Our RV6, RV7, and RV9 Seating. From Left to Right; High Back Option, Integrated Headrest Option, and our Low Back Option Seats. Regardless of your choice, all of our seats are available at the same cost.
After much work, patience, and determination, we have completed the prototype kit for our Vans RV7/A and RV9/A. The interior kit we have developed offers our customers a professionally manufactured kit and provides loads of options.
Our Standard Kits include the following:
2 Complete Seats (Seat Backs and Seats)
2 Side Panels
2 Stick Boots
4 Recessed Panel Covers for above the Lower Panels
2 Spar Cap covers
2 Arm Rests
The Seats themselves can be manufactured as high back, low back, or headrest models. Low back model seats extend approx. 5 cm above the seat, while the high back seats extend 12 cm above the seat (2 inch and 4.5 inches, respectively. On the head rest option seats the seat extends a total of 16 cm above the seat frame back while still offering access to the baggage compartment.
The seats are manufactured from standard PU Foam, and have a dual density layer of Viscous (memory) foam. The seat uses two different densities of Viscous Foam, while the seat back uses a single density.
Side Panels are manufactured as a single piece, and include two pockets on each side. The larger pocket directly to the side of the seats utilizes the structure for storage, while the pocket near the landing gear weldment (on tricycle gear aircraft) is backed to prevent objects from falling.
Options for the seating include material options, finishing options, and integrated options such as lumbar supports, seat heaters. If you are feeling frisky we can even include integral blowers (6 in each seat) to help you keep cool (seat covering is limited to perforated leather or a breathable fabric) and massage functions for those long trips.

CUSTOM SEAT DESIGNS
We have drawn up a jpg outline of our different seating for our customers to use when developing or crafting ideas for their interiors. You can download the file below, and use a simple paint program to edit the image. Below is an example from a customer to help decide colors, placements, finishing, etc.
Our Inflateable Lumbar Supports available. Single Chamber support on the left, dual Chamber support on the right. The dual chamber support has two handpumps to adjust pressure over a larger portion of the back. We also offer a Single Chamber bladder that is controlled via a panel mounted switch and operates on 12VDC.
About our kits.... Our kits are 100% hand made and assembled by us in our workshop using a variety of materials and colors, and are completely customizable to fit the needs and desires of our customers. The kits have been developed to fit the standard Vans RV 7 and 9 models, and unless otherwise specifically asked for by customers, come unmodifed. If you have any concerns or questions regarding the fit of our kits in your aircraft, feel free to contact us to discuss your particular needs. We can modify the kit to fit around obstructions or modifications in the sidewalls if needed. In addition, the seating density can usually be changed to accomodate any particular wishes of our customers (i.e. a very hard density at the bottom of the seats for customers who are concerned about compression and comfort).
