As the Spring of '07 rolled around, my interior was showing signs that it had seen better days. It was over 30 yrs. old and was beginning to fall off the walls. The pictures on the right will give you an idea of how bad it was.
I was turned on to Arturo's Aircraft Interiors in Kingman, AZ by Larry Barras, a fellow member of the Cherokee Pilots Assoc. He had posted some pictures of his Cherokee 180 on the associations website, after having his paint and interior done in Kingman. I fell in love with the full leather treatment he got at Arturo's.
With the help of my friend Mark (as seen on this site :-) and his 182, I delivered the plane to Kingman on April 14th. Arturo told me I'd have the plane back in 3 weeks. I wasn't really expecting to have a full floor to ceiling interior refurbishment done in three weeks, but I was pleasantly surprised.
