Vans RV9A Custom Paint

Vans RV9A Custom Paint See the above pictures.  They are of Upper Valley's latest project completion; a beautiful custom paint scheme on a Vans RV9A Custom Paint scheme.  Our project lead was Tony Clarke, who was responsible for prep, topcoats, layout and final application.  We are proud of Tony's accomplishment and the end result. This project was challenging, primarily because the lines went through almost every control and removable part, including the wheel pants.  This means they have to be removed and reinstalled more than once to get the lines and taping right. Plane Schemer provided the scheme for the client, UVA provided final top coats, paint masks and support.

Cessna 208 Caravan on Amphibs Paint

This Cessna 208 Caravan on Amphibs Paint project was a good project from our friends at Island Express Air in Alaska.  A great company.  This caravan came to us for paint and needed a lot of love as many of these ocean-operated amphibious aircraft do.  At UVA we are able to handle all structural and mechanical needs necessary to get the project out the door and generating revenue for our clients.

Beaver DCH-2 Paint – Fifty Shades of Grey!

This unique beaver came to us from another Alaskan client.  The unique scheme was on the aircraft when our client purchased it and because it was so unique he decided to keep it.  Please take a look at some historical photos of N93E here.  This aircraft was in pretty nice shape after going through rebuild with Keenan Zerkel at Alaska Aircraft Sales so very few items outside of strip and paint were required.  We were happy to see this bird in the air and flying for the next 50 years!
