You look like a proud dad in the delivery room Probably just as stressful too!
You are moving along nicely. Looking good man.

Default Horizontal Stabilizer Complete

Hi all. I am a little late with this post on VAF: We finished the Horizontal Stabilizer on 9 January 2018. I am growing increasingly pleased with the Van's RV-14A kit. Documentation is fantastic. Parts quality is impeccable. Design for Manufacturing and Assembly is outstanding -- everything fits nicely when we are done. Honestly, when people react as if building this airplane puts me in the class of a rocket scientist, I have to confess that the kit makes it so much easier than one would think by looking at the final product. I am proud to be the builder, but I know that much of the credit has to go to the Van's team. I am so grateful to be a part of the reality that started with a dream.


I have to wear reading glasses to take a decent selfie these days.


Horizontal Stabilizer sheet metal work is done.


With a ten-foot span, the h-stab looks like a genuine aircraft assembly! I love the sense of appreciation finishing this.

I bet there will be a Sun-N-Fun Vans/Lycoming discount, I did that, saved me about $7K after the smoke cleared. Even if you order at Sun-N-Fun it will be 3-5 months before you get it.

Are you building your own panel/harness or having SteinAir do it?

Default Engine Mount

First time I have seen a picture of the engine mount of an RV14, looks like the issue of cracking mounts on earlier models has been addressed

Hi Mark,

May be you know, but you have to change the brake fluid bleed screw to position it down.

Thanks, Eric, I know. To get the axle mounting holes for the wheel pants horizontal, I had to swap sides from the way the factory had the caliper set up. Fortunately, as you point out, the bleed screws can be reversed.
