Default Cabin Egress Handle

This handle is a good idea. It is incorporated on the 12 iS. I would like to try to install on an existing 12. Anyone attempt this? Vans will sell the parts but have not come up with retro kit with a plan. Thanks

Take a look at pages 29iS/U-10 and 11 from the RV-12iS fuselage plans. They show how and where the egress handle attaches to the upper forward fuselage skin. It isnít complicated, but youíll have to be very careful to correctly position the ribs that support the handle. The iS skin has prepunched holes, making this easy, but those holes donít exist in the first generation RV-12 skin.
