Subject: Re: FAA approved upholstery Date: 26 Jan 1999 00:00:00 GMT I need to re-do the upholstery of the front seats of my AA-5. I have heard conflicting information about having the work done at a non-aviation upholstery shop. For non-comercial use, is it legal to use "fire-retardant material" even if it has not been "FAA Approved". Any enlightment on this issue is appreciated. THANKS I went to a local Wholesale Farbic distributor, the one where the upolsters buy their supplies. They carry several dozen-or-so different brands of fabrics, some of which carry the appropriate flame-retardant specifications, some of which also claim "FAA approved". The salesman at the Wholesale Fabric distributor was very helpful, and knew which fabrics had the flame-retardant specs in the fabric manufacturers catalogs (also the ones being bought by the upolstery shops which specialize in aircraft restorations). I picked the fabrics & colors, and had the salesman photo-copy the pages out of the fabric vendor's catalogs showing the flame-retardant ratings & specs. I took the specs to a local auto upolstery shop (the one that does the prize winning resorations for the local old car enthusiasts, and the roll&tuck hot-rod crowd) and had him reupolster the door panels, the side panels, the seats, and carpeting. He did a first-class job, at about 1/2 of the price of Airtex. I put all of the photocopies of the fabric specs in the aircraft logs, and my A&P signed off the installation.
