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.

Customized Instrument Panels For Piper Aircraft

Approved for Aztec, Apache & Geronimo aircraft, this one-piece design eliminates cockpit display clutter and is shock-mounted to isolate full panel. Several panel styles include back-lighting or post-lighting, engine instrumentation and radio configuration options. Dual centerstack design with option for copilot instruments. Price includes STC paperwork, eight Lord mounts and complete installation plans. STC affords the owner/installer great latitude in customizing panel to fit individual avionics & instrumentation needs without the need for a field approval. Installation available, visit our website for details.
