A step-by-step video guide for builders of the Van's Aircraft RV-12 Light Sport Aircraft.

Building an RV-12 has never been easier or faster! The construction manual supplied by Van's Aircraft is indeed complete and accurate, however the ability to watch a detailed demonstration of each step(which is keyed to the construction manual) will result in a faster, more confident build and with fewer mistakes. In the corner of the video screen is a continuous display of the step and page number from the construction manual. As you read Van's written instructions, you can immediately see the results of that step AND suggestions for completing the task. This saves time and frustration in interpreting the written word. It also allows the builder to see ahead in construction, as well as rewind and fast forward - visually.

This single disk DVD is the second in a series of videos being developed to cover the entire build process for the Van's RV-12. It covers the complete WING kit as supplied by Van's Aircraft. The WING kit DVD takes you from the beginning steps of assembling the wing and flaperons of the aircraft - all in the exact sequence as specified by the construction manual.

Note: This production is not associated or endorsed by Van's Aircraft. It does not replace or supersede the documentation provided with the kit. It is meant to be an aid in building the aircraft and its methods are presented only as a suggestion to builders.
