Just one clarification point (cause obviously everyone loves the vendor they choose). One fundamental difference in seats is that the Classic Aero seats includes its own seat back frame that is wrapped in leather and has a seat back pocket sewn into it. I’m pretty sure all the other vendors seatbacks fit into the vans supplied seat back frame. Most vendors offer electric seat heat as an option (your wife will thank you) and apparently Lemke offers a ventilated seat option too.

3 Lemke installs that I have experienced are all top notch. We will be using him for our RV10.

BTW, he is an American

Mark me down as another happy Lemke customer. Iím not sure how, put the rv-14 package I got was almost half the price of anyone else. Although most folks go with his leather options I opted for sheepskin for summer/winter comfort.

Although Iíve only sat on my Lemke interior whilst the fuselage remains in the comfort of my garage, it is very nicely made and seems comfortable. Looking forward to trying it out for longer in the future!

I have the Lemke Carpets and interior on my RV9A I will definitely be getting the seats in due course, (to replace the standard Vans ones which are very nicely covered in fabric but I'd just prefer the leather option to match the rest of the interior).

Service and comms from Robert Lemke is exceptionally helpful and the quality is excellent, particularly given the very reasonable costs. As I am in the UK buying from a European manufacture made even more sense due to shipping and import tax considerations.

FYI, Flightline is not taking orders at this time. Abby told me yesterday it may be June before they even start taking orders.

I have Flightline in my 14 and am very happy. Abby was great to work with and the interior has held up very well in 3+ years of flying.

Iím not surprised. I ordered new seats and carpet from her in May of 2021Ödelivered end of March of 2022. That was almost exactly what she predicted when I originally ordered them. The other places I called were backed up too, but substantially more expensive. I thought, and still do, that Flightline was much more cost-effective that the others I looked at.

I replaced the old seats in my RV-8 last year with seats from Flightline. Abby was really great to work with. The quality is excellent and the price was good. Iíd use Flightline again.

Default Very happy with Classic Aero interior

Four years in and a little over 300 hours - my Classic Aero interior is like new. Luke and Jeremiah are exceptional to work with and they stand behind their products.

Additionally, they are long time advertisers here on VAF, so they help support this forum that we all value so much. I think Flightline does as well, not so sure about Lemke.
