Empennage Kit Arrived Today

Very exciting day. The first part of my kit arrived today. The empennage kit contains the vertical stabilizer/rudder, the horizontal stabilizer/elevator, and the tail cone. I uncrated the kit and Remy helped me inventoried the hundreds of parts. Four items were back-ordered and one item was missing. All five parts are for later phases of the empennage build. I emailed Van’s and I’m certain they’ll ship them to me long before I need them.

Time: 6 hours

Notwithstanding the one missing part, The quality of the crating is impressive. Everything arrived undamaged. Shout out to Van’s shipping department.
