Van’s Aircraft Announces “Matched-Hole” RV-8/8A Kit

If you've been enamored of the sleek RV-8 series, we have good news for you. After a thirteen-month project by Van’s engineering and prototype staff, a new kit for the RV-8 series combines the current matched-hole Standard Wing and Empennage kits with a brand-new Standard Fuselage Kit, bringing the RV-8/8A into the same world already enjoyed by RV-7/7A, RV-9/9A and RV-10 builders.

Along the way, the Standard Fuselage kit was greatly simplified, parts count reduced and overall manufacturing accuracy improved. The plans are all-new computer generated pages, with many new exploded and detail views. The builder’s manual was completely re-written, based on actual construction in Van’s prototype shop.

Van’s estimates that these improvements will reduce building times by 40% for the fuselage and 15-20% overall.

Naturally, one might think that with an improvement of this magnitude, builders can expect an increased price.

Right?

Not this time.

The new RV-8/8A matched-hole Standard Fuselage kit is priced exactly the same as the kit it replaces. Buyers who placed their orders at Oshkosh (and thereafter) will receive the matched-hole kit at no extra cost.
