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
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
Van’s estimates that these improvements will
reduce building times by 40% for the fuselage and 15-20%
Naturally, one might think that with an improvement of this
magnitude, builders can expect an increased price.
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.
