Default Optional Taildragger Step

Hi all,

I'm on 26-10, where the optional taildragger step kit is first mentioned. Is there any need/advantage to purchase the step kit now, or does it simply bolt on afterward (assuming you perform the steps on 26-17)?

Thanks,

Tom

You won't need the steps yet. They are relatively easy to fit later.

Even if you don't think you want the steps now I would fit all the optional parts. I can't see how they could be fitted later. I didn't think I needed them (and don't use them) but my wife does, so on they went.

I did not put the steps in and wish I did.

I did install the steps and use them every time. Btw I’m 6’4

Oh also Vans has installed the steps in the factory plane now
