Bringing N9390J to 2018 Standards 

Sparkchasers recently had the privilege of working with a local Raleigh aircraft owner to modernize a well maintained 1966 Piper Cherokee.  The intent of this project was to upgrade the aircraft, enhance pilot situational awareness, and upgrade some of the vintage safety features.  While we were at it, we added one of the custom Sparkchasers instrument panels for icing on top! Many shops will make you an instrument panel, but few can do it with this level of detail. This aircraft is now ready for long trips and will be a joy to fly.  Check out the breakdown of the upgrades we did below:

  • New pilot side windows were installed to replace the worn old units.
  • Over the shoulder seat-belts were installed for better safety.
  • New carpet
  • Avionics Upgrade:
  • Bose Lemo headset jacks with new Bose A20 headsets for the ultimate audio experience
  • Mid-Continent Instruments Digital Clock with USB Charger
  • Garmin Telligence digital assistant button for voice commands to the GTN
  • Sparkchasers vinyl wrap finished instrument panels with stenciling & logos

Initial reports from the aircraft owner is that the upgrades were well worth the investments.  The integrated design using equipment from  Aspen Avionics, Garmin, and TruTak changed the flying experience and has made the airplane feel modern.
