Default Part change and availability: RV-10 wheel pant stand-off

Van's Aircraft recently released a new wheel pant stand-off for the RV-10. The previous assembly could fatigue and fail over time. The new parts are stronger, lighter weight, and a single part in the new design replaces multiple parts in the prior version. We wanted to let you know here since at some point the original standoffs may eventually fatigue and fail -- therefore some owners may wish to "upgrade" before that happens. The new parts are already shipping in current kits, and parts are available to order for flying airplanes as desired. See the below referenced KAI pages for new part visualization and reference.

The changes are reflected in Sections 46 and 48 of the kit assembly instructions, which have been posted to the Safety and Service Info section of the web site. A direct link to the RV-10 revisions and changes category of documents is provided below.
