Cessna 177B Cardinal Full Restoration and Updates

Project Showcase

This Cardinal out of Alaska has been owned by the same family since it was purchased from the factory.  The work completed at UVA was the aircraft’s first major refurb since purchase.  A testament to the quality of aircraft built.  We hope the owners can now enjoy the plane for the next 40 years!   Among the more notable work completed:

  • Full strip and paint
  • Full interior.
    • Insulation – super sound-proof
    • Seats
    • Flooring
    • Headliner
    • Sidewalls

  • Rosens
  • All new windows.
