RV-3, RV-4 and RV-6 Parts Availability

As a result of the announcement late last year regarding RV-3, RV-4 and RV-6 kits, we have received a number of kit orders for these models which are presently in the process of being filled. Due to the demand, we have all but depleted our inventory of parts for these models. We are currently evaluating and scheduling our next production runs to replenish our RV-3, 4 and 6 parts inventory. We expect to have them available by mid-April at the earliest. We regret the delay and hope it does not unduly slow your progress.

We are now required to collect sales tax on all parts and kit orders from our customers who are receiving shipments within the state of Georgia. This includes engines and propellers purchased from Van’s Aircraft and drop shipped by our OEM suppliers. Since the tax amount varies based upon the county of the shipping address, the tax cannot automatically be applied during checkout for online orders. Therefore, the tax will be computed and included as part of the invoice total, subject to our payment policy prior to shipment. If you are a business and have a Tax Exempt permit, please send us a copy of your permit with your builder’s number to so we may attach it to your account.

Congratulations to David Porter
