Like This Classic Car, a Meticulously Maintained Piper Geronimo Conversion By Montana Diamond Aire Will Provide Safety and Stability For Years to Come!

 

When we overhaul an Apache airframe, we completely strip the aircraft inside and out. All of the tail surfaces are removed including the vertical and horizontal stabilizers. We have STC SA2793SW which is a rudder bracket reinforcement, SA4007SW which is a structural improvement parts kit for the flaps and elevators. The whole aircraft is powerwashed inside and out, all surfaces are inspected. The landing gear gets updated (much-stronger) drag links, the tail system attach areas get a doubler added and all new attachment hardware before the tail components are reinstalled. All hoses are replaced, control surface hinges/bearings…all hydraulic components overhauled, all moving parts in the whole airframe get re-bushed or bearings replaced as applicable….the list gets pretty long. In short, we are very thorough with our airframe overhauls.

Montana Diamond Aire has several Piper Apache airframes available for made-to-order Piper Geronimo Conversions.  Order today and we can have you in the air by early 2010!

Piper Aztec and Piper Apache Custom Instrument Panels

Custom Piper Instrument Panel

Custom Piper Instrument Panel

Every aircraft deserves a quality aluminium instrument panel

With the average age of aircraft in the GA fleet pushing 25 years, it is common to find interior plastics in most aircraft to be in very poor shape. The combined effects of time, heat, UV rays, wear and tear and even routine maintenance have all taken their toll.http://www.diamondaire.com

Whether you have damaged plastic overlays or simply wish to update your panel to the modern look and feel of a true state-of-the-art instrument panel, we have solutions for a variety of aircraft.
