In all cases, critical and difficult-to-make components are prefabricated using Alisport factory tooling/jigs and supplied in ready-to-use or near ready-to-use condition. This leaves the less-critical construction steps, assembly, and finishing to the builder. For example, the fuselage halves are joined, tubular steel structures are pre-welded and powder coated, the spars are complete with precision jigged spar-pin bushings, and the sandwich wing skins are bonded to the spar and rib.
This approach has the advantage of assuring those builders without previous construction experience that their Silent 2 will have the structural integrity and performance capability as intended by the factory.
A very detailed and extensively illustrated Construction and Workshop Manual is supplied with the kit. We conservatively estimate that a first-time builder can complete a Silent 2 in about 500 hours; another 150 hours are required to complete a Silent 2 Electro self-launch version.
