Aircraft interior restoration is one of the treats we enjoy supporting our clients on... often using the finest quality materials and design features, these are projects that really stand out! We work with many MRO (Maintenance, Repair, Overhaul) clients, as well as A&P Mechanics and Aircraft Owners to develop custom designs that make each aircraft unique.

The double diamond center panels really make this design stand out, and the elegant lines throughout give this a modern, clean appearance. We thought it might be interesting to take a look behind the scenes at some of the steps we took along the way to complete this project.
