What is the average time between ordering empennage kit and being shipped?

For the emp kit it's usually pretty much immediate. Those are kept in stock and ready to go. I ordered mine on the 21st, Fedex delivered it on the 27th. Just to be sure, check Van's web site under 'prices and lead times.'

If you can afford it, get the emp, wings, and fuse all at once. You will be finished with the emp and wings way sooner than you might think! Save on shipping.

Another benefit of ordering all kits together is you have flexibility in reordering the build process, but that is really only a benefit when dealing with the fuselage and finishing kits.

If there is a major design change in the works you should decide whether you want the existing or new design and schedule accordingly. I was building while the move to Skyview was in play. I ordered everything to avoid having to make changes to accommodate Skyview on a D180 harness.

Definitely some good advice as usual. I will call Vans tomorrow and check on the status of my order. I ordered the empennage kit on Monday and haven't heard anything about shipping it out.
I was planning on ordering the wing kit next. May just go ahead and tell them Tomorrow to ship it out as soon as they can. I don't want to have a lot of time between builds.
