Default New Interior Option RV-7/7A/9/9A (Classic Aero)

We've added new side panel and seat options for RV-7/7A/9/9A customers. In doing so, we decided to also put together an interior package around them. You can see more details by clicking on the image or the link below.

Please feel free to post any questions or comments here. I usually check the forums daily, but I don't always log in to see PMs.







More Info on Classic Aero Website ?

Thanks,

I'm sorry we won't be there this time. I'm hoping we can do it next year though. We've just had too much on our plate the last 12 months.

Hi Jim,

No update other than we are currently working through the first run of RV-14 seats. The first time on something always takes longer, and requires more attention to work through things. We will be doing carpets next. Side panels will be after that.

I apologize for not being more on top of the RV-14 products. Because the RV-14 kit delivery schedule kept being extended, we kept slipping in other projects. The idea was to get them out of the way so that once the RV-14 was close we could focus all attention on that. It finally came, and we were still wrapped up in some of those projects

No problem Charlie. It's kind of a long story, but the short version is that we planned and began working on a very ambitious (costly to develop) full interior option for the RV-10 back in 2008...

We ended up putting it on the back burner when the economy slowed. In the mean time, we have stayed very busy offering products for the 2 place RVs, and other options for the RV-10 have become available. Currently our focus is on the RV-14.

Aren't you glad I didn't give you the long version


Here is also a page from our FAQ section:

Since the Sierra side panels are a new item, I thought I would post some actual pictures of them too.





Hope everyone has a nice 4th weekend.

They look great. How much weight does each piece add?

Hi Chris,

We are pretty happy with the weights on all of these components. The carpet is probably the main one I wish we could reduce, but it's a balance between providing good sound dampening in the floor and weight. Here are the individual weights:

Seats (2) - 7.8 lb (3.5 kg)
Side panels (full set) - 5.2 lb (2.4 kg)
Stick boots (2) - .6 lb (.27 kg)
Front carpet - 4.5 lb (2.0 kg)
Gear weldment covers (2) - 1.5 lb (.7 kg)

Total for tail dragger - 18.1 lb (8.2 kg)
Total for nose wheel - 19.6 lb (8.8 kg)

Hope I got the metric conversions right for our international customers Let me know if you have any other questions. I'd be happy to help.

Edit: These weights are for cloth seats and side panels. I don't have weights yet for all materials, but they will increase weight somewhat. My guess is that leather (the heaviest) will add no more than 1.5 total.
