Anyone know if these are available and if so, where can they be purchased? Thanks

I wouldn't bother...

A friend recently got a pair from Germany, over $2,000 and when they arrived, the fit was terrible. Had to get a pro body shop to finish the fitting.

Unless they have changed in the last 6 months, stick with Vans and save some money - lots of money

I have a set for the 10 and are very happy with them. The gelcoat was far better than Van's and the light modules are awesome. They are pricey, so it's an idividual choice. Give Damien a call at Aveo. They have an add here on VAF. Or just google Aveo in Florida.

Also very pleased with mine on the -7. Fit and finish was very good and I was able to use Vans supplied reinforcing rib for the inboard side opposite the aileron. I wired the landing and taxi lights together to one switch, and they have a built in wig/wag controller. Pilots and controllers have remarked about the intensity of the lights. Additionally the built in module at the rear of the tips (with separate white nav/strobe light) eliminates the need to wire a tail nav/strobe.
Note: These tips were delivered 2 years ago.

Ive seen the ones on jpm757's -7 and they look great. Sounds expensive at first glance, but then realize you subtract the value of vans tips, lenses, whatever lighting system you buy, tail light, then the labor and it quickly becomes more reasonable...

I have a pair on my RV8... fit perfectly, no filler required at all. I am impressed by the build quality.
I dealt with the factory directly... contact is michal@aveogroup.com. They were very helpful in supplying paperwork and information to assist getting them approved for fitting in the UK.
Not convinced its more expensive than buying all the individual bits and fitting them into the Vans tips. They look stunning when fitted, and don't look like someone has taken a chainsaw to the wingtip like the standard Vans ones.
Highly recommended.
