've determined our costs are very close to identical regardless of how kits are packaged, shipped or handled.
Your kit serial number was assigned with the empennage kit. If you don't have one yet, just enter "NONE" in this field and we will assign you one. If you're not sure, we hope you'll look it up as it helps us process your order as quickly as possible. But if absolutely necessary you can tell us you forgot, and we will look for it by hand.
