Las Cruces Aero Services, LLC
While the seats we build are very nice to look at, it's
true that beauty is only skin deep. You'll realize the
real beauty of our seats when you sit in one.
We build all of our seats using three different densities
- different depths of cushiness, in other words - of
foam. The seat cushions and back rests are firm yet
plush. The headrests and side bolsters are harder and
Even though our standard seats are very comfortable
to sit in for long periods of time, we can easily add a
layer of memory foam to the top with the warning that
you might just want to move into your airplane and
sleep there if we do that.
We can modify stitching patterns, cushion designs, the size of
bolsters and, to some degree, the size of the seat itself to match
whatever you like.
As you scroll down to the seats below, you'll see our three most
popular designs, the ones our customers seem to like best.
However, we're certainly not limited to the ones you see here and
we're always eager to try something new.
Before we redo the interior in your plane, we'll encourage you to
think about details like stitching and textures - details that will make
your plane unique and custom to you.
We build bench seats the same way we build a pilot's
chair, with the same level of comfort and support.
Our Side Panels
This design is by far our most popular. We
can add height to the side bolsters, modify
the stitching around the bolsters, contour the
headrest, add length if you're tall, width if
you're wide, and use two tones of material
as you see here. All those options are
available at no extra charge.
This design for stitching is popular too. You'll note that on
this particular chair, the side bolsters aren't as prominent as
in other of our seats. This chair is in the passenger
compartment of a business jet where we commonly build
the seats to look like those in a high end automobile. The
stitching on the back and bottom cushions that arch
outward outline the bolsters.
Our Sport Seat is a tad more expensive than our
other designs because of the amount of cutting we
need to do for the foam and leather. As with our
other chairs, and again at no extra charge, we can
modify the seat with an integral headrest and use
areas of gathered or perforated leather if you'd like.
On any of our seats, embroidery is about the only
extra charge we have.
This door panel is typical of our standard
interior. The stitching pattern resembles the
design the airplane came with originally.
What's decidedly different about the panel is
that we use half an inch of foam under the
vinyl covering. The foam adds texture and a
sense of luxury to the airplane. It also masks
imperfections in the underlying structure.
On this door panel, we gave the blue strip
along the top a gathered look. We attached
a separate door pocket to the outside of the
carpet on the bottom rather than hiding it
inside the carpet itself.
Unfortunately, the quality of our photography
does not match the quality of our interior
restorations or the mechanical work we do.
We trust you'll excuse the grainess for the
This is another door panel that resembles the
original design that came with the aircraft
when it was new. We tried to emulate the
long folded pocket design on other planes but
it just didn't look right.
When we work with you on the design of the
interior in your airplane, we'll be open and
honest with you about what we believe works
and what doesn't.
This door panel steps away from from
original equipment design. It's simple yet

We pay attention to details at your feet, too, like the extra pad we
sew into the carpet on low wing planes where climbing in and out can
cause more wear.
By the way, you'll notice that we do a nice job as well covering

Covering your glareshield is something
we can do as well. It can add a nice
finishing touch to a new interior.
As with the plastic window surrounds, overhead

Not only does it feel nice - very silky and soft - it
stands up to the harshness of the sun.
When we cover the plastic pieces in your plane, we don't just cut
some vinyl and slap it on with glue. We make seams at the 90 degree
bends and stitch them. Then we use the glue. But carefully. No
The finished window surrounds are quite dependent upon the
underlying piece of plastic, as you can see from the picture on the left.
However, before we cover a piece of plastic, we make every effort
to repair it.
The window surround above was much more badly warped and rippled
before we worked on it with heat. We usually recommend replacing a
piece like this before we cover it but our customers have the final say.
Our Seat Designs
Our Window Surrounds
Unlike the design of the seat cushion that's
probably in your plane now, we form the
front of our seats so they look more like a
chair you’d find in your home.
Not that you’d notice it consciously, really,
but we believe an eye will catch a detail like
this on a subliminal level and add to the
comfort of the plane.
You'll note that with our standard seams, we use the same color thread as the leather.
However, as an option, we can build the chair using contrasting stitching - no extra charge.
