RV-10 Kits To Be Produced With Final-Size Holes Drilled

RV-10 Construction Just Got A LOT Easier

Van’s Aircraft has initiated the process of phasing in the production of final-size, matched-hole RV-10 parts. Until now, all parts for the RV-10 have been produced with slightly undersized holes, which the builder must up-size with a drill and then debur prior to assembly.

The company notes that, "We will be transitioning the RV-10 kit to final-sized holes, much like the RV-14 and RV-12iS kits. There is no increase in kit prices associated with this planned change.

We are excited to remove a portion of the initial work that builders need to perform on certain parts of the RV-10 airframe assembly with this change. Aircraft parts with final-size holes may be dimpled and then assembled right out of the box, after deburring the edges of each part as needed. This removes the need to first cleco the parts together, drill them to size in assembly, then disassemble and debur.

This manufacturing transition will take place over the next several months (we anticipate completing the transition sometime in early 2021). During the transition period, customers may receive some portion of their parts with final-sized holes and others without. Van’s will mark delivered kit parts to make the builder aware whether each part needs to be final-drilled and deburred, or not. We will also include instructions for the builder explaining how to identify which kit parts are/are not final-sized."
