Hi Bill, thanks for the compliment. Nothing against you guys with 10s The short answer is that the way we develop our products can be costly (especially for a more complex aircraft like the 10), and we have to have a reasonable confidence that we will recover those costs and hopefully even make a profit.

For various reasons, the timing just has not worked out for us with the 10. Here is a quick summary from our FAQs:

Do you offer interior items for the RV-10?

Here is a beautiful RV-7 we just added to our customer gallery. This one is from Trevor C. in Aurora, OR just up the road. The overall paint scheme and interior color combination is perfect. Nice job Trevor, and thanks for sending us pictures.

Here are some new pictures we just added to our customer gallery. Thanks to Alberto Belfiori from Italy. It's one of the few RV-9 taildraggers, and it looks great. The paint scheme and the interior are very distinctive.

On the Aviators ....that come with the seat frame made internally. Can you explain how the upper seat adjustment flap is attached and by whom? I have seen some with (thanks) and some without...
I have used your nice site and seen the pics of the fame and have to assume it is up to me to find the crossbar through the fabric and pop rivet a piano hinge to the seat and attach my adjustment flap. But not sure.

Also, does anybody have the link or info about the plastic director piece seen on the Tip-up...that funnels the latch assemble down into the correct location as it closes? As seen on Trevor Conroy RV-7 in Post 141 above. Pretty sure I saw a thread about it, but can't seem to find the right search criteria to locate it.
Thanks

Hi Bob,

Let's see if I can explain this properly. Because the Aviator seats are covered with upholstery, they need something to protect the upholstery when it rests against the cross member. For this we have a piece of black kydex (A very durable plastic) guard to protect this area.

The guard is cut out on a CNC router and includes screw holes. We counter sink the screw holes to accept black flush machine screws. These screws mount into threaded inserts already installed in the frame inside the cover.

Now to answer your question . Some customer prefer to just rest the seat against the cross member. For those who want the adjuster flap like the stock seats, we provide an adjuster flap (these are included with all Aviator seats) that is almost identical to the stock adjuster. The only difference is that it is slightly narrower because the location where it attaches is slightly narrower because of the rounded corners of our backrest.

The adjuster comes with the hinge already riveted to it, and holes pre-drilled. To install the adjuster, you remove the screws holding the black plastic guard. Then re-install the guard with the adjuster hinge between the guard and the seat back. The hinge loop or eye "sits" on top of the guard, pointing to the rear. Hopefully that explanation is somewhat understandable.
