That depends on a lot
of factors, and for many reasons we cannot give you an exact date on
which you will receive the glider. Every order will have an estimated
delivery date associated with it, according to the following:
Each glider listed on
the inventory list will have an estimate of when the glider can be
shipped from the factory. An inventory glider that is assembled, test
flown and ready to ship, will be listed on the inventory list with an
“Immediate” availability, meaning that it is available
for immediate shipment. (That does not mean it will ship immediately
– see item 3 – c below.) All other gliders will be listed
as “Available:” as of some listed date – the date
that we estimate that the glider, if purchased, can be test flown and
available for shipment.
A custom glider order
will be quoted an estimated ship date at time of order – again
this is the date we estimate that the glider will be available for
shipment from the factory.
Please keep in mind
quotes are ESTIMATES only – they represent our best guess
based on anticipated production rates and our past experience.
A delivery quote
represents our estimate as to when a given glider will be ready for
shipment from Wills Wing to your dealer. It is not an implied
promise of the date of actual shipment or of the date you will
receive the glider.
There are many
factors that are at least partly outside of our direct control that
can affect both the actual shipping date and the date you receive
There may be
unanticipated delays in production, due to material shortages,
equipment downtime, employee absences, etc.
There may be a
delay in factory test flying due to weather or other factors.
There may be a
delay in shipping the glider after it is test flown as a result of
consolidation with other items at the request of your dealer, or as
a result of a backlog in the shipping department due to
fluctuations in the shipping volume.
There will be
some time in transit for the glider after it is shipped from here,
and there may be an additional delay after the glider arrives at
your dealer in the delivery of the glider to you by your dealer.
