I ordered all kits 7/14/21. Received an email a couple days ago saying empennage was delayed until May 30 2022 - Jun 20 2022. Pushed it out another month basically from the previous dates quoted. In the meantime I bought a prop strike IO-540 to rebuild. Yeah, kinda backwards I know...

My empennage kit has shipped. The status website says items on back order.

Can anyone with a recently received kit chime in with what items they may have had backordered? Just curious to hear what might be missing from the initial shipment. Canít wait to start inventory!

I received an RV-9 empennage kit Saturday. The only back ordered item was the vertical stabilizer spar.

Also received my -9 empennage kit yesterday. Missing the vertical stab spar (VS-803PP, though I did get a nice handwritten sticky note saying Ďadd VS-803PP x1í) and one hardware bag. Nothing on the packing list to indicate those are backordered vs just missing, but pretty complete otherwise.

Is it two crates because, obviously, the back ordered part will be in a separate shipment, or is it two crates and then a third with backordered parts?

I emailed and was told to two crates is the new normal for RV 10 empennage.

I’m not certain but I’m inferring that a trailing edge wedge is the backordered part.

Additionally my bill of lading shows two crates.

Received one of the two crates for the -10 empennage. Other was mis-shipped someplace else. Hopefully the find it soon.
The missing crate contains at least the Main Spar for the Vert Stab, as well as the rear spar caps.
Of course the rudder needs the trailing edge, which i on back-order.
I had started working on the wings, which I received a couple of weeks ago, and was pleased when I heard the empennage was coming, so I could work on simpler things to start. Guess I will get to wait a while longer...

Received my two empennage crates yesterday. Both were in great shape, Old Dominion did an amazing job getting the boxes across the country.

Inventory complete, nearly perfect packing job by the Vans team. It took 10.5 months but now the fun begins!
