American Aircraft started
as an idea to renovate high performance twin piston
aircraft such as the Piper P-Navajo and the Beech
spend a great deal finding and purchasing low-time,
undamaged aircraft to offer our clients. After
purchase, each aircraft is put through a painstaking
renovation process that involving airframe, power
plant, avionics and cosmetic upgrade.
First, all aircrafts logbooks are reviewed for accuracy and completeness. FAA
forms 337's Airworthiness Directive and Mandatory Service Bulletins are then
checked for compliance.
Second, The engines are sent out for overhaul. This is perhaps the most important
aspect of the renovation. There are only a few overhaul shops in the country
that specialize in the complete overhaul and reassembly of certain aircraft engines.
We have chosen Midwest Aircraft, Inc. in Newton Kansas as our vendor for this
process on the P-Navajo. Dennis Collins and his team of trained experts do very
good work. They work directly with us on every aspect of the power plant reconditioning
process of your aircraft.
each aircraft is sent to the paint shop for
a complete stripping of its existing paint.
All fiberglass parts are removed and repaired.
Sheet metal and bodywork is completed before
the aircraft is primed and painted in one
of our paint schemes. You may have an option
at this point to create a paint design that
suite your personal or corporate tastes.
We have chosen two vendors for our paint
process; Cimarron Aircraft in El Reno, Oklahoma
and Woodlake Aircraft Refinishing in Sandwich,
IL. Both shops have excellent reputations
and are nationally renowned.
When the paint is cured, the aircraft are sent to the Avionics Place, Inc.
in Rockford, IL. Tony and his staff will begin the task of updating the front
office of your aircraft. If your timing is right, you may be able to choose
the components that best suit your needs. Whether you prefer King, Garmin or
a combination thereof, your aircraft will have state-of-the-art GPS mapping
capability combined with NEXRAD and METAR uplink. We can even show you what
the avionics suite of your dreams will look like before it is installed for
Finally, The final step in the process is to retool the interior of the aircraft.
Our goal is to offer an aircraft interior that reflects the taste and design
consistent with today's modern aircrafts. Typically, a combination of leather,
fabric, and finished wood produce a comfortable and tasteful aircraft interior
that anyone would be proud to own. But if you prefer something more exotic
we can design it for you also. We can also install a DVD entertainment package
or high performance digital stereo system. When it comes to custom interior
work for you aircraft, just remember, truly the sky is the limit.
