TERMS & CONDITIONS
We HIGHLY recommend that people use the VP primary structure AS-IS, then do all the modifying and customizing in the secondary structure. Without the required engineering background, one should not modify the primary structure which has been engineered, stressed, and now proven for over 50 years. Basically, do NOT change the primary structure of the VP-1. We are not liable for what can happen if you alter the plans. We highly recommend that you read our entire Disclaimer. Also refer to www.FAA.gov
Having no control over workmanship or fidelity to Plans, the Designer and Publisher must disclaim any guaranty of performance or safety. All forms of transportation are known for the potential to cause injury or even fatalities. The VPs are no exception, and no claim is made that design defects exist or do not exist. User shall determine the suitability of this data for his or her intended purposes and assume all risk and liability in connection therewith.
The Designer and plans publisher’s only obligation shall be to certify that these plans and performance figures are representative of the prototype aircraft which has been certified airworthy under the Experimental/Amateur Built Category by the FAA.
User shall determine the suitability of this product for his or her intended use and assume all risk and liability in connection therewith. Furthermore, though the prototype was subjected to limited acrobatics, as part of the flight test program, the aircraft was designed for fun flying and not the control responsiveness nor load factors required for acrobatics. It is therefore NOT APPROVED for acrobatics, and shall be placarded to this effect.
Modifications: Evans Aircraft cannot sanction any modification of the VP designs from the published plans with intent to modify, and we do not mean to abridge this freedom. However, any changes, other than minor fairing, can create an unsafe aircraft, and therefore voids use of the name “Volksplane” or “VP”, or their use in any form such as “Jones-Volksplane”. Persons modifying must use another un-similar name, particularly on the registration and licensing forms. The intent of this policy is to protect our product image against another’s experimentation, hence all parties are enjoined from the use of our copyrighted product name and/or trademark in connection with such experimentation.
Engineering Consulting: We receive many requests for design consultation, but unfortunately cannot provide this service though we wish we could. There is no way to market plans customized for the individual at a reasonable price. The very best we can do is optimize our designs and offer them to the public “as is”.
