Van's Aircraft has updated the RV-14/14A Plans Pages with minor changes to the following sections:
47 PAGES 2, 19, 20, 23 AND 30
Vanís Aircraft has revised Section 47 of the RV-14 KAI (Kit Assembly Instructions.) A small number of builders with flying aircraft have reported that portions of their cowl baffle contact the top cowl during engine startup and shutdown. This contact can result in damage to the top cowl as well as air leaks, adversely affecting the cooling potential of the baffle system.
Owners of flying aircraft are asked to inspect the inside of their top cowl within the first 50 hours of flight. If damage is found, follow the updated instructions in Section 47 as detailed above. Owners should periodically inspect this area on an ongoing basis.
Download the latest version of these pages from the Van's Aircraft website and note the changes documented for each individual page.
