AIRCRAFT FABRIC COVERING
As part of our aircraft repair services, we offer complete aircraft recovering as well as fabric repairs. We use all fabric covering systems; however, we specialize in Superflite urethane systems for their attractiveness and durability. Total ground-up recovering would consist of disassembling to the bare frame, bead blast, necessary framework repairs, epoxy prime, replacement of all control covers, pulleys, fairings, glass, reassembly and fresh annual inspection. We utilize our state-of-the-art spray booth for the refinishing stage of the restoration. The 1929 Spartan model C3-225 was restored in our shop for Superflite in 2004 and can be seen on permanent display in the EAA Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The Spartan won the “Lindy Award” at Oshkosh in 2004.
WARBIRD MAINTENANCE AND RESTORATION
Long’s Aircraft Service has had quite a bit of experience with aircraft restoration and maintenance, including working with several types of warbirds. Some examples of these aircraft are: PT-19, BT-13, PT 13/17, T-6, Beech 18 variances, T-34, T-28, Hawker Sea-Fury, T-33, F-86, A-26, C-47, etc. These projects ranged from minor repairs to complete restorations. Pictures of some of these aircraft can be found in our Project Gallery.
OTHER GENERAL SERVICES
A big part of the day-to-day operation of our business includes annual inspections, pre-purchase inspections, general maintenance, minor engine repairs to complete overhauls and insurance repair estimates. These services are provided for all makes and models of GA aircraft and are performed with a level of quality that other aircraft maintenance companies cannot match.
We also provide pickup and delivery services either by ground or air for most of our services as well as aircraft recovery.
