Our carpeting meets the stringent FAR 23.853 requirements and comes with the Statement of Compliance with Federal Aviation Regulations.

Special Information for PA28 Wall Panels:
If you are refurbishing the interior of a PA28, you are likely to come across any number of situations regarding the wall panels. For instance, the original Piper wall panel sustrates were fabricated from a fire resistant cardboard type material. This deteriorates over the years and looks like this when you remove the panels (click to enlarge):
If this is the case, then you'll need a "complete wall panel set". For this, we use 2024T3 aircaft aluminum for the substrates as opposed to using cardboard or plastic sign board. This provides the installer with the most flexible product to install and is a permanent solution for the panels. The complete wall panel set comes with all new metal wall panels substrates with the new upholstery already sewn and installed for you.
In the event that you have a later model PA28 (such as the Warrior and Archer), the panels come with everything except the plastic window trim. You'll need to remove the trim from your old panels and install them on the new panels using simple pop rivets. The upholstery will already be installed except for the top so all you have to do is wrap the material around the trim and glue in place. Here is a photograph that shows this type of installation. The upholstery has been removed in this photograph so that you may see how the trim is centered and riveted in alignment. Pretty easy all around.
In the event that you already have good wall panel substrates, then you can purchase new upholstery soft goods separately for a lesser cost.

In the event that you already have good wall panel upholstery, but the substrates are deteriorated, then you may want to purchase the metal wall panel substrates by themselves.
