I love being unique! I am one of the RV-8s with the sheepskin and I love it. I have a little back issue and decided early on that the seats were going to be a "splurge". On a long x-country, there's nothing more comfortable that sitting on sheepskin. My hangar mate also has sheepskin in his -8 but it was from Oregon Aero. I believe that the seats featured in Luke's first set of photos are mine.

If you go with sheepskin, make sure the cut outs are little deeper for the stick because the sheepskin is bulkier and will slightly interfere with stick movement.

That's great to hear. I love the pics of the brown leather interior a few posts up, but not crazy about sitting on hot leather. Plus my wife hates it so it is definitely a no go. Sheepskin it is!!

Here's the latest RV in our Customer Galleries. It's from Darin Anderson just up the road in Washington. The exterior colors and the interior fit together nicely, and kind of remind me of a high end business jet. Thanks for the pictures Darin!

Here are some new pictures from Ian in the UK of his very nice RV-7. This is just a great looking plane. I really like the colors, and the layout of the paint scheme. The interior looks pretty nice too Thanks Ian!

Here's the latest addition to our Customer Galleries. It's an RV-7A built by Krea Ellis in Georgia (build assist from Synergy Air). It features a very unique and beautiful paint scheme, and our full interior. The overall combination is impressive. Thanks Krea!

Default Beautiful Interior!

Thanks Luke for your comments on our plane. We love the interior - beautiful craftsmanship and attention to detail. There were many compliments about the interior when the plane was on display at OSH this year.

Now if only we could talk you into getting back in the RV-10 interior business to do the 10 we are building!
