The only reason I mentioned looking through the forums was to indicate that errors in the plans have gotten to be few and far between, so yea, I guess I feel that one error popping up every once in a while doesn't really justify stirring up the idea of loosing confidence in the documentation configuration control, unless someone thinks that having such things in place means absolutely zero errors
May be my background of manufacturing in military standards set my expectations quite high. I spent more than 20 years in the manufacturing of military electronics and armored vehicles.
Overall, outstanding performance from Van's. I feel obligated to appreciate their performance in kit plane business.

I imagine you did work to higher standards in that environment, but I would bet it still didn't result in zero errors, and it probably involved a complex and laborious paperwork process to report them and get them fixed
