Importation and Costs

    The commercial transaction started in the middle november of 1999, always being made contacts by fax or e-mail . Because of our little buiding experience (until that, we used to construct only buildings), we had opted to order the "full quick build" kit, or complete kit, wich supposed airframe build time by the manufacturer would be about 1300 hs. First of all, it had arrived the 79 construction plans and the construction manual.

The plans set and construction manuals

    The placed orders at the Mustang Aeronautics was so big, and with brazilian government restrictions in our wood crating (īcause of an insect inside them), things that sufficiently delayed the import process and crating, so our kit had arrived only 10 months later, in September of 2000.

Tail cone components

    The kit final cost , including air freight, dispatching freight taxes, custom taxes, etc., reached near to USS 20.000,00 value. The aerial freight was, without any kind of doubt,a little more expensive choice, but the port disembarrassment and terrestrial freight from the Rio de Janeiro sea port to Brasilia, would be a kind of headache in bureaucracy and final costs. I think that we made the right decision
