Default Anyone gotten a -12iS kit recently, or getting one soon?

Care to share your builder & order number, and when it went to crating?

I’ve got the first four -12iS kits on order, but my order page has no crating estimates, even though the tail kit is 6 weeks past the “lead time” estimate as of Oshkosh ’21, when I ordered it. If enough people share this info, those of us waiting will be able to see the queue progress over time.

(I'm builder #121426, if that helps anyone)

Thanks!

I ordered my tail kit end of April, it was shipped in September.

My wing kit was ordered first week of May, and had a crate date in early November on the order ack. It has not entered the crating stage yet.

Thanks, Joe - hope your building’s going well! I just double-checked: none of my order acknowledgements have an estimated crating date, so they technically haven’t let me down yet

Fuse kit ordered in March. Got notice early this fall that it was due for crating. Now they have no ship date and no date by which they will estimate a ship date. It appears Vans is waiting on parts from suppliers who are unable to give delivery dates.
