Torn seat


The pilot’s seat in N194SP is a bit distressed and there are a couple tears. It’s not terrible, but it’s not ideal and it’s just going to get worse. I’m trying to decide how to remedy that. A full reupholster of the seat is between $1000 and $1500 and will take the plane off-line for a few days. I could also throw a sheepskin cover on the seat for about $300 per seat. There’s a chance I could just fix the panels that are torn but I’m not sure how much that would save me.

For now, the problem is cosmetic, as the seat still feels great to sit in. Unless you’re sitting in it naked. Please don’t sit in my plane naked…

Those of you who rent my plane (or are thinking about it), leave a comment. Let me know what you’d like and what is important to you.
