Ken came to us with a worn out Cessna 150 that he wanted to make better than new. It first spent some time up with our partners at Upper Valley Aviation getting stripped down, repaired, new plastic and a custom designed paint job. At the same time Ken commissioned them to put beautiful leather interior to compliment the paint job.
While this work was being performed at UVA, Ken was working with us to design the ultimate instrument panel for his “like new” bird. There are always many factors that influence the final avionics package such as capabilities, budget, and vendor but with the small panel on the C150, space was also a big concern. We cut a new panel and wedged an amazing system in it, now allowing Ken to fly wherever he wants either VFR or a very comfortable and safe IFR operation.
Being the most elaborate in the world, he wanted to have new avionics and a custom panel installed. Including a new lower switch panel and leather warp covers for his control yokes.
