Paint

Tri-Star Aviation PaintTri-Star Aviation PaintWe have a passion for great looking aircraft. There is nothing like a professionally painted, high gloss aircraft. Steal the show on the ramp next time you pull up with a custom paint job from Tri-Star Aviation. We have 20 years experience painting, and can handle anything from Cubs to King Airs. We can restore your original paint scheme and striping, or create something as unique as you. We use computer design tools to plan your paint scheme before actually painting the aircraft. But a great paint job is more then skin deep beauty. It is also part of a well maintained aircraft. A great paint job will not only protect the airframe, and also reduce surface friction for greater performance.

Upholstery

Tri Star Aviation UpholsteryDon’t let your back kill you in that uncomfortable seat! Was your upholstery new in 1967? Does your airplane induce airsickness just sitting in it on the ground? Let Tri-Star Aviation renew your interior with the latest fabrics and looks. We can make that seat a pleasure to sit in and make you plane look and smell new again. Your passengers will thank you. Never again will you have to hear the phrase- “You mean you want me to get into that?” Our craftsman has 15 years experience in most GA aircraft. We can also refit or replace the plastic parts on your aircraft.

Perhaps an experimental engine or an old radial engine- ask us! With our years of experience, it is likely we have already serviced one. We regularly maintain O-320’s O-470’s O-520’s and IO-550’s.
