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 isn’t complicated, but you’ll 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 don’t exist in the first generation RV-12 skin.

See my post: http://www.vansairforce.com/communit...ghlight=handle.


Go to page 29iS/U-10 and 11 in the KAI for drawings and parts list. I just ordered the parts for possible installation during my CI in June/July. I will try to remember to post results.
