Aug. 28 ï¿½ Airovation Interior Restyling located in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, will contact Rare Aircraft this week to get details needed to make the seat cushions for our Waco UPF-7 biplane. Airovation has a strong interest in helping restore antique airplanes and also serves the higher end piston market such as Piper Malibu/Mirage/Meridian and Lancair aircraft. But Airovation focuses primarily on the business jet market and can place an entire interior for jets as large as Gulfstreams in a trailer and travel to the jet's location for on-site installation. Airovation offers a unique solution to Malibu/Mirage/Meridian owners who find they are too tall for the factory-installed seats. The company custom-designs seats that allow pilots as tall as 6 feet 5 inches to sit comfortably in the airplane. For the AOPA Waco, Airovation will design the cushions to be historically accurate. The company is located at Flying Cloud Airport in the southwest Minneapolis area. For information, call Airovation at 952/944-9690 or visit the Web site.
A touch of history, affordable flying, unique sightseeing, a good meal, and a community of pilots: Isn’t that what general aviation is all about?
Getting the job done on the local and national levels requires long-term planning, a hands-on approach, and keeping the effort moving, said Sean Collins, AOPA’s Eastern regional manager.
Deep in the dense, moss-draped, oak forest of Amelia Island is a luxurious plantation resort. Check out this Florida destination while you are in the Southeast for AOPA's St. Simons, Georgia, Fly-In on Nov. 8.
